Technical advantages of NB-IoT smart street lighting control system

As we all know, the traditional road lighting control is a group control method, which cannot control individual light poles and does not have the function of single light control. Therefore, when a single light fails, the smart street light management platform cannot collect individual light status information, making it difficult to achieve refined management. The mainstream energy-saving measures are time control and light control, that is, by means of voltage regulation and midnight control, but the effect is very limited. In order to solve this problem, Yibai has developed a smart street light system and a single light controller based on NB-IoT smart street lighting control system.

As the terminal control device of the smart street light system, the single light controller can not only collect the information related to the operation of the street light and send it to the remote management platform, but also receive various operation instructions from the smart street light management platform, and control the switching of a single street light brightness adjustment. The single-lamp controller uses various integrated sensors to measure the temperature and surrounding light brightness. Normally it uses the power detection module to detect the power supply status and the working power of the street lamp, transmits the collected data to the NB-IoT module via the operator’s network, and sends it to the street light management platform, thus the smart street light management platform will control the street lights accordingly.

The smart street light system that adopts NB-IoT technology can not only remotely control the single light but also realize the continuous dimming function, which can reduce the light brightness during off-peak lighting hours, effectively reducing the energy consumption of roadway lighting. At the same time, by collecting street lamp operation data information and conducting intelligent analysis, remote fault analysis and positioning can be realized, thereby effectively improving the efficiency of maintenance personnel in checking and clearing obstacles, greatly saving maintenance costs, and achieving the goal of efficient, reliable, and energy-saving urban lighting management. In addition, smart street lights can also be powered off when the lights are turned off, providing support for other devices (micro base stations, cameras, WiFi modules, environmental monitoring modules, etc.) that need power on the smart light pole.

Advantages of NB-IoT Smart Street Lights
Deep coverage
Through technologies such as increasing the power spectral density and increasing the number of retransmissions, in the same frequency band, the gain of NB-IoT is increased by about 20dB compared to the GPRS network, which can provide wider and deeper coverage to meet the needs of street lights seamless overlay.

Massive connections
NB-IoT enables each group to support 50,000 connections, meeting the need for reliable access to all street lights within the coverage area.

Low power consumption
NB-IoT uses PSM and eDRX technologies to reduce terminal power consumption by simplifying wireless protocols and shortening sending and receiving time, which meets the requirements of urban lighting energy conservation.

The low rate, low power, and low bandwidth characteristics of NB-IoT bring the advantage of low cost.
