Telematics Wireless to Offer Smart City Solutions to Local Authorities in the United Kingdom
Holon, Israel - 14 September 2016 - Telematics Wireless (Telematics), a leader in smart city control applications, has been awarded onto the YPO Framework Agreement for Streetlighting Products and Services (Framework 711). This agreement will enable Telematics to provide smart lighting solutions to a wide customer base in the UK, including the local public sector and member authorities of YPO.
The Framework Agreement is an OJEU* compliant process for government authorities to procure products that cover the provisioning of Telematics’ Street Lighting Control Management Systems (CMS) from June 1, 2016 to May 31, 2020. It covers a wide range of terrains including commercial, urban, and rural environments. The Telematics solution will enable YPO’s customers to manage and control all streetlights on an individual or group basis by providing a reliable and secure two-way radio based communications platform between the lighting nodes and data control units. This facilitates the central control of lighting levels to suit various communities’ lighting requirements and fiscal needs of energy usage across the network. Once implemented, the wireless CMS communications platform enables the integration of machine-to-machine sensors, thus expanding the Smart City network.
“Telematics is committed to working with YPO to provide our field-proven smart lighting solutions to their customers. Our core values of enhancing energy efficiency and driving cost savings are well aligned with YPO’s objective. We welcome the opportunity to work with the local authorities in the UK to bring in our smart city lighting technology to benefit the local communities,” said Eddy Kafry, CEO of Telematics Wireless.
