The Open Charge Point Protocol is an application protocol for communication between Electric vehicle charging stations and a central management system, also known as a charging station network, similar to cell phones and cell phone networks.
Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) gives you the power to choose your own network provider, and the freedom to switch your service at any time — no vendor lock-in.
Remember when you first bought a cell phone and it only worked with one carrier? You were locked into their service package no matter what.
The Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) makes sure that you can switch between hardware and software providers without your investment becoming obsolete. It's as simple as switching the SIM card in your phone.
BTC Power utilizes open standards like OCPP because it increases interoperability and accelerates EV adoption
