Cisco and Sensity Systems, a company that provides Light Sensory Networks (LSN), have entered into a strategic relationship to utilize Sensity’s NetSense platform as a foundation for Cisco’s City Infrastructure Management (CIM) software. As part of the agreement, Cisco joins Sensity’s NetSense Partner Program to create a joint solution that will convert city lighting infrastructure into a distributed sensing platform for Smart City applications, such as smart parking, lighting, retail analytics, and public safety and security.
The companies’ joint solution utilizes Sensity’s sensor nodes, integrated into Cisco’s City Infrastructure Management (CIM) software. It seamlessly embeds sensors—including video sensors with analytics—within LED lighting infrastructure. The data from Light Sensory Network is exposed through Cisco’s CIM APIs.
