Ambient Corp. announced availability of its Smart Meter Communications Module, using Powerline Communications (PLC) technology to connect new or existing meters.

Ambient has collaborated with EnVerv to offer a field-tested Smart Meter Communications Module that meets the expectations of utility customers, in line with the specificities of their markets, including worldwide frequency support for CENELEC, FCC and ARIB powerline bands.
