The challenge with the city of Paris was to improve multiple city services and as a hub for smart city innovation, Paris has committed to reduce public lighting energy consumption.

The city of Paris and its residents.

The approach: » INTEGRATED SMART STREET LIGHTING AND TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROL – deploying a citywide canopy network connecting cabinet-based controllers for more than 200,000 street and traffic lights across the city. » IPv6-BASED MULTI-APPLICATION NETWORK – creating a platform for future services such as traffic management, environmental sensors, smart parking, electric vehicle charging, electricity metering, and water conservation. » PROJECT PILOT – quickly demonstrating improved lighting efficiencies by starting with a tightly scoped city initiative.

Mature (technology has been on the market for > 5 years)

Allows addition of new applications and city services to the city's network.

Using Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) deployment to network devices and applications, lowers capital expense, creates predictable operating costs, and allows multiple departments to easily leverage the same network through a predictable yearly fee.


With networked LED street lighting, major cities such as Paris can save up to 70 percent on energy costs in the new deployments.

Paris has committed to reduce public lighting energy consumption by 30 percent over the next 10 years while ensuring quality lighting for residents.
