London Connects Another E40 Corn Street Lights To Wireless Mesh Controls

London is connecting another 28,000 LED Corn street lights E40 to wireless mesh controls based on Internet protocols, using a system provided by Silver Spring Networks.

Silver Spring said London's financial district, known as the City of London, as well as the Borough of Barking and Dagenham in the city's northeast, will now control street lights remotely using the company's Starfish mesh network. The City of Westminster, another London borough, has already been using Starfish.

The mesh topology treats street lights as nodes in a network, allowing lights to relay information to each other and thus ease the process of remotely powering on/off and adjusting their brightness. It also helps to monitor the performance of each light, cutting down on maintenance costs.

Wireless mesh technology has grabbed lighting headlines recently because the Bluetooth Special Interest Group last month issued a long awaited standard for meshing Bluetooth devices including LED lights.

But Bluetooth is not the only mesh game in town. For example, Holland's Chess Wise is installing its proprietary Myria Mesh wireless controls at a large chemical plant.

Silver Spring's Starfish mesh is based on the IEEE 802.154g standard — also known as Wi-SUN for wireless smart utility network — and uses the IPv6 Internet Protocol.
