Global reseller agreement includes lighting solutions and embedded industrial Internet of Things products
Echelon and Allied Telesis have entered into an agreement to deliver smart city solutions. Allied Telesis is able to incorporate Echelon’s intelligent lighting technology into its smart cities and campuses and the company’s Internet of Things (IoT) products into its projects requiring building automation and controls.
Echelon’s intelligent lighting solutions include the new LumInsight 2 Cloud Central management system, and LumInsight IoT base stations. These next generation products turn LED streetlight retrofits into 21st century smart city networks capable of fine-tuned control and can form the basis for future smart city applications.
Echelon’s has also announced SmartServer IoT, which claims to be the first edge server to incorporate the most common industrial device protocols. This allows existing and new networks of such devices to seamlessly connect to the cloud and make their data available for use by modern analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) engines.
With Echelon’s embedded architecture, customers can easily and cost-effectively embrace, extend and enhance existing IIoT installations to avoid costly ’rip and replace’ projects.
Echelon’s installed base of more than 140 million embedded controls around the world offers the potential for companies like Allied Telesis to provide a new range of solutions to customers. “Echelon’s abilities to embrace, extend and enhance existing networks of control devices will enable us to provide additional value to our customers," according to Taki Oshima, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Allied Telesis.
