Outdoor Lighting Applications

 

Interoperability in outdoor lighting networks

Controllable Outdoor Lighting Networks are already used in many countries. The systems consist of a central computer/server or Central Management System (CMS), and networks of connected light points, the so-called Outdoor Lighting Networks (OLN), that can be controlled by the CMS.

Some manufacturers have developed their own proprietary technologies while others are using similar protocols. Interoperability between systems and system components of different brands is required to enable municipalities to benefit from systems from various manufacturers. See picture below.
