EVBox has recently become one of the first EV charging station manufacturers to have their hardware officially OCPP-certified. While that may sound like a lot of industry jargon (because, frankly, it is), it’s also tremendously important.
But before we get into that, let’s go over exactly what OCPP is.
What is OCPP?
The Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) is an open-source communication standard for EV charging stations and network software companies, allowing them to integrate freely with one another.
Simply put, an OCPP-certified hardware company can host any OCPP-certified network software—and vice versa. As a free and readily available open standard used by some of the largest players in the EV space, OCPP has become the benchmark for interoperability amongst charging service providers.
