SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON) today announced the signing of a value added reseller agreement with Allied Telesis, Inc. Under the terms of the global agreement, Allied Telesis will be authorized to incorporate Echelon’s intelligent lighting solutions into its smart city and smart campus projects, and Echelon’s industry leading IoT products into Allied Telesis’ projects requiring building automation and controls.
Echelon’s intelligent lighting solutions include the all-new LumInsight® 2 Cloud Central Management System, and LumInsight IoT Base Stations. These next generation products turn otherwise ordinary LED streetlight retrofits into 21st century smart city networks capable of fine-tuned control, and can form the basis for future smart city applications.
Echelon’s industry leading Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions for building automation and controls include the just announced SmartServer™ IoT, the first edge server to incorporate the most common industrial device protocols. This allows existing and new networks of such devices to seamlessly connect to the cloud and make their data available for use by modern analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) engines. With Echelon’s embedded architecture, customers can easily and cost-effectively embrace, extend and enhance existing IIoT installations to avoid costly ‘rip and replace’ projects.
Echelon’s installed base of more than 140 million embedded controls around the world offers the potential for companies like Allied Telesis to provide a new range of solutions to customers. “We are excited about the potential for the Allied Telesis-Echelon partnership, because of Echelon’s IIoT presence and technologies. Echelon’s abilities to embrace, extend and enhance existing networks of control devices will enable us to provide additional value to our customers,” according to Taki Oshima, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Allied Telesis.
“We look forward to extending our global reach to prospective customers with Allied Telesis for intelligent lighting and IIoT projects,” said Ron Sege, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Echelon. “Allied Telesis’ solutions-based philosophy and reputation for reliability are perfect fits for our markets.”
