Ambient Corp. enhances smart grid communications node

San Antonio, January 25, 2012 — Ambient Corp.'s smart grid communications nodes now include Qualcomm's mobile broadband solution, the MDM6600 chipset.

This chipset adds communications flexibility to the Ambient Smart Grid communications platform, and is certified by Verizon Wireless for use in its wireless network. 

At the DistribuTECH 2012 Conference and Exhibition in San Antonio, Texas, January 24-26, Ambient (Booth # 4220) and Qualcomm (Booth # 1941) will both demonstrate the capabilities of Ambient's communications node using Qualcomm's chipsets.

For many utilities deploying smart grid networks, cellular backhaul is the most logical, easy-to- deploy and cost effective method of providing connectivity to assets in the field due to its breadth of coverage and carrier-supported reliability.

The certification by Verizon Wireless assures utilities and other users of the Ambient Smart Grid Communications Platform that the architecture will deploy anywhere with Verizon's network, for both application communications and system backhaul.
