Ambient Corp. says that all of the Ambient Smart Grid Node family is now certified for the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) network, making available a high-speed, high-bandwidth communications network to connect utility and machine-to-machine smart grid applications.

According to Ambient, the LTE wireless network offers speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G and delivers the coverage and capacity for a fast, real-time connection that supports a larger number of connected endpoints and applications simultaneously, including video-enabled monitoring and control of grid assets.

"The 4G LTE wireless network addresses latency concerns typically associated with networks that deliver critical data, command and control messaging, and enable distribution automation applications," says Ram Rao, Ambient Corp.'s chief technology officer. "The flexibility of a high-speed cellular connection with greater signal penetration capabilities allows numerous applications to run simultaneously, while providing connectivity to head-end systems and supporting a distributed intelligence framework."
