Beta Testing Plan

As the Beta Testing proceeds, United Chargers has outlined the following plan for future updates:

  1. The first update implement the USB software update functionality. 
  2. The second update will have bug fixes found during the initial beta testing phase
  3. The third update will seek to have the Audio and Reports fully functional. During this phase, we will introduce an additional 80 Beta testers to the program.
  4. The fourth update will enable Wi-Fi and Lan Internet connectivity for Alpha and connection to the Portal.
  5. The fifth update will bring OCPP integration so Alpha can be connected to other OCPP software.
  6. The sixth update will add other languages to the Alpha – French and Spanish are expected to be added first.

This will conclude the Beta testing and Alpha will go into production.
Ongoing development will continue as Alpha goes into production to bring all multimedia features and peripherals integration to make the Alpha EVSE into the complete Smart Home central hub.
