Smarter data and service management for truly Open Cities

We are pleased to announce new Neptune generation of our PE Smart Urban Network solution, providing an interoperable, scalable management platform to fully control streetlights, parking facilities, sensor-based applications and other urban services in an Open City perspective.

First launched in 2011, PE Smart Urban Network marked a breakthrough for Smart Cities, offering a single, unified infrastructure to manage both multi-sensor Wireless Internet of Things (IoT) applications such as streetlight management, parking management, smart metering, etc., and Wireless Highspeed IoT services such as pervasive WiFi, video surveillance and other high-bandwidth applications.

The Neptune generation enhances PE Smart Urban Network’s flexibility and interoperability, and enables Open Cities to design and implement a non-proprietary infrastructure to manage multiple services at once, allowing seamless integration of third party systems and devices.

Moreover, the Neptune generation offers City managers higher efficiency and greater quality in operating key urban services, with improved decision making and quicker return on investment. Leveraging data generated by connected objects and sensors, City managers can reduce power consumption and GHG emissions of streetlights up to 80%, increase parking facilities usage and reduce traffic congestion up to 30%, make Cities more agreeable, liveable and safer, while fostering local economy through the development and delivery of new applications and services.

The Neptune generation of PE Smart Urban Network includes new software and hardware:

  • PE Smart CMS Neptune, the open and extensible management software platform providing full feature monitoring and control of streetlights, parking lots and any connected IoT device through intuitive web applications;
  • PE Smart Lighting Nodes Neptune – NEMA version, supporting 3, 5 and 7-pin NEMA twist-lock sockets. Connected to any existing or new LED streetlight, these IPv6 hardware radio devices allow full remote control of luminaires;
  • PE Smart Lighting Nodes Neptune – Zhaga version, acting as IPv6 controllers of luminaire systems and providing a plug-and-play extension module based on standardized DALI2 protocol and specified power supply;
  • PE Smart Gateway Neptune, natively managing IPv6 and IPv4 network technologies, operating as device and network coordinator, and data concentrator of the wireless mesh PE Smart Urban Network.
