The Connected Lighting Alliance Passes 20 Member Threshold

Tridonic has become the 20th member of The Connected Lighting Alliance.  Since its founding little over a year ago, membership of the alliance has more than tripled. This demonstrate an important showing of support for wireless connectivity standardization in the lighting industry.

“Following the endorsement of ZigBee Light Link for residential connected lighting solutions, and our scope extension to indoor professional lighting, we have seen an influx of new members. In the 2nd quarter of 2013, our alliance grew by 70%. New members include Tridonic, LG Electronics, Helvar, Harvard Engineering, GreenWave Reality, Frontline LED, Atmel, Fairchild Semiconductor, Marvell and ON Semiconductor” said Simon den Uijl, the Secretary General of The Connected Lighting Alliance.

Happy To Contribute

“We are happy to be the 20th member of the alliance and to contribute to the success of the alliance. For us, it was clear that as an industry leader, we had to join our peers in the discussions regarding a common open wireless connectivity standard for the indoor professional market,” said Dr. Alfred Felder, CEO of Tridonic.

In addition to acquiring new members, the alliance also had an Associate member that decided to upgrade its status. In doing so, Daintree Networks became the alliance’s 10th Regular Member. Regular Members enjoy the full benefits of the alliance’s activities, including participating in working groups and study and evaluate open standards.
