Business Challenge

The client wanted to adopt a pay-per-use business model for their electric charging systems

In its pursuit of digital transformation, the client wanted active management of assets with energy metering to monitor and control energy usage as well as to bill customers for the usage of this general service. They were looking for a technical partner to architect a multitenant cloud-based IoT software application service to manage their electric charging solution and its resources using a web portal.

Data protection was yet another challenge faced by the client due to the shared responsibility model and automation of the public cloud infrastructure. Given the sensitive nature of their business, the client wanted to ensure consistent security and compliance measures across their infrastructure for which they required a new methodology.

Our Solution

SecureKloud drives transformation with an end-to-end cloud-based IoT solution

As a cloud-native digital transformation enabler with deep IoT expertise, the SecureKloud team was able to design a hierarchical multi-tenancy architecture solution that ensures zero downtime. After an in-depth analysis of the client’s requirements, our team quickly put in place a scalable, resilient, secure, cloud-based IoT solution, integrated with their charging stations at customers’ premises such as airports, shopping malls, etc. The solution ecosystem includes various OEMs, end-users, and third-party service providers.

The new IoT module provides real-time visibility and acts as a middleware between the charger and the cloud.

It pulls data from the charger periodically to display information like details of vehicles connected to the charging units, energy consumed by the vehicle, etc., to the cloud. As part of the solution, we also designed and developed a web portal to monitor and manage the charging stations.

A simple web portal with a dashboard was developed, which not only collects information to publish on the dashboard but also monitors and manages the chargers. For instance, the web portal is responsible for sending the authorization instructions to the IoT device for each vehicle in terms of permission to use the charger and also upgrades of the firmware over-the-air (OTA).

Additional services we delivered:

  • Migrated their existing legacy applications to the AWS cloud
  • 24*7 support services to diagnose operational glitches
  • End-to-end technical support including Level 1 to Level 3 assistance for infrastructure security, troubleshooting, and monitoring cloud resources and automation solutions.

The monitoring dashboard displays the current operational status of the infrastructure including availability, performance, security, etc., and was observed 24*7 to ensure that the resources stay healthy. We also guaranteed that the entire infrastructure has a strong security underpinning along with compliance checks to maintain their security and compliance posture.
