Signify’s BrightSites: 5G Smart Poles

The digital transformation of public spaces is accelerating rapidly, with wireless broadband being introduced within neighborhoods and city centers everywhere. Brightsites Smart Poles help cities provide high-speed broadband, allowing for non-stop access to the internet.

Smart Poles can be installed in dense urban areas, college campuses, and residential neighborhoods

In addition to providing a network of broadband to residents, businesses and visitors to the city, BrightSites Smart Poles help cities leverage technologies to deploy sensors and devices for smarter, more sustainable, and efficient operations. Plus, BrightSites poles offer high-quality, low-energy LED lighting.

BrightSites Smart Poles offer a range of significant services and capabilities:

  • Sensors to provide immediate environmental monitoring, such as air quality, noise and incident detection, collecting data to support future enhancements
  • Cameras to observe road conditions to help improve traffic flows, guide maintenance decisions and emergency crew deployment
  • Smart Microphones equipped to recognize noises associated with anti-social behavior (shouting, car alarms, breaking glass, or even gunshots). They then automatically brighten the light to an area, record audio and alert emergency services
  • Display Screens to offer important emergency messaging, as well as act as a revenue generator as targeted advertising boards

Smart Poles offer 4G, 5G and other digital modes, as well as provide efficient LED lighting

BrightSites Smart Poles offer additional benefits:

  • Elegant, Multi-Functional Design: BrightSites Smart Poles are available in various heights, colors, and styles
  • Easy Deployment and Scalability: Mobile operators can deploy dozens or hundreds of cell sites quickly and easily, to provide additional amplified coverage
  • Digital pathway: BrightSites poles deliver 4G/5G, Wi-Fi, LoRa, Sigfox, fiber hubs, and a possibility to accommodate a wide range of IoT applications
  • Energy Efficiency: Philips LED lighting provides a cost-effective, low-maintenance alternative to traditional street lighting

Smart Poles can be configured to provide city information (such as available parking spaces as shown)
or advertising, a potential revenue source for many cities

Signify Ledalite: Eyeline Luminaires

New from Signify Ledalite: Eyeline Suspended and Wall Mount Luminaires. From the creative minds of Signify Ledalite comes the all-new EyeLine Luminaire, designed to make a statement.

Stylishly sophisticated, boldly dramatic.

The EyeLine suspended and wall mount luminaire establishes itself as the standalone statement for any architectural application. The aerodynamic weightless appearance is made possible with its unique extruded aluminum tapered wings and open center. Though visually stunning, the EyeLine luminaire is more than a pretty face. Its ultra-thin light panels consist of a high-performance optical system designed to maximize output with low-glare comfort.

The optical system is comprised of an array of LEDs edge-lighting a low-profile light-guide panel for perfectly even illumination. MesoOptics purify and control the light as it is extracted from the light-guide to provide a wide distribution with low-glare for optimal spacing and energy savings.

Make your room the view. Make your space the destination.

EyeLine imparts a dramatic environment to any application. Office spaces instantly feel polished and refined. Hospitality or lounge areas exude sophistication. Meeting spaces seem purposeful.

Designed to stand out in a crowd or emanate subtle sophistication, the EyeLine comes with standard powder coating options in white, black, and gray, as well as a red high-gloss automotive finish option.

The new linear luminaire was constructed to use as few driver pods and power drops as possible for continuous rows, and can be specified in any row length, in 4ft increments. Continuous row mounting is an easy plug and play installation to ensure a quick and painless installation for contractors, and continuity for designers.

More Eyeline Facts:

  • Lumen Packages: 3400lm, 4800lm 6800lm
  • Color temperature & CRI: 3000K/80CRI, 3500K/80CRI, 4000K/80CRI, 4000K/90CRI
