Jasper Wireless has signed up Telenor to its cloud-based machine-to-machine (M2M) platform and added new features.
Telenor Connexion, the Norway-based operator's M2M division, said that that the deal will allow it to expand its existing portfolio of connected services targeted at enterprises making the transition to connected businesses.
Per Simonsen, CEO, Telenor Connexion, commented: "Telenor was one of the first operators in the world to strategically target the M2M market and has a track record of innovation and leadership. We're delighted to be working with Jasper to help our customers compete and win in the global M2M and IoT arena."
Telenor Connexion joins a growing list of other Jasper operator partners including AT&T, América Móvil, NTT DOCOMO, Telefónica, VimpelCom, KPN, SingTel, Etisalat, Telstra, Rogers, CSL and more.
In addition, Jasper Wireless unveiled two enhancements to its platform: Jasper Alliance Manager, a new IoT and M2M software module that enables mobile operators to form alliances with any other operator; and Jasper Global SIM, which allows enterprises to manage a single embedded SIM by remotely provisioning and managing mobile operator profiles and policies for that SIM anywhere in the world.
"Multinational enterprises are using IoT today to get closer to their customers and deliver real, productive value on a mass global scale," said Ken Laversin, Global Vice President, Sales at Jasper.
Research firm iDate suggests that Europe will be the most valuable region in a global M2M market worth €40 billion in 2017.
