Cleveland Adopts Streetlight Control Network from ST

By Ken Briodagh September 23, 2019

According to a recent announcement, Cleveland, Ohio has adopted the T-Light Galaxy Network from ST Engineering Telematics Wireless to manage the city’s 61,000 streetlights and better serve its citizens. Cleveland Public Power, a city-owned utility, deployed the T-Light Galaxy communications infrastructure in just three business days, using FCC licensed frequencies to ensure the system is both secure and reliable, the city said.

“This digital transformation of our streetlights fulfils a key component of the Safe, Smart CLE Project launched earlier this year,” said Ivan Henderson, Public Power Commissioner, Cleveland. “Not only does the Telematics Wireless system enable us to control and manage our streetlight operations far more efficiently and cost-effectively, it also provides Cleveland the backbone for more advanced, future-ready Smart City applications like the high-definition images and our police department’s remote control of streetlights that can be dimmed or brightened throughout the city.”

The project combines the conversion of all streetlights in the city to LED with the ST Engineering Telematics Wireless networked lighting control system and 1,000 cameras that are operated by the Cleveland Police Department.

In the Cleveland installation, the T-Light Galaxy platform reportedly functions as a wide-area communications network. The end-to-end solution provides a web accessible application software, BrightCity, with 61,000 individual networked lighting controllers for each streetlight’s operation. The system is designed to enable Cleveland to set different light intensity for residential, commercial and industrial locations, pre-program schedules for routine and real-time management of special conditions, and proactively manage maintenance support.

“Cleveland’s adoption and installation of the T-Light Galaxy streetlight control system is ultimately part of a bold statement from one of the country’s premier smart cities,” said Amir Hirsch, Business Development, ST Engineering Telematics Wireless. “It demonstrates a genuine commitment to visionary leadership, service, sustainability and cost containment for all the city’s citizens.”

For the Cleveland project, ST Engineering Telematics Wireless installed three gateways to cover the entire city’s network of streetlights, and a fourth gateway is planned for city-wide redundant coverage. The city said it plans to test other smart devices in the near future.
