Sep 27, 2017: Philips Lighting is opening a computer and network center in India, which will operate LED lighting, including outdoor, office, and architectural, for customers around the globe. The center will also collect data from around the world.
The new computer and network center—Global Customer Remote Operations Center (ROC) will be opened in Bengaluru, India. The center will be unique in the sense that it will transform lighting vendors into information technology players, treating LED lights and luminaires as nodes on networks, and these networks will improve lighting management as well as collect data.
Companies like Philips will analyze the data and provide insights into lighting informations, and other business operation info like providing advise on how office buildings can reassign space or how offices around the world can save by cutting down on under-utilized premises. These companies can also provide advice to smart cities on how to cut down on traffic and pollution.
This new Philips center in Bengaluru will be one of its kind to establish a global lighting-related management center. Philips is working in partnership with Indian IT and software company HCL Technologies.
This center will help Philips customers get the most from their connected lighting infrastructure, and will provide them with a range of services like real-time fault reporting, in-depth consultancy services, etc.
