City of Syracuse Chooses CIMCON, Presidio, and Cisco for Smart City Project

By Ken Briodagh

CIMCON, a provider of smart city solutions including outdoor lighting management systems, recently announced that the New York Power Authority (NYPA) and the City of Syracuse have selected CIMCON's intelligent lighting controls to be installed on 17,500 new streetlights throughout the city. The initiative is designed to improve lighting for Syracuse, help the city achieve fiscal sustainability and give the city a platform to achieve its vision of becoming a growing, more prosperous city.

As the first component of Syracuse Surge, an economic growth and neighborhood revitalization plan, Syracuse has selected CIMCON, Presidio, and Cisco to implement the new streetlight infrastructure. The new streetlights will advance the city's mission of being a smart city by leveraging technology to improve the local economy and create new opportunities for all citizens. Purchased in partnership with NYPA, the new streetlights are anticipated to deliver more than $3 million in annual savings through maintenance and energy efficiencies and bring the city closer to fiscal sustainability. In addition, they are expected to provide better quality light, reduce the need for citizens to report outages, and improve lighting for the city's first responders, the release said.

“This smart investment immediately helps us achieve our vision of creating a growing city that embraces diversity and creates opportunity for all,” said Ben Walsh, Mayor, Syracuse. “The partnership with CIMCON, Presidio, and Cisco will advance our economy and create opportunity for all of our residents, helping Syracuse surge forward as the flagship smart city in New York State.”

CIMCON's intelligent controls connected to its central management system, LightingGale will enable the city to proactively manage, monitor and maintain the new street lights to deliver the proper amount of lighting when and where needed, providing an increased level of safety for residents, while conserving energy. Improved monitoring and management of the city's streetlight infrastructure will enable proactive repairs and reduced maintenance costs, further improving public safety and livability, while encouraging fiscal sustainability.
