As Ambient extends its offering beyond North America to Europe and further afield, having the Vodafone test certification will mean that it helps to offer the Ambient Smart Grid® Platform to utilities internationally. Vodafone has a significant Machine-to-Machine (M2M) roaming footprint globally that can enable Ambient Smart Grid Nodes on many carrier networks.

John J. Joyce, President and CEO of Ambient Corporation, commented, "Having our node tested on the Vodafone Test & Innovation Center will reduce our time-to-market, give our international customers peace of mind, and underscore that it works reliably."

Dr. Sabine Mueller-Albrecht, Head of Department - User Equipment, Vodafone Test and Innovation Center, said, "The Ambient X-3100 has passed the necessary tests to operate on the Vodafone global network. We look forward to working with the team at Ambient to enable their customers to realize the smart grid communications benefits that their platform delivers."

The Ambient Smart Grid Node is a purpose-built network device with advanced processing capability and memory, designed to support electric, gas and water utility communications and applications on the distribution grid. It provides upstream and downstream high-speed data communications using a variety of wired and wireless technologies, including cellular, serial, Ethernet, Power Line Communications (PLC), Wi-Fi and Radio Frequency (RF).
