REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- January 25, 2013

Silver Spring Networks, a leading networking platform and solutions provider
for smart energy networks, today announced a strategic partnership with
Streetlight.Vision, the leader in streetlight control and monitoring software,
to deliver a Smart City solution enabling operators to more efficiently and
reliably operate their lighting networks while creating a city-wide IPv6-based
communications and monitoring network for any other city equipment, including
traffic light control, parking meters, environmental sensors and
infrastructure monitoring. Up to 40% of a municipality’s energy spending is on
streetlights. Smart public lighting networks can drive reductions of more than
40% in streetlight energy consumption and can lower overall system costs by
30%. Silver Spring and Streetlight.Vision have already demonstrated the
efficacy of the solutions in the field and are targeting lighting operators
globally who are looking to more effectively manage their public lighting
infrastructure and reduce streetlight energy consumption.

“Our proven IPv6 networking platform and extensive experience designing and
operating massive-scale outdoor networks under the most demanding conditions
allows us to expand support for any number of applications. As we move towards
the ‘Everything Network™,’ smart street lighting, traffic control, and the
broader range of Smart City infrastructure is a perfect fit with that
experience,” said Eric Dresselhuys, Executive Vice President of Global
Development, Silver Spring Networks. “By partnering with market leaders such
as Streetlight.Vision we’re establishing an open, interoperable foundation for
infrastructure operators to provide smarter, more intelligent, and more
cost-effective services to citizens.”

“As the leader in managing smart lighting software, we know the challenging
environments, high standards required and customer’s expectations in many
countries. We are delighted to partner with Silver Spring and have long
appreciated their pioneering solutions,” said Christophe Orceau, General
Manager of Streetlight.Vision. “Silver Spring’s IPv6 city-wide network and
industry-leading innovation will not only enable municipalities to save energy
and increase outdoor lighting maintenance efficiency but also enable a new
generation of smart street applications not effectively served by legacy

Energy provider and street lighting operator Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E),
with operations in the central United States, recognizes the value of this
combined solution. “This solution is the only technically effective answer we
have seen to delivering the monitoring and control so critical to efficiently
managing public lighting,” said Ken Grant, Managing Director at OG&E. “We look
forward to working with Silver Spring and Streetlight.Vision to test this
solution that could improve quality and reduce costs for our customers.”

Silver Spring is unique in its ability to provide a high-performance
IPv6-based network that establishes a communications foundation for all of a
city’s assets regardless of distribution topology. Its high-bandwidth
capabilities enable support for a myriad of applications including smart
energy metering, smart street lighting, environmental sensors, traffic
signals, electric vehicles, information panels, and parking meters, among
others. Silver Spring’s unified networking and software solution provides a
much higher endpoint to concentrator ratio, ensures higher levels of
reliability, enables broader geographic coverage, and is more cost-effective
than existing solutions.
