TALQ Consortium Hosts Interoperability Plugfest for Smart City Networks

The TALQ Consortium has announced the results of an interoperability plugfest (an event where multiple vendors test their products’ compatibility with others) that took place in Valencia, Spain recently. TALQ was formed back in 2012 with the mission of standardizing software interfaces for smart-city applications that would likely utilize a networking backbone of connected LED street lights. The plugfest revealed that seven different CMS (central management software) systems could all work with network gateways, controllers, and sensors from multiple vendors. The plugfest involved CMS implementations and networking technology designed to the TALQ Specification 2.0 that was delivered to members of the organization earlier this year. More recently, the consortium published a whitepaper that explained the theory behind what the organization calls “The smart city protocol.” The TALQ protocol should help eliminate a major roadblock to the adoption of connected outdoor lighting and more advanced smart-city applications. https://www.ledsmagazine.com/
