Telenor Norway picks Cisco Jasper to power enterprise IoT offering

M2M

Telenor Norway is the latest operator to sign up to use Cisco Jasper’s IoT platform, as it looks to target enterprises.

The company will link its mobile network to Cisco Jasper’s Control Centre solution in a bid to push businesses to launch IoT services.

It follows the launch earlier this week by Telenor Group of a new platform aimed at developers to build IoT products and services.

“Businesses throughout Norway are eager to embrace IoT because they understand that, as more devices get connected, business value shifts from the products themselves to the services that are delivered through them,” said Ove Fredheim, Senior Vice President and Head of the Business Division at Telenor Norway.

“Companies are increasingly focused on offering services that generate recurring, post-sale revenues.”

For its part, Telenor Norway saw revenues fall 1.9 percent to NOK26 billion last year.

Kalle Ward, Managing Director, EMEAR at Cisco Jasper, said: “Our collaboration with Telenor will help enable Norwegian businesses to drive industry transformation, introduce new business models and create never-before-seen experiences for their customers.”

Financial details of the contract were not disclosed.

Cisco Jasper won a similar deal with Three last month as the mobile operator looks to offer IoT services across its global footprint.

It now has over 50 operator customers around the world.
