The company now provides intelligent lighting control to 23 towns and cities across Poland and the Czech Republic with a total population of 250,000 citizens.
Networked streetlight provider Telensa has announced it has extended its Central European footprint with its latest smart streetlight deployment in Poland.
The company now provides intelligent lighting control to 23 towns and cities across Poland and the Czech Republic with a total population of 250,000 citizens. The wirelessly connected streetlights are individually managed from Telensa’s central management system (CMS).
Telensa’s latest project is to upgrade the streetlights for the administrative district of Piecki located in Mrągowo County in the province of Warmian-Masuria, Northern Poland. Telensa’s Polish partner, Enis, will bring wireless connectivity to the streetlights in Piecki and connect them into its managed service platform which it will operate on the municipality’s behalf.
According to Telensa, Enis is helping municipalities across Poland with building streetlight inventories, modernising their systems, helping secure funds, as well as managing the upgrade project from end-to-end.
The European Commission estimates that on average, city governments spend between 30 and 50 per cent of their energy costs on streetlighting, and Telensa reports its own experience of working with local government around the world shows those bills could be cut in half if cities transition to smart streetlamps with LED bulbs.
“Smaller, local governments are looking for cost optimisation in the effective use of energy and in the maintenance of streetlighting,” said Arkadiusz Okruta, president of Enis Solutions.
“The reliability and stability of Telensa PLANet’s operation enables Enis Solutions to support local governments without the need for an extensive service department. We can focus on advising local governments how to effectively use their resources.”
Telensa’s PLANet connected street lighting system consists of wireless control nodes (telecells), a dedicated low power wide area wireless network (LPWAN) and a CMS.

As street lighting owners and operators around the world make the transition from legacy sodium lighting to LED, Telensa claims PLANet adds value by helping to optimise the energy and maintenance improvements that come with LED street lighting. As a result, whole populations of streetlights can be managed entirely from the desktop, the company said.
“It’s not just cities and large urban environments that are able to use networked LED streetlights to save money, reduce their carbon footprints and improve energy efficiency,” added Brent Hudson, CEO of Telensa.
“Telensa’s managed service model works well for smaller town and villages keen to move to smart lighting controls.”
Telensa was recently confirmed as the world’s leading provider of smart streetlighting by independent analyst company, Northeast Group.
