Los Angeles, California has launched a new urban initiative in the form of smart street lighting. This brand new development is a line of 100 Smartpoles.
Fitted with energy-saving LED bulbs, Smartpoles are a Philips-manufactured street lighting product which also serve as cellular hubs to boost LTE reception throughout the sunny city. In addition to saving energy and providing better broadband connectivity with the smartpoles, Los Angeles holds the title of the first city in the world to debut these street lighting solutions.
With an infrastructure such as this, Los Angeles residents are witnessing a revenue that can create jobs, improve the environment and save taxpayer dollars -- all of which are bright ideas all residents can get behind.
