Huawei, ZTE smart street layout, highlights where exactly?

According to the statistics of The Climate Group, the total number of street lights in the world is approximately 340 million baht, and will reach 352 million baht in 2025. In London, for example, street lighting consumes more than 56 million kilowatt-hours of electricity each year (according to statistics, the street lamp population in London is about 35,000 baht, based on a 400W high-pressure sodium lamp), huge energy costs and artificial inspections. Inspection, management and maintenance costs are huge.

Street lighting is an essential public facility in people's daily lives. It is understood that the current consumption of street lighting in China accounts for about 15% of the total. In the face of power shortages, traditional LED energy-saving can no longer meet the needs of a wide range of energy-saving; and manual control, street lamp inspection is also a work that requires a lot of manpower and material resources. More efficient management tools and energy-saving programs have become the focus of management departments.

Currently, excellent intelligent energy-saving monitoring solutions for LED drive power management and LED lamps are available in the market.

Market pain points

1, manual, light control, clock control: vulnerable to the seasons, weather, natural environment and human factors, often the light is off, the eradication of time, resulting in energy waste and financial burden.

2. Cannot modify switch light time remotely: It is impossible to adjust the switch time according to the actual situation (abrupt change of weather, major events, festivals), or to adjust the time of the switch light.

3, does not have the status monitoring of the street lamp: the failure is based on reports from the patrol personnel and public complaints, lack of initiative, timeliness and reliability, can not be real-time, accurate and comprehensive monitoring of the city's street lighting operation.

4. Ordinary manual inspection: The management department lacks the capability of unified dispatch, and can only be adjusted by one distribution cabinet as a unit. This not only takes time and effort, but also increases the possibility of human misoperation.

5, the device is easy to lose the fault can not be located: can not accurately find the cable to steal, lamp stolen and open circuit, once the above situation will bring enormous economic losses, while affecting the normal life of the public and travel security.

Therefore, outdoor lighting solutions with intelligent management become a hot spot for street lamp management. Here's a look at the differences between smart street lighting solutions and traditional street lighting solutions.

Huawei: On-demand lighting, energy efficiency up to 80%

On March 15, 2016, Huawei announced the industry's first multi-level intelligent control lighting internet of things solution at CeBIT2016 (Hannover Consumer Electronics, Information and Communication Expo, Germany).

The project will integrate urban street lighting into the Internet of Things and conduct visual management based on GIS. The manager can clearly understand the status information of each street block and each street lamp; through the application of flexible lighting strategies, it can be applied to every street lamp. The on-off status and brightness of the lighting are precisely controlled, and on-demand lighting is truly achieved. The energy-saving efficiency is as high as 80%.

Each street light is equipped with a street light controller to control the switch and dimming. Huawei uses 6LoWPAN technology based on IPv6, which features low power consumption, self-discovery, ad hoc networking, and rapid self-healing.

In the control of street lights, the lighting strategy has a set of “combination punches” that can be dynamically adjusted according to different rules, such as brightness sensors, third-party traffic flow, people flow sensors, actual weather and environmental conditions.

For example, when the traffic is scarce at night, the brightness of the street light is turned down and the lights are turned on. In cloudy and rainy weather conditions where light is not good, the lights are turned on according to the perception of brightness.

Highlights of the project

1. Visualized management, online inspection of street lights, unclear understanding of failures

The program adopts GIS-based visual management. A single person can manage thousands of street lights in multiple blocks, and the number of street lights, street lights, installation positions, and installation time of each block can be seen at a glance.

2, multi-level intelligent control, multi-level protection, more reliable

Traditional street lamps generally adopt a centralized control method and cannot accurately control a single street lamp. Multi-level intelligent control minimizes the dependence of street lights on the control network.

3, multi-level open, draw a blueprint for smart cities

The low-level control chip can be developed based on the open source lightweight operating system Liteos. Devices of different manufacturers can interact with each other; realize comprehensive linkage with intelligent traffic, environmental monitoring, and urban governance, and provide first-hand big data for municipal management.

ZTE "Blue Pillar" Smart Street Lighting Solution

The "Blue Pillar" smart street lighting scheme consists of ZTE's BlueBox smart charging pile, 4G iMacro new concept base station, smart control box, and intelligent street lamp, which realizes the integration of hardware solutions and products for multiple tasks.

It is not only a 4G/5G base station, but also a charging point for electric vehicles. At the same time, it can collect comprehensive information on cities such as weather, environment, traffic, and security. Large-screen outdoor LED screens can also provide convenience information and be used for advertising operations.

Making full use of street lamp pole resources and integrating it into the surrounding environment is highly concealed. It not only solves the difficult problem of 4G network location selection, but also constructs WIFI hotspots, urban environment monitoring, security management, and hot zone area numbers for governments and operators. Statistics provide guarantees, and can provide targeted advertising, municipal information and other value-added services.

Sites have lower unit costs and higher site traffic density. It helps operators to acquire site resources while saving more land, saving electricity, and saving resources. The government, operators, citizens, car owners and other parties benefited from it. The operator's business area has also expanded, and the transition from communications operations to integrated urban service operations has taken place.

Focusing on the increasingly demanding and potential market for green energy promotion, electric vehicle charging, and vehicle networking in the future, the “BluePillar” smart street lighting scheme skillfully integrates base stations, light poles, and charging piles into one. One-time rapid deployment provides a convenient solution for the tower and other operating companies. It not only solves road and residential coverage problems, but also allows the information exchange of street lamps through the base station to follow wisdom and integrate into the Internet of Everything.

success case

BluePillar is ZTE’s first in the industry to deeply grasp the needs of the three major operators and Tower Corporation for future shared development and business development. It is the first to launch a one-stop rapid deployment of base stations, light poles, and charging piles. Tower Company provides a convenient solution that not only solves road and residential coverage problems, but also allows the information exchange of street lamps through the base station to follow wisdom and integrate into the Internet of Everything. The pilot program was completed and started operations in Shenzhen in early February.
