New York-based Consolidated Edison (Con Edison) has called on Ambient Corp. to provide application development and communications equipment to replace discontinued technology for commercial and industrial metering.

Ambient says its Smart Grid Node family enables real-time data communication for multiple applications in parallel, such as smart metering, distribution automation, power quality monitoring for voltage optimization.

"Consolidated Edison needed a solution to interface with commercial and industrial meters at remote customer premises to collect and transmit data directly to their control center,” says David Masters, Ambient's chief technology officer. “Ambient's Smart Grid Nodes were selected due to their ability to meet all the specified criteria. In addition, Ambient developed an application hosted locally on our node to collect, store and transmit data from the meters."
