Connectivity management for EV charging stations

Do EV Charging Stations Need A Connectivity Management Platform?

To operate smartly, third-generation chargers require power, payment methods, and connectivity. It could be tough for drivers to access the chargers if they are not connected. Remote diagnostics and troubleshooting becomes a problem without connected chargers. Typically, all of this calls for continuous network accessibility. 

Cellular Connectivity For EV Charging Stations

With evolved eUICC technology, cellular connectivity has opened new realms of possibilities for EV charging stations. You can switch connectivity providers remotely without having to physically change SIM cards. All you need is a connectivity management platform to switch between multiple network providers, pre-integrated in the ecosystem.
