Telensa, a supplier of smart streetlight controls and smart city applications, and Eaton Lighting, an LED lighting solutions provider, have agreed to work together to deliver connected solutions for outdoor LED lighting and related smart city applications.

“The outdoor lighting controls market is fragmented, with many vendors having a limited deployment footprint. We know the industry is looking for resilient turnkey solutions that are proven at scale and with the largest city and utility lighting networks, which is why we are excited to join forces with Eaton Lighting as smart LED street lighting enters the mainstream,” said Will Gibson, Founder and Chief Commercial Officer at Telensa, in a statement. “By combining our companies’ proven leadership in LEDs and smart controls, we will accelerate the path to smart cities driven by streetlight infrastructure.”

Both companies hope to develop and implement integrated lighting, control and smart city solutions that are easy to deploy, massively scalable and offer long-term value to utilities, cities and transportation departments.
