Itron just announced that it is partnering with Ambient Corporation to integrate Itron’s smart grid and AMI components with Ambient’s smart grid communications platform. The partnership, created under a memorandum of understanding signed by both companies, will allow Itron and Ambient to join together and provide a complete smart grid system for utility customers.

The agreement will integrate Itron’s OpenWay advanced metering application with Ambient’s Smart Grid communications technology. This will enable legacy equipment to be connected with advanced smart energy applications, broadening the reach of both company’s products.

In a press release, executives from both companies commented on the agreement:

Itron North America senior vice president and chief operating officer Philip Mezey said, “This is further proof that the OpenWay architecture is adaptable to multiple networks in support of smart grid deployments. Building the smart grid requires unprecedented collaboration. Our partnership with Ambient will help both our companies extend smart grid benefits to more energy users.”

John J. Joyce, president and chief executive officer of Ambient, said, “This partnership brings together Itron’s core consumer and commercial AMI technologies with Ambient’s high-capacity communications network for a complete ‘utility to the home’ smart grid solution.”
