2,500 Enterprises Worldwide Rely on Jasper Wireless to Manage Connected Devices
Proven platform drives global commercialisation for companies in a broad range of industries
MOUNTAIN VIEW USA, 19 February 2013 – Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform for machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer electronics, has announced that more than 2,500 enterprises are now leveraging its cloud-based Control Center platform to connect millions of devices across six continents on its mobile operator partner networks. Over 1,800 of these enterprises are live and billable, with the remainder in various stages of development and deployment.
Introduced in 2005, the Jasper Wireless Control Center platform fully integrates with the mobile operator network to put the enterprise in control. This turnkey approach enables the enterprise to successfully build, launch, manage and scale its connected device business and bring devices to market in weeks instead of months. The cloud-based platform allows enterprises to offer end-users a zero-touch, out of box experience at the lowest possible TCO with no upfront costs. Jasper provides the common platform currently being standardised on by operators worldwide and enterprises recognise the opportunity it offers for much faster and easier global expansion.
“Jasper Wireless is a trusted partner of Garmin International in the M2M connectivity space,” said Dawn Iddings, Vice President of Business Development at Garmin. “As the global leader in satellite navigation, Garmin sought a partner that would serve and enhance our worldwide distribution with an M2M platform that was easily managed across carriers internationally. This qualification was met by Jasper Wireless and Garmin’s utilisation of its M2M Platform has been in place since 2008.”
The Jasper Wireless platform provides enterprises with distinct core capabilities and advantages over other connectivity solutions:
• 1) Intelligence: Analyse and control how devices work in the field so you can respond in real-time to market conditions and customers
• 2) Automation: Set custom actions to trigger when critical events occur so you can scale operations while driving value to the bottom line
• 3) Empowerment: Manage your business directly with robust self-service applications, so you can take control of your own business processes
The self-service Control Center, as branded by mobile operators, provides capabilities for provisioning, customer care, subscription management and cost management, among other operational functions.
Advanced automation makes it incredibly efficient—which translates to minimised costs and maximised revenue. As a result, enterprises can gain immediate control over every aspect of their connected device initiative. The cloud platform provides a central location to view communication status, control service costs and manage SIM activity.
“The Control Center platform is one of the best in the business. Our team relies heavily on the tools that are available to manage our devices on the network. Most important are the tools that allow us to manage and minimise monthly service and operational costs,” said Bernard Arroyo, Technical Solutions Director, Spireon Inc., an industry leading Mobile Resource Management (MRM) company with over 1.5 million active subscribers.
For those in initial prototyping, testing and piloting, Jasper Wireless together with its operator partners host the developer community at M2M.com. M2M.com provides the information and developer kits to de-risk the development of machine-to-machine, embedded wireless and connected consumer devices, accelerate the time to market and support the delivery of a great user experience. Tens of thousands of developers take advantage of this resource each month.
“We are excited to announce this great milestone. It is indicative of the value that our platform – alongside operator networks – can really deliver. Enterprises choose the Control Center platform because its innovative capabilities help deliver competitive advantage and commercial success,” said Cindy Patterson, Chief Revenue Officer, Jasper Wireless. “Every day we’re adding to our comprehensive knowledge of global enterprises – their needs, their language and their challenges – and using this to improve our platform.”
Created in 2005, Jasper Wireless is now established as the leading connected devices platform in the world. Jasper Wireless collaborates with operators worldwide to accelerate market entry for connected consumer devices and enterprise applications, with national and multi-national enterprises, in sectors such as automotive, smart grid, tracking, security and mobile healthcare.
