    Philips SmartPoles

    Co-created to serve as digital real estate for the Internet of Things

    With Philips SmartPole pilots, Barcelona, Los Angeles, and San Jose have taken a major step in the evolution of the connected smart city.


    Philips SmartPoles serve both as important connected light sources which can be remotely managed, and Wi-Fi hotspots that improve mobile network performance across the city. Because they are a 2-in-1 solution – a connected device that also provides necessary light without taking up extra space – SmartPoles create digital real estate for the Internet of Things.


    For more information, download and read the Philips SmartPoles leaflet.

    The SmartPole initiative provides the City of San Jose with a unique win-win-win: more energy conservation, reduced expenditures  on energy and maintenance, implementation of LED lighting on dark city streets, and an enhanced broadband experience  for our residents.”
