EV: Future-Proof Your EV Business with the Right Connectivity Solution

Companies are racing to install electric vehicle charging stations across highways, major roads, and cities, and those in this space need to make sure they are well-suited to solve current challenges and be prepared for the technological needs of the future. A focal point for entering the market or remaining relevant is the consideration of EV charging infrastructure, which involves connectivity and communication capabilities.

There is a perception that cable connections offer better reliability of data transfer than cellular options, and that this type of connectivity is less costly.  But fixed wired connectivity is not always available, especially in remote, rural areas. And although wireless connectivity might represent an additional cost in terms of construction and maintenance of charging points –not to mention cellular data usage fees– their versatility and ease of deployment makes them extremely attractive. Cellular connectivity is also useful as a back-up to fixed connectivity so that charge points remain operational in the event of a primary connectivity outage.

Improved User Experience

Companies in the EV charging space can set themselves up for success by investing in future-proof technology that allows them to grow with the market. Currently, EV charging stations are providing a basic service to EV owners, but the capabilities provided by a connected wireless network offers additional benefits to solution providers and customers alike.

Real-Time Monitoring

Wireless connectivity allows for remote real-time monitoring and management of charging stations, maintenance alerts, and advanced payment capabilities. For drivers, this translates into the ability to locate charging spots, booking spots and pay using a mobile app.

A Smarter Solution

Cellular wireless technology allows for capabilities that go beyond just charging. Administrators can take control of the charging process by covering front-end communication between the EV charging station and vehicle, as well as back-end communication between the charging station and the cloud.

Smart EV charging with private wireless connectivity provides a secure, scalable solution that reduces footprint size. A private connection reduces the exposure to hacking. Wireless connectivity allows for easy communication between charge points, allowing for energy distribution amongst connected units. In addition, a reduced need for wires reduces electric constraints within the unit and charge locations.
