BEDFORD, Mass., April 11, 2019 – CIMCON Lighting, the leading global provider of outdoor lighting management systems and smart city technologies, today announced that its NearSky smart city platform received the top award in the Internet of Things (IoT) category at the 2019 Edison Awards™ . The Edison Awards, which recognizes and honors the world’s best in innovators and innovations, announced the result at the Edison Awards Gala held on April 4, 2019 in New York City.

The award is one of the most prestigious accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business.  CIMCON received the award based on the assessment of the Edison Awards Steering Committee and a judging panel of more than 3,000 leading business executives including past award winners, academics and leaders in the fields of product development, design, engineering, science and medical.

The NearSky smart city platform converts a city’s existing streetlight infrastructure into a city-wide digital canopy that allows cities to deploy smart technologies to reduce operating costs, stimulate jobs or economic activity, and improve the lives of city residents. The platform consists of the NearSky 360 edge data processor, which simplifies the deployment of a wide range of sensors, controls, and devices on or near the light pole, and NearSky StreetVibe, a cloud-based information hub that enables municipalities to easily aggregate, visualize, and analyze data from a single location. Cities, utilities, and energy service companies (ESCOs) can arrange a pilot of NearSky by visiting https://www.cimconlighting.com/streetvantage-smart-city-pilot-program.
