Towering PoE: Philips, Cisco Wire Madrid Skyscraper with IoT Lighting

In one of the largest known installations yet of Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) lighting, Philips and Cisco are wiring the 400-ft Torre Europa in Madrid’s financial district with the smart LED technology. Philips said it has equipped 14 of the skyscraper’s 32 floors with 5400 PoE-connected luminaires, covering 211,000 ft2 of office space. The smart lighting installation is part of a major refurbishment to the 31-year-old tower by owner Grupo Infinorsa, which hopes that the modern technology overhauls will draw tenants willing to pay premium rents. PoE lighting routes both electricity and data to luminaires over Ethernet cable, which is the physical line that typically underpins wired information networks in commercial and office buildings around the world. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
