  Jasper Launches Global SIM for M2M and IoT Devices

World’s first solution in production for managing over-the-air provisioning of
                              connected devices

BARCELONA, Spain -- February 24, 2014

Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the mobile
Internet of Things, today announced Jasper Global SIM, the latest software
module to be integrated into the cloud-based Jasper Platform. Jasper Global
SIM gives enterprises the ability to manage a single embedded SIM by remotely
provisioning and managing mobile operator profiles and policies for that SIM
anywhere in the world. This meets the demand for more efficient and
cost-effective global deployment models and enables rapid international
distribution and device activation. Connected devices can be transferred
seamlessly from one operator to another to take advantage of local operator
support, comply with international roaming restrictions and address cost
constraints.

Jasper Global SIM provides the ability to change SIM profiles on-demand or
based on pre-defined rules and triggering events, with reporting and audit
controls, automated assignment to proper policies, rate plans and service
conditions, with fully managed billing and contractual term compliance. This
technology innovation is already patent protected.

The Jasper Global SIM software developer kit is available today for
enterprises deploying M2M devices internationally.

“For multinational enterprises, the challenge of managing a single global IoT
service cannot be underestimated. It starts with the development process and
continues throughout the service lifecycle,” said Carrie MacGillivray, Program
Vice President, Mobile Services & IoT, IDC. “The downstream operational impact
of moving from operator to operator can be a real headache. That’s why a
global IoT service – starting with a global SIM – is about more than being
able to swap SIM profiles between operators; it’s about making operational
processes such as policy management, diagnostics and auditing seamless between
local operator partners. Enterprises must consider their global requirements
prior to making an IoT investment and choose an IoT partner according to these
needs.”

Already integrated into leading SIM Subscription Manager systems, Jasper
Global SIM provides a common architecture for enterprises managing global
deployments of smart meters, connected cars, home security systems and much
more.

“The demand for a Global SIM has been led by our enterprise customers, who
need to remotely provision and manage their connected devices wherever they
are in the world,” said Daniel Collins, CTO Wireless at Jasper. “The
combination of our network of over 15 mobile operator group partners,
representing more than 100 national operators, and the new Jasper Global SIM
software module means enterprises can develop connected products and services
safe in the knowledge that they are future-proofed. Whether they are launching
into a new territory, designing a new application or wanting to quickly scale
their business, Jasper Global SIM gives them the flexibility and reassurance
they need.”

Launched today at Mobile World Congress 2014, live demonstrations of the
Jasper Platform and Global SIM software module are on display at the Jasper
stand (Hall 5, stand 5G16). The Global SIM Software Developer Kit is available
today – for further information on how to start developing connected devices
