LonMark International will present the "LonMark Open Smart Streetlight" booth at the next international Light Building show in Frankfurt, Germany, March 13-18, 2016. The LonMark International booth will highlight the only open and interoperable Smart Streetlight solution on the market. It will showcase outdoor light point controllers from eight different LonMark-certified vendors, all connected to the same powerline network, managed by a single Central Management Software platform from Streetlight.Vision.

The following LonMark member companies will be co-exhibiting: Adic, Amko, Apanet, Citylone, Devtech M2M, Echelon, Flashnet, Streetlight.Vision and Vossloh Schwabe. This unique demonstration of interoperability will show how to reduce costs, while enhancing outdoor lighting services in a city by controlling each outdoor lighting asset with light point controllers, networked together on an open communication platform. Light point controllers tested and certified by LonMark International are interoperable, giving the ability to purchase light point controllers from multiple suppliers and mixing them in the field. Unlike other standards that try to unify proprietary systems in single Central Management Software, the open, standard-based approach from LonMark enables to mix devices from multiple suppliers on standardized field networks, the best solution for cities that cannot afford to continue purchasing proprietary control systems.
