Wipro and Cisco’s collaboration will deliver PoE-based lighting solutions to simplify convergence of its lighting solutions with building automation systems over IP without compromising lighting efficiency, maintenance, product life and security.
Wipro Lighting, the market leader in LED Lighting Solutions today announced that it has become a Cisco Digital Building Solutions provider for connected lighting. This collaboration brings together Wipro’s industry leading Smart & Connected Lighting systems and Cisco® Digital Building Solutions that link various building services through a single, converged IP network. This will enable Wipro Lighting to simplify convergence of its lighting solutions with building automation systems over IP without compromising lighting efficiency, maintenance, product life and security.
A common goal of facilities managers worldwide is to run their buildings with high service levels, while delivering cost savings and environmental benefits through reduced power consumption. This joint effort is aimed at helping corporate real estate managers and facilities heads deliver better user experience, save on energy and operating expenses as well as reap the benefit of Internet of Things (IoT) in workspaces.
Wipro Lighting’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) based solutions leverage the Cisco Digital Building Solutions framework to create bespoke and flexible lighting solutions for modern workspaces. These new connected lighting solutions will greatly simplify the deployment experience, lower total cost of ownership, offer pre-validated architecture and ecosystem integration among players. As next steps, the Cisco Digital Building Solutions framework will allow building managers to extend the benefits of the IoT throughout their facilities by converging multiple building networks including lighting, heating, cooling, IP video, IoT sensors and more through a highly secure and intelligent network platform.
Commenting on Wipro Lighting’s collaboration with Cisco for Digital Building Solutions framework, Anuj Dhir, Vice President & Business Head, Wipro Lighting said, “Design & Innovation is a way of life at Wipro. With the emergence of the IoT and big data, smart and connected digital lighting is the way forward as it’ll bring intelligence & functionality into lighting systems.”
Wipro Lighting is one of the first Indian company to join the Digital Building Solutions ecosystem with Cisco for PoE based lighting solutions. Wipro unveiled and showcased its smart and connected lighting solutions at Cisco Live in July, 2017. It has now started offering these solutions in the Indian market.
