Telensa, a provider of smart city control systems, has been selected to deploy its PLANet intelligent street lighting system in Wellington, New Zealand.

Telensa PLANet is an end-to-end intelligent street lighting system consisting of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, a dedicated wireless network owned by the city and a central management application. The system pays for itself in reduced energy and maintenance costs, improves quality of service through automatic fault reporting and uses streetlight poles for supporting hubs for smart city sensors. It has so far been used to connect more than one million lights worldwide.

“We’re delighted to be working with Wellington City Council to deliver a more efficient, more resilient streetlighting system that will be responsive to citizens’ needs for decades to come,” said Will Gibson, founder and chief commercial officer at Telensa. “And we’re looking forward to working together on low-cost smart city applications, enabled by the city’s new lighting network.”

The project began last month and is due for completion in June 2018.
