Trilliant Adopts TALQ Smart City protocol
The communication company receives official TALQ Certification
Trilliant's IOT Gateway is TALQ compliant and provides the foundation for transformation by connecting information throughout the city on one fully integrated platform. Utilizing standard protocol interfaces to aggregate street lighting data and other smart city applications, Trilliant's Smart Cities Platform is meant to deliver improved operations, citizens' services and strategic innovation to cities globally. The IOT Gateway is a key component to deliver data and business insights from smart sensors and endpoints, enabling data aggregation and analytics across a fast and secure private network.
In 2012, the TALQ Consortium started to develop a global interface standard to connect and manage heterogeneous outdoor lighting systems from different hardware and software vendors. Five years later, in 2017, the Consortium decided to enlarge its scope and address the wider need for interoperability between Smart City Applications and IoT networks. After updating the TALQ Specification to version 2.0, based on a standard RESTful JSON approach in 2018, the TALQ integration into existing Central Management Systems and gateways from Outdoor Device Networks (ODN) became much easier and faster. At the same time, large tenders have started to require more interoperability with TALQ. As a result, more and more vendors are now considering supporting the TALQ Smart City Protocol and presenting their product for TALQ Certification.
TALQ, being an open industry consortium, gives all existing and new member companies access to the detailed TALQ Specification, supports them in integrating it into their own systems, and invites them to participate in the future development and updates of the TALQ protocol.
About the TALQ Consortium
Founded in 2012, the TALQ Consortium is establishing a globally accepted standard for management software interfaces to control and monitor heterogeneous smart city applications. The TALQ Smart City Protocol is a specification for information exchange, suitable for implementation in various products and systems. This way interoperability between Central Management Software (CMS) and Outdoor Device Networks (ODN) from different vendors will be enabled, such that a single CMS can control different ODNs in different parts of a city or region.
