There are two optimal solutions for managing lighting on highways, the advantages of which will be described below, but the QULON system offers other solutions as well.

A lighting control system for highways that uses GSM and Power Line technologies provides the possibility of individual control and management of each lighting device. Both technologies have their advantages and are applied in different conditions, taking into account the specific terrain features and requirements of regional restrictions.

The Power Line technology, which transmits data through power lines (Simpline technology), offers several benefits, such as cost savings on communication since it utilizes the existing power transmission network. This can be advantageous, especially for large-scale installations with a significant number of lighting devices.


Power Line is not dependent on communication signals or cellular network availability. It uses the existing power transmission infrastructure for communication and lighting control. This means that the highway lighting system can be more reliable and stable as it utilizes the physical power transmission network.

Protection against external interference can be particularly important on highways, where there can be strong electromagnetic disturbances from traffic or nearby structures. Power Line communication is based on power transmission wires, making it more resilient to external influences such as electromagnetic interference or environmental impacts.



In cases where independence from power transmission is required or the system does not need to utilize the existing power transmission infrastructure, GSM communication technology would be more straightforward to integrate as there is no need for additional work to deploy power lines for lighting control.

Furthermore, GSM devices can be easily integrated with lighting devices and controllers, and their configuration and connection to the mobile network are relatively simple. This can simplify the installation and maintenance process of the highway lighting system.

Using GSM, operators can remotely monitor and control lighting using the mobile network. They can adjust the lighting schedule, regulate brightness, and turn the lights on/off from anywhere with access to the cellular network. This is convenient and efficient for operators who need to quickly respond to changes in lighting conditions.
