Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform for machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer electronics, today announced that Optus Business has adopted the Jasper platform to wirelessly connect machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer electronics devices.
Jasper Wireless’ ability extends to a variety of M2M connections including but not limited to telematics, consumer electronics and m-health. The Jasper Wireless platform will provide Optus Business with the applications and services necessary to deliver new categories of connected devices on its network, as well as connect and manage a range of embedded wireless devices.
“M2M communications come into their own in remote or scarcely populated environments. Australia is a vast area and so delivering communications brings with it a whole host of unique challenges,” said Cindy Patterson, Chief Revenue Officer, Jasper Wireless.
“The partnership provides Optus Business with the applications and services necessary to accelerate market entry of new categories of connected devices and profitably connect and manage a range of embedded wireless devices.”
As consumer electronics and M2M devices come to market with embedded connectivity, market success depends on finding the right business models to service different verticals and consumers globally. Jasper Wireless has developed the applications and services that support highly flexible business models as well as the automation of operational processes, 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.
Phil Offer, Vice President of Mobility and Convergence, Optus Business, said:
“The Jasper platform provides powerful intelligence with a live view of how devices are connecting to and using the network. By automating operational processes, it will enable us to streamline M2M deployments, reduce total cost of ownership and provide excellent customer experience.”
“With SingTel and Optus now using Jasper Wireless as our common M2M platform, we can deliver regional M2M services to business customers.”
Optus Business joins a growing list of other Jasper Wireless operator partners including AT&T, América Móvil, NTT DOCOMO, Telefónica, VimpelCom, KPN, SingTel, Rogers, CSL and more.
