POST Luxembourg and Jasper Partner to Drive Connected Car Services and Mobile Internet of Things
MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, BARCELONA, Spain, 25 February 2014 – Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the mobile Internet of Things, today announced an agreement with POST Luxembourg to power Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services for both its international and local enterprise customers. POST Luxembourg is the country's largest provider of telecommunications/ICT services.
The cloud-based Jasper Platform is designed for enterprises across all vertical sectors, from automotive to consumer electronics and from utilities to transportation and logistics. The IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M market is seeing continued significant growth, with industries such as Connected Car forecast globally to be worth €39 billion by 2018, up from €13 billion in 2012, according to automotive research firm SBD. To date, over 2500 enterprises have standardized on the Jasper platform across 16 mobile operator groups worldwide.
"The Connected Car market is a perfect example of mobile IoT service, and why enterprises such as auto makers need a single cloud-based platform that can support their business across multiple markets. A car manufactured in one country can be sold in another, and then driven into yet another," said Ken Laversin, Global Vice President, Sales at Jasper. "Throughout the whole lifecycle of the vehicle, the car manufacturer needs to be able to launch, manage and monetize the connected service, delivering a consistent experience wherever the car is driven. We're delighted to welcome POST Luxembourg to the global network of Jasper partners, enabling it to service both international and local customers and lead its M2M market."
"As the country's leading operator, multinational enterprises look to us when launching connected services into Luxembourg," said Jean-Marie Spaus, Director, member of the POST Luxembourg management board. "Take PSA Peugeot Citroën as an example. It is at the forefront innovation in the Connected Car market and working with Jasper means we can enable it to seamlessly extend its services to all markets, including Luxembourg. We're delighted to be partnering with Jasper to open up the M2M market here to leading international brands and so ensure that our customers continue to receive a service that is among the best in the world."
The Jasper Platform provides enterprises with the ability to deliver revenue-producing, differentiated service features that build brand loyalty. It provides everything an enterprise needs to launch, manage and monetize a connected services business, including custom device provisioning, instant activation, real-time diagnostic tools and detailed billing and usage reports, ensuring a superior out-of-box end-user experience. Jasper has developed the applications and services that support the highly flexible business models required for IoT services, as well as the automation of operational processes that lie behind them for both the mobile operator and the enterprise customers.
POST Luxembourg 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.
