Telematics Galaxy Network to be deployed Throughout Georgia
AUSTIN, Texas, May 21, 2019 — Telematics Wireless, a leader in smart city networks and control applications, has announced that Georgia Power, a Southern Company, has selected its T-Light Galaxy platform to control and monitor part of more than 900,000 street and area lights throughout the state of Georgia. Under the current initial agreement, the Telematics solution will provide network coverage to several counties and metro areas and will control approximately 50,000 lights.
Georgia Power chose the Telematics T-Light Galaxy system, a highly robust wireless star network operating on FCC licensed frequency bands that provides wide area network coverage with minimal infrastructure costs. According to Jessica Tolley, Georgia Power’s LED Roadway Manager, “The base station to Networked Lighting Controller (NLC) ratio with the T-Galaxy System was very appealing and weighed heavily in Georgia Power’s decision to install Telematics NLCs.”
The T-Light Galaxy system will remotely monitor and control street and area lights and provide built in revenue grade metering for time of use billing. The system will provide real time data to Georgia Power for proactive maintenance, outage management, and billing. Additionally, the system will help Georgia Power to ensure that the lights are operating as expected, saving energy, increasing public safety, and improving customer satisfaction.
“We are proud that Georgia Power has recognized that Telematics Wireless is the leading technology solution provider and that our T-Light Galaxy network is the right choice to address their needs,” said Amir Hirsch, head of Business Development at Telematics Wireless for North America. “The T-Light Galaxy smart city platform will help to reduce energy usage and ensure public safety.”
The T-Light Street Light Control networks and Telematics smart city capabilities will be on showcase at LIGHTFAIR International 2019 from May 21 to 23, 2019, Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia (booth no. 3739).
