Guancheng Applies the Internet of Things Model to a Citywide Street Lighting Retrofit

"Smart City"- based intelligent outdoor lighting has become the most ideal platform to realize "Smart City" with its wide coverage, strong extensibility and good stability. As the biggest "Internet of Things Intelligent Street lighting Solution" provider, Guangdong Rongwen retrofitted the street lighting system of the district of Guancheng in Dongguan, China as part of a larger initiative of creating intelligent, efficient and low-carbon city management solution. Leading the upgrade, the Dongguan Guancheng Utility Service Center was tasked with replacing nearly 12,500 street and alley lights while integrating an intelligent control system that communicates with the greater city management system.

With the assistance of Guangdong Rongwen Energy Science and Technology Group Co., Ltd. (Rongwen), the Utility Service Center will apply the "Internet of Things" model—where all hardware, software and services are identified, integrated and efficiently managed—to modernize a community that will realize energy savings of up to 70 percent while increasing public safety and security.
