Firm also inks deal with pureLi-Fi of Scotland

Wipro Lighting has collaborated with leading global technology companies such as Cisco and pureLi-Fi, Scotland, to come up with Internet of Lighting (IoL) solutions for smart and connected indoor and outdoor lighting.

The company showcased a range of digital lighting solutions using IoT and Big Data at ‘LightShow’, in Bengaluru, its signature event to showcase its design, innovation and product capabilities.

Market size

With these solutions, the company is looking to tap an addressable market opportunity of ₹7,000-8,000 crore, which is the market size for commercial indoor (offices) and outdoor (smart cities) lighting, said Vineet Agrawal, CEO of Wipro Consumer Care & Lighting.

The company has collaborated with Cisco for Power on Ethernet (PoE) based lighting solutions and human-centric lighting solutions.

It has partnered with pureLi-Fi of Scotland to deliver high speed and secure data transmission through LED luminaires.

MNCs, early adopters

“The advantage of PoE, which is used for indoor lighting solutions, is the use of a single cable that powers both the lighting system as well as the lighting control system, reducing cabling cost and time to install. Similarly, the Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) technology which uses the light wave spectrum, frees up Wi-Fi bandwidth and also ensures 100 per cent secure data transmissions,” said Anuj Dhir, Vice-President and Business Head — Commercial Lighting, Wipro.

He said multinational companies are early adopters of Wipro’s IoL solutions in the indoor lighting space and Smart Cities are the early adopters in the outdoor lighting space.

Lighting solutions that enhance user experience, be it energy savings or improved workspace productivity and enhanced employee well-being, were showcased.
