Thanks to Wireless Logic, we are always connected. As Wireless Logic have written in their case study, they have provided us with an un-steered roaming solution using 4G cellular connectivity. This means that our Charge Points in more rural locations have a stronger, more reliable connection. Due to the increasing number of EV charge points in the UK and the EU in rural areas where fixed line is rarely available, we needed a cellular connectivity solution that connects through one SIM without working out which SIM to install in different locations.
This un-steered roaming solution has a Fixed Private IP. This means it is secure for two-way communication and makes it in line with Open Charge Point Protocol 1.6 and 2.0.
We have saved operational costs as we have not had to send maintenance engineers out to locations. We receive alerts on maintenance issues and data overage. Electric Vehicle users, especially those in the country need reassurance that their EV Charge Point is fully functioning.
Now we are partnering with a major supermarket chain to provide cellular connected EV Charge Points, allowing customers to charge their cars while they shop.
