Zyter, Inc., a leading IoT-enablement platform, announced today it has formed a strategic partnership with Juganu, an Israel-based, smart infrastructure company. Under the terms of the agreement, Zyter will leverage Juganu’s smart lighting solutions and network connectivity framework on future smart campus and smart city implementations worldwide.
In a smart city deployment, smart lighting enables connected light sources and IoT-enabled sensors to be controlled through a single management dashboard or even a smartphone. The integration of Zyter’s IoT platform and command center with Juganu’s connected lighting solutions platform, and sensors provide a bird’s eye view of what’s happening in a city. When deployed on city streets, Juganu's network connectivity framework allows municipalities to provide public Wi-Fi and data-driven insights to develop people-centered cities and spaces. In the case of emergency events, automated alerts are sent to a dashboard for fast resolution by city administrators.
Trusted by Qualcomm® to be the foundation of its Smart Cities Accelerator Program, Zyter SmartSpaces is an Internet of Things (IoT) platform that breaks down silos of information by integrating and consolidating data from IoT devices and applications. The platform also provides complete visibility of what is happening across an entire network of connected devices and sensors, supported by advanced analytics.
