Ambient Corp. reports that its Ambient Smart Grid Nodes now have an optional module that features either a single or dual G3-PLC modem for metering and other smart grid applications.

Ambient says it has adopted the OFDM-based power-line communications (PLC) technology to facilitate better communication over the existing power line grid, both low and medium voltage.

"We have adopted a PLC technology because it minimizes infrastructure and maintenance costs. It is vitally important to us that it is standards-based to ensure interoperability and that it can support metering, new distribution switches, sensors, and home area network applications,” says Ambients’ Donald Pollock.
