Sensity uses "energy-efficient LED lighting as the foundation for its IoT platform for Smart Cities. The company enables light owners to capitalize on the LED conversion process by embedding networking technology within both retrofit and new LED luminaires."

Mike Lanman, senior vice president - Enterprise Products and IoT at Verizon, said: "Sensity is a leading provider of IoT solutions for smart communities with a strong ecosystem of partners, and this transaction will accelerate the deployment of large-scale implementations that will drive the digital transformation of cities, universities and venues. Verizon is uniquely positioned through its infrastructure investments at the network, platform and application levels to provide holistic solutions that empower communities to address their most pervasive challenges."
