Ambient enhances smart grid node with analytics capabilities

Oct 03, 2012 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Smart grid communications provider Ambient Corp. (NASDAQ: AMBT) reported it has launched two new smart grid nodes: the Ambient MicroNode and Ambient MiniNode complement the existing Ambient Smart Grid Node, which has been enhanced with more powerful grid analytics capabilities.


The Ambient Smart Grid Node family now provides utilities with even greater choice for reliable and efficient management of multiple smart grid applications through a single infrastructure that utilizes an open IP-based architecture.

Ambient's chief technology officer, Ram Rao, said, "No matter which smart grid application a utility is focused on, there is a need for flexible connectivity solutions for remote devices. It has always been our philosophy to offer a network platform with choice in the communications technologies since no single technology will be suitable for all grid scenarios. With the launch of the Ambient MiniNode and MicroNode, we offer not only choice in communications technology, but also greater choice to match price performance in the hardware to facilitate those communications and applications." The Ambient Smart Grid Nodes are purpose-built network devices, all with advanced processing capability and memory that, along with the AmbientNMS, deliver benefits of distributed intelligence grid architecture. Applications developed for the Ambient Smart Grid platform can be run on all three types of node. They deliver upstream and downstream high-speed data communications using a variety of wired and wireless technologies, including serial, Ethernet, PLC, cellular, Wi-Fi or RF. Each node is a modular device that can be configured for different roles within the network and is suitable for targeted or scale deployments. They are easy to install and allow for rapid deployment.
