Allied Telesis Partners with Echelon to Deliver Solutions for Smart Cities and Smart Buildings

SAN JOSE, CA – April 11, 2018 - Allied Telesis, a leading provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature-rich and scalable data exchange solutions, today announced the signing of a value added reseller agreement with Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON). Under the terms of the global agreement, Allied Telesis will be authorized to incorporate Echelon's intelligent lighting solutions into its smart city and smart campus projects, and Echelon's industry leading IoT products into Allied Telesis’ other projects requiring building automation and controls.

In major cities, buildings are responsible for approximately 30 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and 70 per cent of energy consumption. To better align with climate and sustainability goals, and to help improve public health and safety, smart cities are looking to smart building technologies to drive impactful changes in facilities management.

"We’re seeing strong demand for our Envigilant Sensor Platform (ESP) and the advanced data collection, analytics and visualization capabilities it delivers to manufacturing, regional transit and public safety customers,” said Taki Oshima, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Allied Telesis. “This agreement with Echelon will allow us to extend Envigilant’s capabilities to the smart building market, where reducing energy consumption and associated costs is a priority for public and private owners.”

Echelon's intelligent lighting solutions turn otherwise ordinary LED streetlight retrofits into 21st century smart city networks capable of fine-tuned control, and can form the basis for future smart city applications. The company’s Industrial IoT solutions for building automation and controls include SmartServer™ IoT, the first edge server to incorporate the most common industrial device protocols. This allows existing and new networks of such devices to seamlessly connect to the cloud and make their data available for use by modern analytics and AI engines.

”We look forward to extending our global reach to prospective customers with Allied Telesis for intelligent lighting and IIoT projects,” said Ron Sege, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Echelon. “Allied Telesis’ solutions-based philosophy and reputation for reliability are perfect fits for our markets.”
