Ambient Corp., a provider of smart grid communications and applications, and ELO Sistemas Eletronicos, a metering technology provider based in Brazil, have announced their partnership to bring smart grid communications technology to South America.

The partnership combines Ambient's Smart Grid platform communications technology and network management software with ELO's experience in electronic meters and smart meter solutions. The collaboration will also enable ELO to bring advanced communications technologies for smart meter reading applications to their utility customers. The two companies expect to have the integrated system ready for pilot later this year, in preparation for volume rollouts beginning in 2013.

"We are excited to provide our customers with the added benefits of Ambient's IP, standards-based, open platform architecture ensuring interoperability of technologies," says Marcos Rizzo, vice president of business development for ELO Sistemas Eletronicos. "By leveraging Ambient's communications platform, we will deliver greater grid visibility, control and financial returns for our customers."
