Ambient Corp. has announced that all Ambient Smart Grid Nodes fully support DNP3 protocol, which enables local data aggregation and control at distributed locations on the utility grid.

According to the company, DNP3 protocol support allows the nodes to collect, process, store, communicate and act on data from DNP3-enabled intelligent electronic devices used on the grid.

"Being able to cost-effectively combine existing and new assets in any grid modernization plan, using a common communications and applications platform, avoids single-use networks and reduces unnecessary cost," says Ram Rao, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Ambient Corp.
