MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- February 25, 2014

Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the mobile
Internet of Things, today announced it will power AT&T Drive, a first of its
kind modular, global automotive platform for developing LTE connected car
services. AT&T Drive allows car manufacturers to take advantage of
next-generation data speeds and deliver everything from voice-controlled apps
and infotainment to advanced diagnostics services.

Jasper Connected Car Cloud will help AT&T power transformative connected
experiences inside the vehicle for the betterment of safety, security, product
quality and entertainment. Jasper Connected Car Cloud, exclusive to AT&T in
the United States, will enable automobile manufacturers to benefit from:

  *AT&T Control Center – the world’s leading connected device platform, built
    expressly for enterprises managing IoT services, providing operational
    automation, real-time diagnostics and innovative rate plan management
  *Global SIM – the first end-to-end solution enabling manufacturers to
    manage a single SIM, while maintaining local service from local operators
  *Split Billing – enabling highly differentiated service business models by
    deploying different services with different policies, rating and billing
    models all through a single SIM and modem inside the vehicle
  *Third Party Rating – bringing to life new business models that allow third
    parties to be charged for data consumption inside the vehicle, relevant to
    the location and preferences of the car’s occupants
  *Automated Lifecycle Management – managing services, policies and rate
    plans for all product lifecycle stages from manufacturing to dealer sales
    to resale and vehicle destruction

“The ‘Connected Car’ is about the complete on-board experience, not just the
fancy gadgets. It’s about bringing together everything from diagnostics,
safety and security to infotainment, apps and Wi-Fi hotspot services in a way
that is right for this specific environment,” said Cindy Patterson, Chief
Revenue Officer at Jasper. “Together with AT&T, Jasper has been powering auto
customers since 2009, building unrivalled expertise on what it takes to
deliver an amazing connected car experience. We’re excited to be part of
AT&T’s ambitions to showcase these new end-to-end solutions for automotive
manufacturers around the world and to become a leading carrier for connected
car innovation in the world.”

“Jasper Wireless is a natural collaboration for AT&T Drive,” said Chris
Penrose, senior vice president, emerging devices, AT&T Mobility. “Jasper has a
long-standing relationship with AT&T for connected devices and is recognized
as the first choice for enterprises entering the Internet of Things. Working
with automakers, we’re focused on delivering the very best in-car experience
for both the driver and passengers, and we’re pleased to be using Jasper’s
platform to help provide this to our customers.”
