Smart Grid Platform Provider Adds Two Nodes to Grid Modernization Solution

(Transmission & Distribution World Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Ambient Corp. has launched two new smart grid nodes: Tthe Ambient MicroNode and Ambient MiniNode complement the existing Ambient Smart Grid Node, which has been enhanced with more powerful grid analytics capabilities.

The Ambient Smart Grid Node family now provides utilities with even greater choice for reliable and efficient management of multiple smart grid applications through a single infrastructure that uses an open IP-based architecture.

The Ambient Smart Grid Nodes are purpose-built network devices, all with advanced processing capability and memory that, along with the AmbientNMS , deliver benefits of distributed intelligence grid architecture. Applications developed for the Ambient Smart Grid platform can be run on all three types of node. They deliver upstream and downstream high-speed data communications using a variety of wired and wireless technologies, including serial, Ethernet, PLC, cellular, Wi-Fi or RF. Each node is a modular device that can be configured for different roles within the network and is suitable for targeted or scale deployments. They are easy to install and allow for rapid deployment.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
