SAN DIEGO and NEWTON, Mass., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ambient Corporation
(NASDAQ: AMBT), provider of a secure, flexible, and scalable smart grid
communications and applications platform, announced today the further
development of AmbientPQM™, an advanced Power Quality Monitoring solution that
enables enhanced grid visibility for utilities.

This latest development, M-PQM, is an enhancement of the existing solution,
which enables the monitoring of multiple sources of power quality data in both
the medium- and low-voltage distribution grid simultaneously.

AmbientPQM is a combination of software and hardware (PQM application, and
Ambient Smart Grid^® Nodes and Sensors) that enables utilities to measure an
array of power quality parameters on medium- and/or low-voltage distribution
grids, on overhead or underground lines, and at distribution transformers.

AmbientPQM Benefits:

  oRemote monitoring in real time
  oExtensive power quality parameters accurately measured for actionable data
  oSupports Volt VAR Optimization
  oProvides early warning of power quality issues
  oHelps prevent outages and protect assets
  oEnhances speed of restoration after outages, reducing Customer Minutes
    Lost (CML)
  oEasy and quick installation with no outage required
  oPart of an extensible and flexible platform for multiple smart grid
    applications, optimizing return on investment (ROI)

Ambient's Chief Technology Officer, Ram Rao, said, "This additional capability
of our application reinforces the flexibility of the Ambient Smart Grid
platform to provide invaluable information to maintain and improve efficiency
and reliability for grid infrastructure. AmbientPQM facilitates real-time
visibility to help deal with the multiple challenges faced by the distribution
grid. It can be a vital component in helping to avoid outages and quickly
restore power when they occur, resulting in better customer service."

AmbientPQM is an application that is hosted on the Ambient Smart Grid Nodes™
and integrated within the Ambient AmbientNMS^® (Network Management System) to
facilitate configuration, management, analysis, and transfer of collected data
on required sensing parameters. Data collection, reporting, and alerts for
each of the sensing parameters are highly configurable and allow users to
define configurations as required.

All of Ambient's products and solutions will be on display at DistribuTECH,
January 29-31, 2012, in San Diego, CA in booth #1342.
