Witti starts the commercialization of an integrated solution for smart public lighting
Witti, a French company dedicated to smart lighting for smart cities and industry, is delighted to announce the launch of a full solution for public lighting management systems based on the Wirepas Mesh wireless communication networking.
Witti has developed an electronic board (the IRIS communication module) using Wirepas
technology in the 868MHz ISM frequency band, which it has integrated into its range of LED luminaires to remotely control them from a platform of supervision in the cloud. For two years, Witti has partnered with the Finnish company Wirepas, and is delighted to soon be able to extend this collaboration to the lighting of industrial buildings and logistics platforms by taking advantage of the development of Wirepas Mesh based on Silicon Labs chips running at 2.4GHz.
As Frédéric Guinard, Managing Director of Witti, says: “We have pioneered the adoption, qualification and development of Wirepas Mesh network technology for connected lighting. This choice was highly motivated by the performance, cost and simplicity of deploying networks without any configuration with the possibility of setting up dense and scalable infrastructures. ”
« The collaboration with Witti is again a great proof point of the versatility and performance
of Wirepas Mesh. With the pure software approach we are able help hardware and platforms
to offer a broad range of different benefits that are fit-‐for-‐purpose. » Sébastien Pellorce,
Wirepas Country Manager for France says.
The smart lighting solution from Witti is very effective in terms of communication reliability,
programming and system management, reaching multiple goals such as decreasing energy
consumption, enhancing security, simplifying infrastructure maintenance, multi-‐site
management and interoperability of existing or future systems.
Witti designs and develops integrated solutions for smart lighting indoor and outdoor targeting cities
and industry. The integrated Witti solution includes Led luminaires, a wireless network, embedded
software and a system Platform to control and manage the full lighting infrastructure in real time and
over the air. The Witti smart lighting solution enables significant energy savings (>75%) and
contributes to the environmental protection.
Wirepas Mesh enables wireless IoT networking at massive scale. It is a de-centralized IoT network
protocol that can be used to connect, locate and identify lights, sensors, beacons, assets, machines
and meters in cities, buildings, industry, logistics and energy – with unprecedented scale, density,
flexibility and reliability. It can be used on any radio hardware and on any frequency band. Wirepas
has its headquarters in Tampere, Finland and offices in Australia, France, Germany, India, South Korea,
the UK and the United States.
