ROSEMONT, IL—Dust Networks™, a provider of low-power wireless sensor networking (WSN) systems and Streetline, Inc. announced that Dust Networks has been selected as the WSN provider for Streetline's City Infrastructure Technologies (CiT) Platform.

Dust's network-ready SmartMesh® products, based on the company's Time Synchronized Mesh Protocol (TSMP™), are integrated into Streetline's parking-management solutions—including Meter Monitors and Vehicle Sensors—providing low-power wireless connectivity to previously inaccessible information. Recent Streetline parking-management deployments included a pilot with the City of Los Angeles designed to support the city's on-street parking operation with real-time information about meter operation and parking-space usage. With such information, cities can increase revenue opportunities, reduce traffic congestion, and have better parking and overall city-management efficiency.

"We selected Dust Networks' TSMP-based products because they are industrially hardened, highly reliable, and deliver extremely long battery life, which is very important in rugged urban environments," comments Tod Dykstra, Streetline's CEO. "Because Dust provided an end-to-end networking solution to help us collect and manage information, we were able to focus on developing innovative products that simply deliver the information our customers need."

"We are seeing continued demand from a broad range of companies who are launching reliable, low-power monitoring and control applications built on our TSMP-based products," states Steve Toteda, vice president of marketing for Dust Networks.
