Verizon, Ambient sign joint marketing agreement for smart grid applications

To deploy a host of smart grid projects around the US

By CBR Staff Writer

Verizon Wireless and Ambient Corporation, a developer of communications equipment, have signed a joint marketing agreement intended to facilitate the deployment of a host of smart grid projects around the US.

According to Verizon Wireless, Ambient’s X-3000 node, running on its network, provides the communications platform that enables data from residential and commercial smart meters, appliances and other applications to be transported via IP-based technologies over a utility’s smart grid system.

This platform reportedly allows for two-way efficient collection, analysis and management of energy data to promote reliable, affordable and environmentally friendly operations.

Verizon Wireless has said that its network provides Ambient’s X-3000 with a reliable and secure data communications backhaul for the Ambient Smart Grid platform, which is designed to support such services as advanced metering infrastructure, energy management, real-time pricing, demand side management/direct load control, and system monitoring.

Mark Bartolomeo, vice president of enterprise data sales at Verizon Wireless, said: We have seen significant interest and growth in the utility sector for smart technologies. This joint marketing agreement helps us provide utility customers with a solution designed to aid them in planning for long-term growth and profitability. This comprehensive platform holds great promise for extending smart grid applications nationwide.
