"Telensa creates wireless smart city control systems, with an emphasis
on smart street light solutions. The company has the most extensive
market presence of any vendor included in the study," said Ryan Citron,
senior research analyst with Navigant research, in the report.

"Telensa is building on the business case for its smart street lighting
by providing cities with an open, low-cost platform to add multiple
sensor applications. For example, the company has deployed a pilot
project in the UK with the Essex and Hertfordshire County Councils to
use the county's lighting networks for a range of smart city
applications. The solutions being demonstrated in the pilot include air
quality monitoring, smart waste, traffic monitoring and analytics."

Navigant Research examined the Strategy and Execution of 14 leading
smart street lighting suppliers with the capacity to play a significant
role in large-scale deployments. These vendors were rated on 10
criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; product strategy;
geographic reach; market presence; sales, marketing, and distribution;
product features and portfolio; product integration; and staying power.

Telensa PLANet is an end-to-end intelligent street lighting system,
consisting of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, a dedicated
wireless network owned by the city, and a central management
application. The system pays for itself in reduced energy and
maintenance costs, improves quality of service through automatic fault
reporting, and enables the aggregation and visualization of sensor data
from multiple networks.

"Away from the inflated claims of the Internet of Things (IoT) market,
Telensa has been steadily enabling cities and utilities to take control
of their assets, save money and deliver better services through data
intelligence," said Will Franks, CEO Telensa. "We're delighted that
Navigant has recognised Telensa's deployment leadership in smart street
light systems."

Telensa is behind the world's largest smart street lighting deployment
in the US, and has been awarded significant new city and regional
projects over the last year, including in Edinburgh, Wellington and Hong
