Silver Springs Inc., www.silverspringnet.com, announced an expansion of its relationship with EVESA, www.evesa.fr, the operator responsible for managing the streetlight and traffic-control systems in the city of Paris, to deploy a citywide canopy network connecting the above ground and subterranean cabinet-based controllers for street and traffic lights across the city, including such iconic neighborhoods as the Louvre, Hotel-de-Ville, Palais-Bourbon, Elysee, the Bourse, and remaining arrondissements.
Silver Spring’s smart-city platform helps municipalities deploy intelligent lighting systems that dramatically improve system reliability, increase energy efficiency, lower operational costs, extend equipment lifespans, and enhance citizen safety and quality of life.
The open, standards-based solution also enables cities to establish a platform for future smart city applications and services such as traffic management, environmental sensors, smart parking, electric vehicle charging, electricity metering, water conservation, and many others.
In addition to the City of Paris, Silver Spring has recently been selected by Florida Power & Light, www.fpl.com, connecting nearly 500,000 networked street lights across South Florida. Silver Spring is also connecting critical infrastructure in iconic cities such as Bristol, Chicago, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Melbourne, Miami, Sao Paulo, San Francisco, Singapore, and Washington D.C., and has delivered more than 20 million IPv6 networked devices for critical infrastructure networks on five continents.
