Silver Spring Networks Introduces the IoT Edge Router™, Enables Simple and Secure Integration of Smart City Devices and Applications
In November, at the Smart City Expo World Congress, the world’s largest smart city event, Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE: SSNI) unveiled the new Silver Spring IoT Edge Router™, expanding the capabilities of its globally proven Internet of Things networking platform. The IoT Edge Router enables cities and utilities to easily, securely, and cost-effectively integrate a wide array of devices and applications to their existing Silver Spring IoT networks. With the standards-based IoT Edge Router, network operators can simply ‘plug and play’ new and legacy smart city devices into these already deployed networks, such as smart street light and smart grid systems. The ability to cost-effectively integrate and transport data from these devices, such as smart parking stations, intelligent transportation systems, bicycle rental kiosks, EV charging stations, digital signage, environmental and lighting sensors, substation monitors, and more, helps cities and utilities reduce the costs of testing and deployment, improve civic service operations and citizen engagement, and create new revenue streams and innovation opportunities.
