MOUNTAIN VIEW, USA, & MUNICH -- February 24, 2014

Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the mobile
Internet of Things, today announced a technical partnership with Giesecke &
Devrient (G&D), a leading international technology provider specialising in
payment, secure communication, and identity management, to deliver the world’s
first commercial end-to-end solution for Global SIM, enabling remote
provisioning and managing of mobile operator credentials and policies for that
single SIM anywhere in the world. The joint solution will enable enterprises
to deliver their connected devices worldwide by minimizing the complexity
involved in working with multiple operators across disparate regions.

Jasper and G&D together provide an integrated solution to address the
challenges that come with deploying connected devices across mobile operator
borders, including provisioning and re-provisioning the SIM remotely and
automating billing, reporting, support and operational management processes.
The solution is based on the Jasper Global SIM software module, part of the
cloud-based Jasper Platform used by 15 mobile operator groups to support more
than 2,500 enterprises’ IoT deployments globally. Jasper Global SIM is
integrated with the G&D SmartTrust® AirOn™ platform, which manages SIMs and
subscriptions Over-the-Air (OTA) and maintains the highest level of security.
The G&D solution covers both the backend secure data generation and management
of the OTA download, and the SIM software, and includes subscription
management for the lifecycle of the SIM, device information and easy
management through an API.

“For the Internet of Things to live up to its explosive potential,
interoperable global service with local support is the Holy Grail,” said
Macario Namie, VP Marketing at Jasper. “For many enterprises, their connected
device business requires local service that meets regional regulations,
performance standards and economic needs, yet in order to properly scale is
streamlined over one standardized platform with a single SIM and single point
of visibility and control. We’ve come together with G&D to offer what no-one
else can – a single worldwide platform and single Global SIM with local
service expressly designed for the mobile Internet of Things.”

“G&D appreciates the partnership with Jasper, as this is the first integration
into a commercial connected devices platform. Jasper has deep experience and
proven success in meeting the demands of multi-national enterprises when it
comes to IoT,” said Marianne Arosenius, Group Senior Vice President of G&D’s
Server Software and Services Division. “We are excited to bring our expertise
in secure remote management of devices and SIMs together to offer a complete
solution that is unrivalled in the market place in providing enterprises with
everything they need to scale IoT deployments as well as easing the way for
operators to deliver on the promise of enabling truly global connected device
services.”

Integration is available now and is in use by joint customers on live
commercial platforms. Live demonstrations of the joint solution will be
showcased at Mobile World Congress on the Jasper stand (Hall 5, stand 5G16)
and on Giesecke & Devrient stand (Hall 7, stand 7A41).
