    Intro

    The rapid development of electric mobility presents new demands on infrastructure, especially regarding the availability and functionality of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. In this dynamic environment, Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity plays a key role by enabling smart and efficient management of the charging infrastructure. IoT technology connects charging stations to central management systems, facilitates real-time data transmission, and ensures optimized usage and maintenance of charging points. The goal is to create a seamless charging experience for the end user while allowing operators of charging infrastructures to efficiently monitor, manage, and scale their facilities. In this use case, we explore how IoT connectivity can address the challenges faced by EV charging stations and provide a future-proof solution for operators and users alike.

    Challenge

    The challenges of connecting charging stations via OCPP to central management systems or backends are varied and complex. They range from selecting suitable gateway hardware and mobile service providers to ensuring security and software updates, as well as to lifecycle management of the devices used. The complexity increases when different manufacturers of charging stations and additional systems are involved, leading to increased coordination and administration efforts. Furthermore, there is a need to prevent tampering and data loss, as well as to maintain specialized personnel for the operation of the IoT infrastructure.
