"The Vodafone certification confirms the performance, reliability and security of our products for multiple grid modernization applications, including gas, water and electric metering; demand response; and distribution automation," says John J. Joyce, president and CEO of Ambient. "Extending the certification to all Ambient Smart Grid Nodes facilitates quicker and easier deployment of the Ambient Smart Grid Platform."
