CIMCON's NearSky™ 360 accelerates a city's evolution to "smart" by providing a sturdy, scalable backbone for city data from sensors, controls and devices on or near any streetlight pole. A simple "plug and play" installation enables NearSky™ 360 to easily capture, aggregate and communicate sensor data from a variety of devices in a variety of Smart City and AMI networks. NearSky™ 360 also provides external power and communication interfaces, metering for billing or chargeback and edge processing for these devices.

"Our NearSky™ platform and NearSky™ 360 product family continues CIMCON's proud heritage of technology innovation," said Anil Agrawal, CEO, CIMCON Lighting.  "NearSky™ provides a city with true insight into its operations and the capability to quickly make changes that will further increase operational efficiency, reduce energy costs, protect the environment, improve public safety, and ultimately improve the quality of life for residents."
