According to a recent release, Itron, working on the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, has signed a global reseller agreement with TerraGo Technologies, which provides customizable field applications for smart cities and utilities. Together, the two companies said they will offer Streetlight.Vision:GO, an Itron-branded version of TerraGo’s streetlight management solution, which includes a suite of mobile and cloud-based applications for iOS, Android and web.
Designed specifically for smart streetlight projects, SLV:GO reportedly provides planning, installation and maintenance tools that can help communities deploy and manage Itron’s Intelligent Street lighting solution. SLV has been chosen by more than 500 communities to control more than 3 million intelligent devices worldwide.
Bundling TerraGo’s streetlight management software with Itron’s SLV solution enables customers to accelerate deployment times, enhance operational efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. By providing full-lifecycle management, SLV:GO can significantly improve performance, compress schedules and reduce expenses at every stage. With SLV:GO, data integrity is consistently maintained using real-time validation, location-based verification and other quality controls to ensure asset data elements are integrated, captured and tracked correctly on the right streetlight poles and fixtures. Streamlining the deployment process enables communities to realize their smart city goals with improved energy savings and enhanced return on investment. Customers have already successfully deployed the combined solution to realize smart city benefits for their communities.
“Providing dramatic energy savings, intelligent streetlights enable cities and utilities to unlock efficiencies while building a foundation for smart city services,” Itai Dadon, director, smart cities and IoT, Itron. “By bundling TerraGo’s solution with SLV, we can accelerate smart street lighting deployments to realize benefits faster and make the smart city network available sooner.”
