"Certification of the Ambient Smart Grid Nodes to operate on a 4G LTE network
is a significant benefit for our utility customers," stated John J. Joyce,
President and CEO of Ambient Corporation.

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the fastest growing and most advanced wireless
network technology available, offering speeds up to ten times faster than 3G
while providing significantly lower latency. LTE, an all-IP network, 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," said Ram Rao, Ambient
Corporation's Chief Technology Officer. "The flexibility of a high-speed
cellular connection with greater signal penetration capabilities allow
numerous applications to run simultaneously, while providing connectivity to
head-end systems, and supporting a distributed intelligence framework."

Ambient Corporation helps utilities modernize the grid with IP-based
networking products and applications that integrate and connect existing and
future grid assets on a single, secure, flexible, and scalable smart grid
communications platform. Ambient's Smart Grid Node family enables real time
data communication for multiple applications, in parallel; gas, water, and
electric metering, demand response, and distribution automation.
