This marks a step forward in the company's commitment to advancing the interoperability and security of EV charging solutions and reinforcing its leadership in the EV charging industry.

OCPP 2.0.1, the latest version of Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) released by OCA in 2020, is the globally recognised standard for effective communication between charging stations and charging station management software. The protocol provides advanced smart charging capabilities and enhanced control features for utilities, Charge Point Operators (CPO), and EV owners. To date, only 14 companies worldwide have achieved this certification.

Autel Energy’s CSMS has successfully completed the Core and Advanced Security profiles of OCPP 2.0.1, demonstrating robust security measures and seamless interoperability. Additionally, Autel has finalised the development for the remaining six profiles of OCPP 2.0.1 and is poised to achieve full certification as soon as OCA opens the certification process for these profiles.

By achieving the OCPP 2.0.1 certification, Autel guarantees enhanced security through the implementation of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol, which supports mandatory encryption and authentication mechanisms. By utilising standardised communication protocols, the CSMS guarantees efficient and reliable data transmission, with all data transmissions between the charging station and the cloud encrypted to prevent data leakage, tampering, and attacks.

The two-way authentication between the charging station and cloud system ensures that both ends of the communication are trusted, preventing unauthorised device access. Offering strong interoperability and excellent system stability, the CSMS can seamlessly integrate charging equipment from different manufacturers, ensuring wide compatibility, versatility, and high stability and reliability.
