Portland, Maine Switches Over to Dhyan StreetMan to Manage Smart Streetlights

Cloud-Based Central Management System (CMS) Provides Invaluable Insights and Better Control

FREMONT, CALIFORNIA, October 26, 2021 – Dhyan Networks and Technologies Inc. (Dhyan), the device management experts, today announced that the City of Portland, Maine has successfully migrated to StreetMan, Dhyan’s cloud-based state-of-the-art central management system (CMS) to manage their smart streetlights.

Dhyan has been providing device management software for over 15 years to technology companies that cater to customers in the telecom, IoT and smart grid markets.

StreetMan’s advanced features have allowed the City to optimize the distribution of controllers between gateways resulting in a more reliable RF network and the ability to isolate faulty controllers from those with communication issues. StreetMan’s intuitive design has made the entire process of migrating from the existing software to StreetMan very smooth and easy for the City of Portland. The City’s Streetlight and Smart City partner for the project, The Efficiency Network (TEN) agreed: “Dhyan has proven themselves a very competent partner,” said
Jim Schriver, Director of Smart City Solutions.

A cloud-based SaaS product, StreetMan is technology-agnostic and vendor-neutral, with built-in support for several industry standard protocols such as TALQ, OSCP, MQTT, HTTP and communication technologies such as Zigbee, LoRa, NB-IoT, Powerline, Cellular, etc. It lets cities and municipalities manage, monitor, and control a variety of smart street assets such as streetlights, cameras, access points, charging stations, billboards, and IoT sensors.

Dhyan successfully migrated LumInsight, our Echelon Cloud CMS,
to their StreetMan CMS without any data loss or disruption. They were
able to accomplish this fully remotely, from thousands of miles away,
without a single onsite visit. This partnership helps us further achieve our sustainability goals while also reducing costs and achieving efficiencies.
Our team members can now diagnose problems from their desktops and can share that information with our technicians so they are fully prepared to make the necessary repairs in the field.”

Jon Jennings,
Portland City Manager

“Streetlights are one of the largest expenses for any city,” said Prakash Ramadass, Dhyan VP Smart Cities. “Converting streetlights from older technology to LED can save a good deal of money,” he added, “but by adding smart controllers and a sophisticated central management system such as StreetMan, the savings can be increased even further by giving the city the ability to dim the streetlights on demand and by enabling them to do proactive maintenance.”

The Dhyan family of central management software for the IoT market consists of StreetMan for managing smart streetlights, LightMan for managing smart area lights such as in campuses, buildings, and warehouses, and CitiMan for managing smart city IoT assets.
