What cellular IoT connectivity can do for EV charging station operations

Introducing cellular IoT to electric vehicle charging stations

As production of electricity-powered vehicles accelerates, so does the need for EV charging stations. In this case study, we explore the challenges facing EV charging companies, and how cellular IoT connectivity allows for more effective operations, maintenance, and improves customer experience, while also decreasing monitoring costs and increasing annual revenue.

Industry insights

Addressing the challenges

The EU directive is to ban production of fossil-fueled cars by 2035, forcing EV charging companies to address the challenges facing them to meet the demand. To avoid profit loss, it is crucial to figure out where the demand is. Maintenance is costly and, without the chance to address issues remotely, it takes a long time as service providers need to send personnel out.

These are a few of the problems facing EV charging companies, and cellular IoT connectivity can turn these challenges into something manageable and optimizable.
