As municipalities continue to embrace digital revolution in a bid to become smarter cities, the unique intersection between ICT and development road map is inspiring new innovative applications. While this quest for smart city continues, the transformation of street lighting has become a topical issue. As part of ongoing investigation in Triangulum smart city project, this paper presents some simulation results on the use of narrowband powerline communication (NPLC) for street lights monitoring and control. The results show that, with low power, NPLC can support a 3.5km network of street lights without using a relay. It is also shown that, when the data packet size quadruples, latency degrades by up to 22.63% (242.03ms) in the worst case.
