DNA has teamed up with Cisco to launch an IoT service for Finnish businesses, as well as joining a global alliance of operators focused on the Internet of Things.

The operator's enterprise customers in the country will now be able to launch and manage their own IoT services built around the Cisco Jasper platform.

The offering includes the Control Center feature, which provides visibility and control over IoT services both in Finland and worldwide.

DNA said the solution was targeted at all industries.

Cisco Jasper is used by over 55 service providers globally, including the likes of Three, which launched its own IoT service using Cisco Jasper across its 12 mobile markets back in March.

Esa Kinnunen, Director, IoT Sales and solutions at DNA, said: “We want to accelerate the development of Finnish IoT innovations by launching a versatile, cloud-based and continuously developing ecosystem for automatic connectivity management by a global market leader.

“Together with Cisco Jasper, we are able to provide our customers with optimal capabilities for the development of IoT solutions and their efficient scalability for Finnish and international markets.”

Kalle Ward, Managing Director for EMEAR at Cisco IoT, said the collaboration would allow innovative businesses in Finland to scale new services globally.

DNA also announced today it has become the first Finnish operator to join the IoT World Alliance.

The global coalition of operators pools connectivity and management services worldwide to offer seamless capabilities to multinational companies.
