AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- November 14, 2013

Gen-i announced today that it will become the first New Zealand provider to
offer the industry-leading Jasper Wireless global enterprise connected devices
platform for powering the mobile Internet of Things (IoT).

The Jasper Wireless platform enables machine-to-machine (M2M) connections
across global locations and telecommunications networks, and connects a large
developer community, removing boundaries for Kiwi businesses and developers
looking to play on the world stage.

Gen-i will use the Jasper Wireless platform to support clients looking to
create business value by connecting devices, or grow a locally developed IoT
solution into global markets. Gen-i will also leverage the platform to bring
new generation M2M solutions to market here in New Zealand.

Gen-i Head of Mobility Dave Shennan says the Jasper Wireless platform will
enable the company to support clients across a range of verticals in
leveraging telemetry and big data for business advantage.

“The Jasper Wireless platform will help our clients unleash the power of big
data by enabling them to simultaneously monitor and manage multiple devices in
any location to provide real-time information that they can use to create a
competitive edge,” says Shennan.

“Jasper is already the platform of choice for the most enterprises worldwide,
so will also help Kiwi businesses draw upon the experiences of others
globally.”

“Partnering with Jasper is an important step for Gen-i as we look to support
the expansive growth across various vertical industries with a more robust
service. We’re excited about the future opportunities this platform will
provide for our clients.”

The Jasper Wireless platform was recognised by the 2013 Global Mobile Awards
judging panel as the Best Cloud Based Technology for Mobile. Jasper Wireless
is widely recognised as the first choice for enterprises, with over 2500
deployed across 15 mobile operator groups, representing over 100 operators
across Australasia, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East, including
Telstra in Australia and AT&T in the USA.

The platform 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 Gen-i can deliver a superior out-of-the-box experience to
its clients, enabling them to manage their service through an intuitive,
simple and secure web page or by means of a fully featured API framework.

“Jasper Wireless is delighted to be working with Gen-i to quickly and
profitably introduce, connect and manage connected mobile devices. Mobile
operators in the past have seen a five-fold profit increase using cloud-based
M2M services management platforms and we expect growth potential to be even
greater in the near-future as cellular M2M connections surge to 2.1 billion by
2020,” said Jasper Wireless Global Vice President, Ken Laversin. “Jasper
Wireless looks forward to helping Gen-i fully capitalise on the opportunities
M2M will bring to the mobile operator market.”

Gen-i’s agreement with Jasper Wireless builds on the company’s other recently
secured partnerships with SAP, Emulex, Compuware, Flexera and Samsung, all
designed to bring innovative new services developed by proven global
technology providers into the New Zealand market.
