KORE Providing Connectivity to Charging Stations, Growing Electric Vehicle Enablement

Overview

The market for electric vehicles is projected to grow but moving through the hype cycle has been difficult. Car Charged UK, an award-winning Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station company is working to make the realisation of EVs come true.

While early adopters have helped make the business case for EVs, moving into mass adoption remains a struggle due to the lack of convenient charging stations. The onus of charging is mostly put upon the owner of the vehicle.

The Challenge

Deploying widespread charging stations, however, is not a linear path and has its own set of difficulties. For Car Charged UK, finding reliable connectivity for charging stations amidst a fragmented cellular network ecosystem, as well as mitigating other issues like signal penetrability was an issue.

For example, in dense urban areas like London, most vehicles are parked in underground carparks or basements reinforced with thick cement and steel. A car charging station would need deeply penetrative signals for reliable connectivity in those conditions.

Resilient cellular signal is needed twofold. The first is ergonomics. Being able to place charging stations in residential areas while being visually discreet will give greater success in widespread adoption, according to Lionel Mathia, Founder and Managing Director of Car Charged UK.

“Pivoting car charging stations to wireless technology will enable the UK’s estimated 8 million electric cars owners without off-street parking to access more charging points nearer their home to charge fairly, safely, and with no visual impact, which will have a substantial effect on turning the tide of climate change,”

Lionel Mathia said.

The second importance of reliable cellular connectivity is the charging stations send data leveraged in customer support, billing, and predictive maintenance of the charging units.

The Solution

KORE provided hardware (including routers and antennas) that drive high reliability “smart roaming” technology, as well as multi-network, resilient connectivity for full coverage in all locations. KORE has enabled charging stations to connect to 2G, 3G, and 4G across all network operators, which means more comprehensive coverage no matter the network conditions.

The Result

Because of KORE, Car Charged UK is able to provide groundbreaking solutions that are aimed to help the widespread adoption of EVs. Customer experience from Car Charged UK is heightened by the KORE connectivity that allows SMS messaging. SMS messages can be sent to the active equipment to diagnose problems and fix them remotely, which means no site visits and significantly less waiting for the end user.

Car Charged UK is helping clients explore charging infrastructure, charging management, automotive and new mobility, and visioning concepts for the future of EV charging.
