Telefónica Tech digitise Santiago de Compostela’s public lighting system

The joint venture formed by Ferrovial and Endesa X has selected Telefónica Tech as its technology partner for the digitalisation of public lighting in Santiago de Compostela (Spain). This initiative is part of the maintenance and supply project for the outdoor public lighting of the Galician municipality awarded to this joint venture.

Telefónica Tech implements, in collaboration with Tellink, its intelligent lighting solution that allows Ferrovial and Endesa X to completely remotely manage LED luminaires and achieve improvements in efficiency and energy savings. To this end, Telefónica Tech is deploying more than 10,000 nodes with NB-IoT connectivity, designed and manufactured by Tellink, on the different streetlights in the municipality to monitor their operation, report possible failures in real time and send all the information collected to an advanced software platform for analysis and management.

Santiago de Compostela’s new smart LED lighting system is prepared to adapt to the real needs of each municipality. Thanks to this technological solution from Telefónica Tech, the consortium will be able, for example, to remotely manage the switching on and off of each streetlight individually, modify the levels of light intensity during the night or adapt the lighting levels of each area for the celebration of special events.

Providing the luminaires with intelligence not only contributes to improving energy efficiency, but also optimises maintenance tasks and the management of the installations, monitoring consumption and acting against possible unjustified deviations. In fact, the system is prepared to detect possible lighting failures before they occur and affect citizens.
