EV Charging Solution Building Blocks

EV charging relies on robust connectivity in extreme environments. IoT modules offer flexibility by utilizing global LTE Cat 1 and 4, cellular LPWA and 5G standards. Industrial Wi-Fi modules are required for multiple local networking use cases.

Critical industrial devices require specialized connectivity for reliability in hard-to-reach locations. A long-term strategy for seamless and adaptive connectivity is crucial. EV charging stations must maintain consistent service quality across multiple mobile network operators.

Device management is essential for successful, secure EV charging deployments. OneEdge™, powered by Telit Cinterion, delivers over-the-air connectivity, security and maintenance campaigns for CPOs.

EV charging infrastructure requires a hardware base up to the task. Our design and manufacturing services ensure quality and reliability over the entire product life cycle, regardless of complexity or scale.

Ensuring your EV charging solution is secure by design is critical. The building blocks for resilient EV infrastructures must be founded on trust. Partner with a trusted provider to secure your EV charging deployment.

The Importance of Future-Proof Technologies for EV Charging Infrastructure

EV charge point service-level agreements (SLAs) demand a reliable, secure connection with high availability.

  • Over time, the industry anticipates:
  • Increased connectivity
  • Higher real-time data volumes
  • More detailed analytics

A robust cellular connectivity infrastructure helps EV charging companies win contracts and mitigate the penalty risks from falling short of SLAs.

We offer a complete future-proof connectivity solution from inception throughout the entire life cycle for your specific use case. We provide the most up-to-date network technologies, including:

  • 2G, 3G and 4G
  • Cat M and NB-IoT
  • Multi-IMSI
  • eUICC
  • Embedded connectivity

Superior Service Advantage with Always-On Connectivity

Even a small delay in EV charging can result in significant downtime and revenue loss over a year or more. In addition, these delays can accumulate and cause frustrating queues. Waits can result in customers choosing alternative providers.

Selecting the right vendor with reliable, secure solutions impacts the bottom line and strengthens the brand reputation. Customers will migrate to competitors with faster services if a charge point is temperamental or slow.
