Tridonic UK, a leading manufacturer and enabler for smart, connected lighting, has opened a Technology Hub at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London and invested in a new Connected Lighting Academy, in its Basingstoke headquarters. These investments are central to its digital and business transformation strategy, designed to help support and educate its OEM partners through training on the company’s latest products. This includes net4more and basicDIM Wireless, and will enable partners to learn more about the opportunities for connected lighting and how best to sell these complex, integrated lighting solutions.
Simon Blazey, Strategic Solutions Sales Manager, Tridonic, said; “The ubiquitous nature of light, in our buildings and the wider urban environment, combined with advancements in technology means that lighting is set to be the communications backbone for the smart buildings and smart cities of the future. The London hub is intended as a ‘Think tank’ to help incubate ideas around real business issues, through demonstrations of our technology and help visitors to gain an understanding of how the many building technologies deployed today can interoperate.” He continued; “Our first OEM has already undergone training at the Academy and they were excited about the new opportunities that are opened up with our products and solutions.”
