Setting an intelligent standard for Smart Cities

Why TALQ for outdoor lighting

The TALQ Consortium aims to establish a globally accepted standard for management software interfaces to configure, command,  control and monitor heterogeneous outdoor device networks including street lighting.

This way interoperability between Central Management Software (CMS) and Outdoor Device Networks (ODN) for several Smart City Applications  from different vendors will be enabled, such that a single CMS can control different ODNs in different parts of a city or region.

TALQ accelerates the introduction of networked Smart City Solutions with a large variety of benefits for cities like:

  • Multi-vendor choice
  • Open platform for innovation
  • Common language for different Smart City Applications
  • Increasing cost efficiency
  • Faster introduction of LED luminaires in road and urban lighting
  • Reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions worldwide
  • Professionalization of operations management
  • Cross-departmental cooperation

The new TALQ interface is a specification for information exchange, suitable for implementation in various products and systems. That’s why the approach fosters competition and will help to grow the market for the benefit of the users and the environment.
