BOSTON, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CIMCON Lighting, the leading global provider of Intelligent Lighting and Smart City technologies, today announced the launch of its NearSky™ platform and NearSky™ 360 product line. The NearSky™ platform brings the "Internet of Outdoor Things" within a city's reach by enabling a myriad of devices, sensors, and applications across a broad range of citywide and smart grid networks to further realize the vision of a true Smart City.
Smart lighting is the gateway application to the Smart and Connected City. The NearSky™ platform helps cities and utilities monitor, meter, manage and monetize the streetlight and other assets affixed to the streetlight pole and those located near the pole.

CIMCON's NearSky™ 360 accelerates a city's evolution to "smart" by providing a sturdy, scalable backbone for city data from sensors, controls and devices on or near any streetlight pole. A simple "plug and play" installation enables NearSky™ 360 to easily capture, aggregate and communicate sensor data from a variety of devices in a variety of Smart City and AMI networks. NearSky™ 360 also provides external power and communication interfaces, metering for billing or chargeback and edge processing for these devices.
"Our NearSky™ platform and NearSky™ 360 product family continues CIMCON's proud heritage of technology innovation," said Anil Agrawal, CEO, CIMCON Lighting. "NearSky™ provides a city with true insight into its operations and the capability to quickly make changes that will further increase operational efficiency, reduce energy costs, protect the environment, improve public safety, and ultimately improve the quality of life for residents."
