Newton, Mass., January 24, 2012 — Ambient Corp., the developer of an open architecture smart grid communication platform, recently deployed their 75,000th communications node; the flagship hardware element of the Ambient Smart Grid Communications Platform.

First deployed in 2005, the Ambient Smart Grid Communications Node has provided open, secure, two-way, standards-based grid communications for utilities.

Ambient's nodes connect more than 500,000 end devices in the Duke network, and can support a variety of smart grid applications, in parallel, including but not limited to; advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), distribution automation (DA) and outage management.

Starting at the communications network layer in any smart grid implementation ensures the costs of implementation, operations and communications are optimized and the Ambient node represents a most cost-effective solution, to reduce both capital and operational expenses for utilities.

As there is no one communications technology that is right for all applications and environments across utilities, the Ambient node's ability to support multiple communications protocols simultaneously along with purpose built applications and management system provide a level of visibility and control that utilities have never before enjoyed.
