Cyan is an integrated system design company based in Cambridge, UK. We provide a communication platform that enables the measurement and control of energy consumption for the metering and lighting markets, helping to reduce energy losses. Our wireless mesh networking platform offers ‘last mile’ connectivity between millions of devices and enterprise software, supporting bilateral communications with the end customer.

The Cyan solutions have been specifically developed for emerging markets and Cyan now has a well established local team in India, together with strong partners in Brazil. Pilots have been deployed in China, but Cyan has not been able to move opportunities to volume. Therefore there is a strong potential for joint ventures with local Chinese energy supply companies.

The two Cyan product lines are:

Smart Metering 
complete scalable solution for smart metering, wireless mesh and point-to-point meter reading in license free bands, best in class range and system robustness, electricity metering plus battery powered gas and water metering

Smart Lighting
smart lighting solution for energy efficient lighting control and measurement, street lights, tunnels, car parks and public locations, controls all types of  lamps including LED, sodium and Xenon (HID), lamp dimming, bulb failure etc.
