Message From The Editor

Managing Editor, Line Goyette What are the factors to consider before investing in major modernization projects?

Some studies provide that 20 billion objects and devices will be connected via the Internet in 2020. That's almost tomorrow. Decisions made at the start of large-scale projects are all the more important as they will feed future decisions. For these reasons in particular, city lighting is at the heart of all urban issues. Decision-making factors must therefore be well defined and understood before undertaking major upgrades or modernizations of commercial, institutional or industrial facilities. Specifying products becomes a critical issue. We will come back to this in the near future in a conversation with an industry leader. Good reading!
