Powerline broadband: "Ambient Corporation Receives Key License from FCC"

From the company's press release:

"Ambient Corporation, a leader in Power Line Communications (PLC) technology, today announced that the company has been approved for a nationwide license by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The nationwide license allows Ambient to initiate field trials with partners anywhere in the United States without having to apply for individual licenses for each trial."

"'This unique license represents a significant strategic accomplishment for us in that it enables the establishment of additional trials and pilots with our strategic partners nationwide' stated John J. Joyce, CEO of Ambient. 'The license will allow us to further test our PLC technology and network architecture in several pilots in various geographical regions of the country in the near future.'"

"Ambient recently announced a partnership with IDACOMM, Inc., a subsidiary of IDACORP, Inc., to initiate pilot tests of Broadband over Power Line (BPL) technology in Idaho. Ambient is currently conducting field trials with Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc., (Con Edison) a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc., and Southern Telecom Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Southern Company. CAM, a subsidiary of Enersis S.A., is also testing Ambient's technology in their trial underway in Santiago, Chile."
