  Jasper Wireless #1 in M2M Connected Device Platform Competitive Assessment,
  but Watch Out for Ericsson, Says ABI Research

Business Wire

LONDON -- November 27, 2012

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 top spot.

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 partnerships 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.”

This Competitive Assessment provides a rating of the leading third-party M2M
CDP vendors. A total of 8 companies were scrutinized against several criteria
under the categories of implementation and innovation in addition to a market
share analysis for the same 8 companies. The product forms part of ABI
