A. Smart Meters are not the same as Ambient Communication Nodes.
B. When you have THE ONLY commercially deployed to scale communication node, you don't need to do a field trial proof of concept deployment, like Cisco, Itron and Echelon do.

Now that its longtime CTO has left, what is Ambient's future? Q&A with new CTO David Masters
Q: Tell us about your career at Duke Energy.
Masters: I spent 30 years at Duke, primarily working in the telecommunications field. I retired from there in January of this year. For part of that time, seven or eight years, we had a telecommunications fiber business. Then I moved to research and development, but still focused primarily on telecommunications.
Q: Duke is Ambient’s biggest customer, is that right?
Masters: That’s correct, but we’re also engaged with some new companies and other existing companies in Europe and North America, and that’s all very active.
Q: What prompted you to move to Ambient?
Masters: It was an opportunity that was presented to me after retirement. I’d already worked with the company from several years while I was with Duke, and I liked the technology.
No Prospects??? Only a 24/7gayflakebasher fear and doubt clown could say that.
At DistribuTECH, Ambient Corporation and the “Coalition of the Willing” (COW) group - Accenture, Alstom Grid, Duke Energy, Echelon, S&C, and Verizon – will show how interoperable hardware, software and systems from multiple suppliers can be used to build a distributed-intelligence platform to make interoperability a reality and improve grid management for the utility by:
- eliminating silos,
- improving grid performance,
- enabling interoperability between grid assets,
- reducing costs,
- and increasing security.
Relevant Technical Papers
Within the conference program, the following technical presentations will explain the lower costs and faster response times achieved by Duke Energy and its partners using Ambient’s Communication Node and a standards-based messaging architecture to connect disparate assets, data, and control commands across multiple platforms.

"Potential" "Testing" LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is why DUKE WON'T BE talking about its success with Cisco.
DUKE WILL BE talking About its success with Ambient!
The IR 500 could dramatically expand Cisco’s list of potential mesh-able partners, however, by providing a gateway to connect DA devices to its IPv6 networks. Right now, Cisco is testing the router with BC Hydro, which has a fully deployed network, and National Grid, which got started on a Worcester, Mass. pilot last year.
Cisco hasn’t announced any device vendors using the IR 500 yet, but it does have a long list of partners that could find it useful.
