Jasper Wireless has been ranked as the leading M2M Connected Device
Platform (CDP) vendor in a new Competitive Assessment released by ABI
Research. Its ability to present a global footprint, dominant market
share, and vertical-specific expertise were fundamental to it securing
CDPs are key tools that help make a positive business case for MNOs in
the M2M market. Typical features of a platform include the ability to
automatically self-provision remote en masse, enable customers to
self-diagnose connectivity problems and ensure MNOs can custom craft
billing plans to new business models as they emerge. With many Tier 1
MNOs having built their own CDP or selected a third-party alternative,
the race is heating up to snap up those MNOs without a CDP and this is a
race that Jasper appears to be winning at a canter.
According to report author, Craig Foster, a crucial advantage for Jasper
as this race unfolds is its ability to present a global footprint.
"Operator alliances will soon become a more integral feature of M2M
market development. A key enabler of this is likely to be the use of the
Jasper Wireless CDP by MNOs in multiple regions. Thanks to a slew of
parterships with leading MNOs such as KPN, Optimus, and Telefónica in
Europe; AT&T and Rogers in North America; América Móvil in Latin
America; Telstra, CSL, and SingTel in Asia Pacific; VimpelCom in Russia,
and Etisalat in the Middle East/Africa, Jasper enables MNOs to support
OEMs in rolling out worldwide services for their customers."
Foster also highlighted Ericsson as one to watch. "Ericsson has a long
way to go in order to catch up with Jasper but recent deals with
Swisscom, MegaFon, TeliaSonera and more recently, Three Wholesale, show
that the company is making traction, in Europe at least."
