A practical approach to connected lighting. Can we finally make it work?

Lighting control is a particularly demanding application for wireless technologies. The last couple of years showed that traditional networking concepts did not work for professional lighting environment. In the webinar, Simon Slupik – CTO at Silvair and chair of the Bluetooth SIG’s Mesh Working Group – will explain how the most recent networking trends can help the lighting industry address this challenge. Discussing the solutions that are developed to address the problems of the evergrowing Internet traffic, Simon will describe how they can be applied to wireless lighting control networks to finally allow them to achieve truly flawless performance.

Learning points:

  • Why connected lighting hadn’t kicked off in professional applications? Business and technological roadblocks
  • What are the innovative concepts developed recently to support the growth of the them to connected lighting systems?
  • What is Information Centric Networking (ICN), what benefits does it have over obsolete networking technologies, and how it can improve connected lighting in commercial spaces?
  • What does Bluetooth mesh have in common with ICN, and how this all translates to the performance of wireless, sensor-driven lighting control systems?
