Ambient Corporation's 100,000th Smart Grid Node Deployed

NEWTON, Mass., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Ambient Corporation (NASDAQ: AMBT), a leading provider of flexible and scalable smart grid communications platforms and technologies, announces the  deployment of the 100,000 th Ambient Smart Grid Node ®, the flagship hardware element of the Ambient Smart Grid Communications Platform. First deployed in 2005, the Ambient Smart Grid Node has pioneered open, secure, two-way, standards-based grid communications for utilities.

Today, Ambient's nodes connect more than 800,000 end devices in the Duke Energy 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 that the costs of implementation, operations, and communications are optimized. The Ambient node represents a cost-effective solution to reduce both capital and operational expenses for utilities.

At the Company's Annual Meeting of Stockholders held earlier today, John J. Joyce, President and CEO of Ambient, addressed this milestone achievement. "With over ten years of experience in meeting the needs of utilities, we have designed and manufactured a communications platform, with the X-3100 node at its heart, that has the versatility to meet the multiple smart grid applications for today's utility needs. Moreover, the platform is flexible to accommodate new requirements and applications as they are developed. We are gratified to have reached this milestone."

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, working simultaneously with purpose-built applications and consulting services, provides a level of visibility and control that utilities have never before enjoyed.
