Silver Spring Networks announced that it will deploy its Starfish smart lighting platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering across the City of London and the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham. The company previously announced a London deployment in the City of Westminster. Through urbancontrol, Silver Spring’s Starfish is expected to connect approximately 12,000 smart lighting sites in the City of London and 15,500 smart street lights in the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham. Starfish is based on Silver Spring’s wireless network and data platform, built on the Wi-SUN internet of things mesh technology specification. Silver Spring’s platform was selected to provide full coverage in the dense urban setting of the City of London, including streets, lanes and alleyways where cellular technology is unavailable.
