Voltera Power, a developer, owner, and operator of charging and refuelling infrastructure for fleets of zero-emission vehicles, is partnering with Zayo, a provider of communications infrastructure, to bring advanced connectivity to its electric vehicle (EV) charging and hydrogen refuelling facilities located across the US.
To accomplish a net-zero transportation system, reliable charging, refuelling infrastructure, and network connectivity are needed. Voltera and Zayo are working together to include broadband network availability to mitigate connectivity challenges early on, reducing cost and improving time to market for zero-emissions fleets.
“Site selection is a complex process that can incur significant costs before breaking ground,” said Steve Renda, head of Commercial Operations at Voltera. “By including broadband availability in our site evaluation process, Voltera can reduce the cost and time involved in site selection.
Zayo will provide essential connectivity to support Voltera’s fuelling, charging, and site operations, and also enable high-bandwidth and secure data transfer for Voltera’s fleet customers. With the ability to quickly expand capacity at Voltera’s locations, Zayo’s connectivity infrastructure and solutions will ensure performance at peak demand times of day while also supporting the ever-increasing bandwidth requirements of vehicle data uploads and software downloads.
“Our partnership with Zayo also allows fleet managers to address their communications and charging/refuelling requirements as part of a single, bundled solution, making the adoption of new technologies and vehicles that much simpler,” added Renda.
“High-capacity network infrastructure is critical to enable a timely and efficient zero-emission vehicle future,” added Brian Daniels, chief sales officer with Strategic Accounts at Zayo. “Working together, Voltera and Zayo can evaluate a fleet’s specific network needs, and design, implement, and operate connected solutions that support our customer’s needs, up to and including multi-gigabyte services.”
Both companies are backed by global investment organization EQT and committed to delivering sustainable solutions to support the digital future.
“Voltera and Zayo’s partnership is an astute example of how our family of investment companies are fast-tracking critical energy transition infrastructure to make a net-zero future a reality,” said Jan Vesely, partner at EQT.
