Lights, Camera…Connectivity! Bringing Smart Streetlights to the Stage

April 1, 2024

5G / Outdoor Wireless

In the grand script of city planning and urban development, you may not think of streetlights as playing a pivotal role. In fact, streetlights are so ubiquitous in our everyday environments that we rarely notice them at all. They blend into our surroundings, and that’s the point, right? 

Well, you may be surprised to learn that in the modern narrative of city connectivity, some streetlights are becoming the stars of the show. Not because they stand out visually, no, but for their integrated gigabit wireless networking functionality housed discreetly within the fixture itself. 

Please welcome to the stage, Siklu by Ceragon’s BrightSites Broadband Luminaires, a groundbreaking solution turning simple streetlights into beacons of connectivity. 

The Rising Star of Smart City Networks

Cities are evolving, and at the core of this transformation is the integration of digital infrastructure. High-speed broadband connectivity is no longer a “nice-to-have,” but a requirement – some call it the fourth utility – and just as crucial to people’s well-being as water or electricity. Reliable broadband fosters improved community engagement, enhances public safety, and supports local economies.
