NEWTON, Mass., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ambient Corporation (NASDAQ: AMBT), provider of a secure, flexible, and scalable smart grid platform, today will host a visit from newly elected U.S. Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III (MA-4), at its headquarters in Newton, MA. Congressman Kennedy will meet with company leaders and employees to discuss the success of the Company's grid communications and applications platform and grid modernization efforts. 

Congressman Kennedy will tour the facility and will be briefed on the Ambient Smart Grid ® platform, a combination of hardware and software, which helps utilities manage operations critical to the delivery of secure, affordable, and reliable power.  The Congressman, who holds a degree in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University and serves on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, will also observe a demonstration of AmbientPQM™, Ambient's advanced power quality monitoring solution, which can be used to detect power outages.

President and Chief Executive Officer John J. Joyce commented, "It is an honor to have Congressman Kennedy visit our operation.  We welcome the opportunity to provide the Congressman and his staff with the data needed to substantiate policies that promote investments for a better, more reliable and more efficient grid."  Thomas J. Dunleavy, a member of Ambient's Board of Advisors, and a former Commissioner for the state of New York's Public Service Commission, added, "Hurricane Sandy exposed the vulnerabilities of an outdated electricity infrastructure.  Now is the time to consider how to deploy technologies that are the backbone of an intelligent grid." 

Governments, utilities, and industry around the world are investigating, and investing in, a variety of technologies and policies in order to upgrade their electricity networks. Ambient's innovative platform provides a great deal of flexibility. It allows a utility to deploy infrastructure, to support multiple smart grid applications – in parallel, including demand response, distribution automation, monitoring, and smart metering.  It offers further flexibility by supporting the simultaneous use of a variety of wired and wireless communication technologies.
