Accessible electric vehicle charging through smart and secure communication
Communication between the charging stations and the operations center is an important part of Voltiva's offering. With the help of the AddSecure Link solution, Voltiva can ensure connectivity and secure communication between the charging points and their system platform.
Accessible electric vehicle charging with smart charging systems
In Solna, Stockholm, Voltiva has been tasked with installing charging stations in the Laboratoriet housing cooperative. In the garage which has 100 spaces, the cooperative has chosen Voltiva to invest in charging stations for all parking spots.
The solution consists of 100 charging outlets, connected to Voltiva’s operations center using AddSecure Link. This allows the operations center to have full control over the functionality of the charging stations and receive information if any of the charging stations were to malfunction.
“We exclusively work with smart connected charging systems, which means the charger is always in contact with our system platform. The collaboration we have with AddSecure enables a very smooth local installation for our partners who set up SIM cards and perform the local system configuration. And most importantly, it allows our central staff to administer the cards and accounts we have in Link Manager,” explains Mikael Ring, CEO and co-founder of Voltiva.
In the housing cooperative, all parking spaces have been equipped with charging outlets. With the help of smart and secure communication, Voltiva can have complete control over the charging stations from their central operations center.
Why did Voltiva choose Addecure as a partner?
Scalability, secure communication, and cost control were crucial factors when it came to Voltiva’s collaboration with AddSecure. With a growing business and an increasing number of charging points, it needs to be easy to activate and manage subscriptions. And to ensure the functionality of the charging systems, they need full control over the systems through secure connectivity and communication.
The increased usage of electric cars places high demands on a smart infrastructure for electric car charging.
Voltiva is a provider of property-close electric vehicle charging, delivering complex charging systems with operations. They take full responsibility for both the technical aspect of installation and functionality, as well as the end user’s experience with payment flow systems and access to the chargers.
The company was founded in 2020, and today Voltiva is present throughout Sweden with several thousand charging points where they provide operation and payment services, both through self-delivered systems and third-party systems.
How Voltiva contributes to a safer and smarter Society
With the increasing use of electric vehicles, a high demand for charging facilities follows. This also brings a huge demand to match the needs with a smart charging infrastructure.
“Developing a high-quality and reliable infrastructure for electric vehicle charging is an important part of the transition we are facing. At Voltiva, we see that we have an important task in this,” says Mikael.
