EV charge points: Gaining a commercial edge through connectivity
How IoT connectivity could be a key differentiating factor for your EV charging deployment and increase ROI
EV charge points need to be connected for many reasons, from processing payments and reporting errors to communicating availability to drivers.
It can be tempting to think of connectivity as an afterthought, something as simple as sticking a SIM card in. But off-the-shelf connectivity products are not designed with EV charge points in mind, so are only ever a basic solution.
The result is imperfect connectivity and only a maximum of 90% uptime. This might sound quite high. But for every 10 charges, that’s one unnecessary delay and one annoyed customer. Over a charge point’s lifetime of 10-15 across thousands of chargers, that’s a big margin for improvement.
