The TALQ Consortium announced last month it has certified four outdoor lighting products as TALQ compliant. The products are the first products to demonstrate interoperability according to the TALQ Specification. The standard enables cities and municipalities to choose future-proof, interoperable and open solutions for smart street lighting and other smart city applications from multiple vendors.
The TALQ Consortium has granted TALQ compliance to three Central Management Systems (CMS) and one TALQ Bridge hardware component:
MUSE is a software platform, developed by Citégestion–a subsidiary of Citelum group EDF–to manage all urban domains of a city. Indoor and outdoor domains (street lighting, video-protection, traffic light system, air quality sensors) may be referenced in the solution, including networks that connect them.
StreetLight.Vision (SLV), Silver Spring Networks’ Central Management System provides the means for a city to leverage a smart streetlight network and transform it into a true smart city platform. By enabling remote command and control, along with real-time monitoring, the efficient management of streetlights, and an expanding range of smart city assets, is made possible.
Smart FireFly (SFF) is UVAX’s dedicated CMS software for controlling outdoor lighting systems. It features tools to remotely oversee all streetlights of a municipality, supervise their performance, such as power consumption or luminaire efficiency by means of an intuitive and user-friendly interface.
