Ambient Smart Grid™
allowing real-time insight into the operations of the electrical distribution grid
Ambient Corporation Newton, MA, (OTCBB: ABTG) designs, develops and markets Ambient Smart Grid™ communications technologies and equipment.
Utilizing proprietary, open standards-based technologies along with in-depth industry experience, Ambient provides utilities with solutions for creating smart grid communication platforms and technologies. Headquartered in Newton, MA,
The Ambient Smart Grid™ communications solution is a modular network overlaid on the medium-voltage and low-voltage segments of the power distribution system allowing real-time insight into the operations of the electrical distribution grid while supporting any IP-based application.
High-speed backhaul connections (which go to the Internet or to private networks) connect the Ambient Smart Grid™ network at any point along the medium voltage circuit allowing for IP data traffic to be carried, via a choice of multiple technologies including BPL, Wi-Fi, cellular, and/or low bit rate power line carrier (PLC).
To date, no single solution or technology has existed which provides the necessary flexibility in a cost-effective solution enabling a comprehensive digital communications network, incorporating standards-based technologies. Ambient’s Smart Grid™ communications platform was developed specifically to fill this void and meet the utility’s needs by integrating various technologies within the Ambient platform.
