Wipro Lighting becomes Cisco Digital Building solutions provider for connected lighting

Cisco India Daisy ChittilapillyWipro Lighting has become a Cisco Digital Building Solutions provider for connected lighting. This collaboration brings together Wipro’s Smart & Connected Lighting systems and Cisco Digital Building Solutions that link various building services through a single, converged IP network.

This will enable Wipro Lighting to simplify convergence of its lighting solutions with building automation systems over IP without compromising lighting efficiency, maintenance, product life and security.

This effort is aimed at helping corporate real estate managers and facilities heads deliver better user experience, save on energy and operating expenses as well as reap the benefit of Internet of Things (IoT) in workspaces.

Wipro Lighting’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) based solutions leverage the Cisco Digital Building Solutions framework to create flexible lighting solutions for modern workspaces. These new connected lighting solutions will simplify the deployment experience, lower total cost of ownership, offer pre-validated architecture and ecosystem integration among players.

The Cisco Digital Building Solutions framework will allow building managers to extend the benefits of the IoT throughout their facilities by converging multiple building networks including lighting, heating, cooling, IP video, IoT sensors and more through a highly secure and intelligent network platform.

“Lighting is one of the best ways to bring the Internet of Things to office buildings. Smart and secure lighting will form the backbone of the smart office of the future,” said Daisy Chittilapilly, managing director, Partner Organization, Cisco India and SAARC.

Wipro Lighting, in cooperation with Cisco, is charting a new course for smart and connected applications with PoE based lighting solutions.

Wipro Lighting is one of the first Indian companies to join the Digital Building Solutions ecosystem with Cisco for PoE based lighting solutions. Wipro unveiled and showcased its smart and connected lighting solutions at Cisco Live in July, 2017.
