Cisco Kinetic for Cities Lighting

Smart lighting for smart cities

A multisensor Internet of Things platform

Streetlights are essential for cities. But they’re a major energy draw that can add up to 38% of a city’s utility bill. To reduce electrical demand, municipalities are turning to LED technology. Our solution creates powerful light-sensory networks that transform LED fixtures into smart devices that help enable services for citizens and businesses.
