CIMCON and Syracuse Head to LIGHTFAIR 2019 to Show How Smart City Technologies, Lighting, and Data are Transforming Cities

Educational program will highlight How Syracuse is using lighting to surge the city forward

PHILADELPHIA, PA., May 21 2019 – CIMCON transforms a city's streetlight infrastructure into a robust Internet of Municipal Things (IoMT) that can enable digitized city services. Attend our educational presentation with Syracuse on May 21 and visit CIMCON at LIGHTFAIR® International 2019 in Philadelphia to learn more. We will also be sharing several new customer stories and product innovations at the event.

WHO:

CIMCON, the leading global provider of outdoor lighting management systems and smart city technologies, and the city of Syracuse will be featured speakers and an exhibitor at LIGHTFAIR International 2019, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.

WHAT: 

Rebecca Klossner, from the city planning division in Syracuse, will be presenting, “Using Lighting to Surge Syracuse, NY Forward” at LIGHTFAIR. This will describe the city’s approach to implementing an IoMT model and the benefits of digitizing their city. Session Code: L19EP2

WHEN: 

Presentation of Syracuse smart city approach “Using Lighting to Surge Syracuse, NY Forward” - May 21, 4-4:45 p.m. ET

  • Booth Space: Visit CIMCON in Booth #3841 at LIGHTFAIR 2019, May 21-23

WHY:

Syracuse is deploying smart lighting and a number of other smart city applications, such as traffic counting, flood sensing, and air quality monitoring, as part of their plan to transform the city from impoverished to growing. Syracuse seeks to become New York's flagship smart city - and teach municipalities how to innovate, implement and advance.

Here are three additional reasons to meet up at LIGHTFAIR:

  • Attend our “LFI Live” session to learn how the city of Syracuse is using intelligent lighting to fuel their Syracuse Surge.
  • Visit our booth to see several new smart city applications, including public safety monitoring, flood detection, noise/gunshot detection, traffic analytics, and air quality monitoring. You’ll learn how they can improve the quality of life in your city too.
  • Learn about some exciting announcements about lighting and smart city pilots in the Philadelphia region. You’ll be able to see our products in use in the real world.

CIMCON’s NearSky™ smart city platform is leading the way in helping cities digitize their infrastructure to simplify the deployment of sensors and devices, and acquire and analyze the data needed to improve city operations.

“My session with CIMCON will detail how a combined smart street lighting and smart city project can help a city spur growth,” said Rebecca Klossner, Syracuse’s city planning office. “Our work with CIMCON and other partners will show how a city can initiate a smart city initiative the moment that they return from this exciting event.”

NOTE: Media are invited to attend and arrange meetings with Rebecca and CIMCON executives.
