RICHARDSON, TX, Feb 5, 2019 – Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. announced an expansion of its Internet of Things (IoT) technology platform which will enable the rapid development and deployment of smart utility applications. With the addition of new ecosystem partners ClearWorld and GreenStar, this powerful platform of tools and technologies includes solutions for integrated smart lighting and smart energy resilience.
As utilities strive to improve efficiencies, cut costs and expand revenue, the adoption of new approaches and advanced technologies continues to accelerate. The result is a prevailing trend to embrace alternative energy sources and reduce carbon footprint while introducing IoT innovations. Fujitsu is empowering utilities and communities to leverage these advanced technologies with an integrated ecosystem of technology vendors, offering simplicity, cost savings and convenience with best-in-class smart utility solutions including GreenStar world-class LED-based luminaires and ClearWorld solar energy systems in a complete IoT platform.
“Digital transformation, renewable energy and carbon reduction offer both challenges and opportunities for tomorrow’s energy sector. Fujitsu and our partners deliver the expertise, support and efficiencies to enable utilities to be at the forefront of these trends for maximum advantage,” said Robert Worden, North America practice leader, Smart Cities/IoT at Fujitsu Network Communications. “Utilities and other network operators rely on Fujitsu as their full-service integration partner to understand their needs and co-create a complete, cost-effective solution that makes every step the right step, from beginning to end, and beyond.”
“We have the ability to provide the foundation for every smart city with resilient and renewable solar power and battery storage, mounted on existing or new light poles,” said Larry Tittle, founder and chief executive officer at ClearWorld. “Our off-grid application can save up to 70 percent in energy costs, offering long-distance back-up power for critical infrastructure and municipalities.”
“We are proud to be an American manufacturer of high-quality LED luminaires,” said James McVey, director of sales and marketing at GreenStar. “With over one million luminaires installed around the globe, GreenStar has become a brand that is recognized for its quality and durability.”
In addition to reducing costs, today’s smart technology solutions provide real-time analytics for better business decisions, improved operational efficiencies, enhanced customer service and new revenue opportunities.
