Guildford, UK, 6th May 2015 – Eseye are proud to announce that they are supplying connectivity services to The New Motion, who own one of the largest and fastest growing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging networks in Europe, featuring over 14,000 intelligent charge points. In the years leading to 2018, TechNavio is forecasting a CAGR for Global Electric Vehicle Charger market of 28.8%[i], making this particular market one of the fastest growing Internet of Things (IoT) application areas in the world.
The New Motion have an in-house team known for repeated innovation, demonstrated through product developments and customised solutions. Their independence and device agnosticism have enabled them to build a middleware data management platform that is capable of connecting to all required hardware platforms. In turn, this has allowed the company to run one of Europe’s largest EV networks.
The New Motion benefitted from Eseye’s expertise in supplying connectivity that is tailored to the customer. With business-critical connectivity in each machine to facilitate payment and charging credits it is important to note the suitability of Eseye’s technical and support services; as well as the adherence to the agreed Service Level Agreement for network uptime and reliability. Eseye provide all the services required in one house and everything is managed by one team. The New Motion are said to be very happy with responsiveness and helpfulness of Eseye’s technical support staff provided from one central helpdesk.
Eseye’s roaming, mobile network-agnostic Multi IMSI AnyNet SIM provides reliable mobile network coverage in even the most remote and challenging locations. In addition, all IMSIs are Over-The-Air (OTA) re-programmable which means Eseye is able to help The New Motion future proof the solution without the need to return to site to swap the SIM cards out if they need to switch mobile network providers. This is an important consideration for The New Motion, with Remi Caron, their Chief Technology and Innovation Officer saying, “With each EV charge station expected to have a lifespan of 5-10 years, it is imperative that our suppliers understand our need to have reliable and future proof solutions.”
Not only were Eseye’s services competitively and uniformly priced across all the required territories, the invoicing format helps The New Motion understand and control costs. Alerting on bill increases outside set criteria ensures that costs are confined and the dreaded bill shocks are avoided. Although it varies according to the data usage of different devices, The New Motion estimate that they save several dozen Euro cents per SIM per month on average. In addition, Eseye’s coverage across EU28 means that The New Motion can pool their data charges across the various countries they serve which in turn may help further reduce connectivity charges.
As well as growing its network in the Netherlands, where already two thirds of electric car owners use their charge card, The New Motion is going through expansion throughout Europe, where charge points and charging services are already available to electric car owners. Currently The New Motion charge card can be used at charge points located in Holland, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, the UK and Norway.
“The New Motion are rapidly becoming differentiated leaders in their field. This is as a result of the Innovation and out-of-the-box thinking which drives their business. It was evident from the onset that success in partnering with The New Motion relied on delivering a core managed and highly reliable cellular solution. Eseye’s multi IMSI managed connectivity which is a truly global roaming solution fitted the bill and is now underpinning The New Motion’s worldwide large scale roll-outs.”
