Accelerate electrification with connected EV chargers

With the growth of charge point communication protocols like OCPP, the EV charging infrastructure has quickly evolved from traditional, non-connected hardware to intelligent devices with communication capabilities. Today’s smart charge points provide real-time, actionable insights that empower automatic billing, remote configuration, efficient servicing, dynamic load management, and digital services for EV drivers.

“Many of our installations take place in parking garages where we often experience connectivity issues. The ability to auto-select the best available network of EMnify IoT SIMs is, therefore, decisive to stable operations of our Aqueduct modules.”

For Charge Point Manufacturers

Upgrading charging products with cellular IoT opens new upsell opportunities and innovative business models like Charge Point as a Service.

For Charge Point Operators

Reliable IoT communication is the key to monetizing, managing, and running distributed charging infrastructure and delivering digital services to EV drivers.

For Smart Charging Software Providers

Bundling global network access with your application reduces complexities and brings added value to your customers.

Challenges

Cellular connectivity has been the most common wireless option for smart EV chargers. But traditional telco services come with multiple operational challenges:

  • Missing indoor and underground coverage that results in lengthy installation processes
  • Limited insights and control over the connectivity of charge points
  • Complex setup of private networks for secure communication and remote access to chargers
  • Rigid, expensive tariff plans that start at high volumes

Why EMnify

 

By using multiple networks and providing LTE-M access, EMnify gives your EV chargers the best cellular coverage - indoors, underground, on urban streets or at motorway service areas.

Our communication platform easily integrates with your management backend to help you secure, monitor and operate your fleet of connected chargers.

“EMnify is a great partner because we can connect chargers no matter where they are in the world. The platform is much easier to integrate with using Cloud Connect via AWS Transit Gateway. We’ve tried other options before (like redundant IPsec tunnels with BGP) but this presents a whole raft of other challenges and complexity. EMnify provides us with a seamless solution that ensures security for our customers.”
