BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- September 17, 2013

Claro Argentina has today announced that it has partnered with Jasper Wireless
to bring to market the industry-leading cloud-based platform for the
management of machine-to-machine (M2M) connections. The connected devices
platform will enable Claro to connect, support and accelerate the market entry
of a host of new generation enterprise tools and consumer gadgets, reaching
new customers across a range of vertical markets and application areas.

“At Claro we see a huge business opportunity in the growing machine-to-machine
market, but the path to serve customers’ needs lies in moving up the value
chain and making integration part of the end-to-end business model. It is
about much more than just providing mobile connectivity,” said Marcelo
Guglielmucci, Marketing Manager for the Enterprise Market. “Partnering with
Jasper is an important step towards being fully equipped to support the
expansive growth across various vertical industries with a more robust
service. We’re excited about future opportunities.”

As connected devices become ubiquitous, success depends on being flexible
enough to serve different verticals and consumers globally. Deployment
visibility, device management and real-time diagnostics are therefore
fundamental requirements for a mobile operator looking to maximize the M2M
opportunity.

The Jasper Wireless platform for connected devices supports 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. This means Claro can deliver a superior
out-of-the-box experience to the end customer, enabling them to manage their
service through an intuitive, simple and secure web page or by means of a
fully featured API framework.

“Increasingly advanced M2M applications require service platforms that
integrate and provide real-time visibility and control across remote devices,
mobile networks and enterprise applications. In vast and growing markets like
Latin America this is required on a large scale. Working with Claro has
allowed us to expand our offering in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay,
servicing a wider group of enterprises with an experienced communications
provider,” said Cindy Patterson, chief revenue officer at Jasper Wireless.

With several projects already underway, full commercial roll-out of M2M
services by Claro is imminent. Combining highly customizable business models
with holistic visibility and management of the connected devices network,
Claro will enable enterprise customers to reap maximum benefit from its new
M2M services offering.
