Wipro Lighting today announced that it has become a Cisco Digital Building Solutions provider for connected lighting. This collaboration will bring together Wipro’s Smart & Connected Lighting systems and Cisco Digital Building Solutions that link various building services through a single, converged IP network, the company said in a release.
It said that this partnership will enable Wipro Lighting to simplify convergence of its lighting solutions with building automation systems over IP without compromising lighting efficiency, maintenance, product life and security. This joint effort is aimed at helping corporate real estate managers and facilities heads deliver better user experience, save on energy and operating expenses as well as reap the benefit of Internet of Things (IoT) in workspaces, it added.
The Cisco Digital Building Solutions framework will allow building managers to extend the benefits of the IoT throughout their facilities by converging multiple building networks including lighting, heating, cooling, IP video, IoT sensors and more through a highly secure and intelligent network platform.

With the emergence of the IoT and big data, smart and connected digital lighting is the way forward as it’ll bring intelligence & functionality into lighting systems. Hence, this trend will play an important role in making workspaces more productive and enhance employee wellbeing at the same time.”
Daisy Chittilapilly, Managing Director, Partner Organization, Cisco India and SAARC, said, “Lighting is one of the best ways to bring the Internet of Things to office buildings. Smart and secure lighting will form the backbone of the smart office of the future. We are extremely happy to collaborate with Wipro Lighting to empower building managers to quickly digitize their lighting networks to drive better user experiences and efficiency. Together Wipro Lighting and Cisco aim to accelerate adoption of these solutions in the market and deliver increased comfort and efficiency.”
