At AMPECO, we’re always on the hunt for innovative solutions. That’s why we’re excited to announce our strengthened collaboration with EVBox – a partnership that promises to set new industry benchmarks.
AMPECO and EVBox’s strategic move with OCPP 2.0.1
AMPECO and EVBox’s commitment to enhancing electric vehicle charging has taken a significant leap forward. EVBox’s next-gen AC charging stations, the EVBox Livo and EVBox Liviqo, are among the first to adopt the industry’s latest standard: the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP 2.0.1). Through our combined expertise, we have seamlessly integrated these state-of-the-art chargers with the AMPECO EV charging management platform. The result? Advanced smart charging, top-notch security, and a global reach across all countries, supported by both our product lines.
As members of the Open Charge Alliance (OCA), the organization responsible for developing OCPP, EVBox and AMPECO share a commitment to driving innovation, adoption and compliance with industry protocols and standards in EV charging.
Why OCPP 2.0.1 Matters
With OCPP 2.0.1, both charge point operators (CPOs) and EV drivers stand to gain. CPOs can expect to experience an unmatched level of control over their infrastructure. This means they can set tariffs through the charging management software and provide real-time cost and rate information to drivers. Furthermore, they can engage drivers more dynamically by showcasing personalized messages. The robust security features of OCPP 2.0.1 ensure heightened end-to-end protection and enhanced station monitoring—a critical component for large EV charging networks.
Moreover, the protocol streamlines operations, reducing downtime and ensuring cost efficiencies, primarily via its superior remote maintenance capabilities. OCPP 2.0.1 positions CPOs to be future-ready, embracing emerging technologies like ISO 15118. This not only guarantees secure communication but also introduces advanced smart charging functionalities and the convenience of Plug & Charge, further simplifying driver authorization.
Embracing the potential of OCPP 2.0.1
As the EV sector continues to expand rapidly, AMPECO and EVBox are all-in on OCPP 2.0.1. We see its potential to redefine EV charging for operators and its crucial role in spurring industry innovation.
Stefan Ivanov, our Chief Revenue Officer, shares:
“At AMPECO, we are passionate about building the software platform that powers the EV charging of tomorrow and enables large-scale operators to run a global business with unmatched flexibility. As we move forward, it’s evident that OCPP 2.0.1 is the future of our industry, and we’re thrilled to shape it alongside our partner EVBox. By seamlessly integrating our software with their cutting-edge charging stations using OCPP 2.0.1, we’re making EV charging smarter, safer, and more accessible than ever.“
Echoing this sentiment, Natasa Jovanovic, Senior Director of Product Management at EVBox, states:
“EVBox has been making strides in the EV industry for over a decade now, and redefining the OCPP protocol is no exception. As a founding member of the Open Charge Alliance, we not only want to have the most secure and technologically innovative protocol integrated into our EV charging stations but also invite other backends to jump on board with the OCPP 2.0.1 protocol to offer a flexible network to all EV drivers. We strongly believe that the new protocol is the better way forward for our industry and we aspire to motivate other manufacturers and software providers to integrate this standard. We are so happy that AMPECO is joining us for this monumental transition in the EV charging industry by complying with the future-proof OCPP 2.0.1.”
