BARCELONA, Spain -- February 24, 2014

Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the mobile
Internet of Things, today announced Jasper Alliance Manager, a new IoT and M2M
software module that enables mobile operators to form alliances with any other
operator of their choice to win and service multi-national enterprises.
Integrated into the cloud-based Jasper Platform, Jasper Alliance Manager
enables participants to administer their alliances to the terms agreed by all
parties – both operators and enterprises – removing the complexity of
delivering globally connected M2M services.

Widely recognized as the first choice for connected device manufacturers with
over 2500 enterprises on the Jasper Platform across 15 mobile operator groups
globally, Jasper is bringing this expertise to help solve the problem of
multi-nationals that need a single global service, without the hassle of
managing the complexity of multiple parties, platforms and service models.
Mobile operators are addressing this customer need by forming alliances with
each other to deliver a single solution to the enterprises. Jasper Alliance
Manager supports all alliance types, including resale, co-sell and
revenue-sharing, enabling global IoT services to be set-up in a matter of a
few days.

Jasper Alliance Manager enables any operator to form alliances with any other
operator, regardless of affiliation with Jasper. This alliance-agnostic
approach ensures that operators have complete freedom and flexibility to meet
specific customer requirements through bespoke partnerships with other mobile
operators, wherever they are in the world and whatever market they are
targeting.

“Global deployability is becoming increasingly important to product OEMs and
corporate adopters in the M2M market and traditional roaming solutions will
not provide the scale or price points to meet the coming demand for global
connectivity,” said Sam Lucero, Senior Principal Analyst at IHS.
“Consequently, IHS believes that operator alliances will continue to grow in
importance, and solutions that facilitate such alliances in an open, agnostic
manner – as with the Jasper Alliance Manager – will be welcomed by operators
seeking to serve a global M2M market with alliance partners.”

The Jasper Alliance Manager software module covers every facet of an
operator’s M2M alliance – the terms, the rules, the billing models – all while
providing enterprises a single cloud-based platform, single API, single
operational model to run their connected service business. Specifically, the
new module manages:

  *Business Terms: Rules-driven automation of cross-operator billing and
    rating capabilities to facilitate business transactions amongst alliance
    partners for a host of business models including resale, co-sell and
    revenue-sharing.
  *Operational Models: Operational capabilities delivered in a framework
    designed for multi-operator account management, rate plan and connectivity
    services provisioning, service policies definition and enforcement
  *Network Provisioning: Integrates with optional Jasper Global SIM software
    module for the ability to remotely provision and manage SIM profiles
    over-the-air anywhere in the world

“Building alliances is critical in the IoT market and global alliances are
being inked all the time,” said Scott Barkley, VP Products at Jasper.
“However, when you’re working with so many different types of enterprise
customers, you also need the flexibility to be able to quickly put in place
the alliances that will be most relevant to that customer. This can’t take
months; it needs to be quick, painless and turnkey. Jasper Alliance Manager is
based on the proven Jasper cloud-based platform to give mobile operators what
they need to be able deliver a single solution to an enterprise customer and
win global business.”

Jasper Alliance Manager is available and in-use today by operators around the
world who are building M2M alliances to better serve the specific needs of
their multi-national enterprise customers.

Launched today at Mobile World Congress 2014, live demonstrations of the
Jasper platform together with Jasper Alliance Manager software are on display
at the Jasper stand (Hall 5, stand 5G16).
