MOUNTAIN VIEW
USA and STOCKHOLM SWEDEN 24 February 2014 – Jasper Wireless, the leading connected
devices platform powering the mobile Internet of Things, and Telenor Connexion, the leading provider of
connected solutions, announced today that the companies have entered into a
strategic partnership to power IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) services
globally. 

Telenor Connexion has chosen the cloud-based Jasper Platform,
designed for enterprises making the transition to connected businesses, to
enrich its existing portfolio of connected solutions, to gain flexibility and
to support its technology agnostic approach. Jasper makes it easy, efficient
and cost effective to implement connected services that bridge the gap between
enterprise and their customers, leverage assets of connectivity to every device
worldwide, and change the way business is done using applications that drive
new sources of revenue and business growth.  To date, over 2500
enterprises have standardized on the Jasper platform across 15 mobile operator
groups worldwide.

“As our global customer base grows so we are
always looking for new ways to help our enterprise customers realize the value
in connected services. Our existing global quality of service and managed
connectivity offering is now complemented by the benefits of the Jasper
platform,” said Per Simonsen, CEO Telenor Connexion.  “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.”

“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.  “Vertical markets such as the automotive
industry are being transformed by IoT service innovations like Connected Car.  However, for enterprises, this means they are
demanding a global platform that can scale across their business and manage the operational processes such as
service provisioning, diagnostics and auditing across all their
international markets.  We’re proud to be
working with Telenor Connexion, one of real innovators in the M2M market, in
delivering a cloud-based platform that will delight their customers.”

As more and more devices come to market with embedded
connectivity, market success depends on finding the right business models to
service different verticals and consumers globally.  Jasper 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.
