Connexion first in the world to offer capabilities from the two leading
Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) platform providers Jasper
Wireless and Ericsson.
Telenor Connexion announced today that the company has
chosen the cloud-based Jasper platform to complement its existing portfolio of
connected business solutions, to gain flexibility and to support its technology
Telenor Connexion already deploys the Ericsson DCP platform, an advanced M2M
dedicated platform the company developed in 2009 and subsequently sold to
Ericsson in 2011.
Companies of all kinds are connecting their products
at an ever accelerating pace. The classic base of industrial M2M applications
is now being joined by a more rapid take-up under the much broader Internet of
Things (IoT) vision in the consumer marketplace.
“We see that the needs vary within different
industries and of different customers. By expanding our capabilities we ensure
that our growing customer base benefits from the best offering possible and can
take advantage of future development. Thereby we keep our leading edge“, says Per Simonsen, CEO of Telenor Connexion.
“Deploying services from the two leading
platform providers ensures greater flexibility and enables us to collaborate
with new partners and operators in global deployments“, continues Simonsen.
The investment is part of Telenor Connexion’s long-term
strategy of becoming technology agnostic, not only when it comes to platforms
but also in bearer technologies etc.
In addition, it strengthens the company’s position for global business and
creates flexibility for customer needs changing over time.
Telenor Connexion is a pioneer in the M2M and IoT market
and has provided connected business solutions to a number of global customers
such as Volvo, Nissan and Hitachi. The company was established in 2008 and is wholly
owned by Telenor Group, one of the world’s major mobile operators.
