BARCELONA, Spain -- February 25, 2014

Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the mobile
Internet of Things, today announced the availability of the Jasper Connected
Car Cloud. Designed expressly for automotive OEMs, it enables leading
automotive brands to transform the connected experience inside the vehicle for
driver and passenger. From diagnostics, safety and security, to on-board
infotainment systems, apps and Wi-Fi hotspot services, the Jasper Connected
Car Cloud has been selected by 11 automotive OEMs worldwide. According to
forecasts from automotive research firm SBD, the global market for connected
cars will be worth €39 billion by 2018, up from €13 billion in 2012.

The Jasper Connected Car Cloud and Jasper Platform, widely recognized as the
first choice for automotive OEMs and enterprises deploying IoT, is available
via 15 mobile operator groups representing over 100 countries worldwide.

With Jasper Connected Car Cloud, automobile manufacturers can benefit from:

  *Jasper Control Center – the world’s leading connected device platform,
    cloud-based to enable enterprises to flexibly manage 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 worldwide, while maintaining local service from local
    operators
  *Split Billing – enabling highly differentiated service business models by
    deploying a variety of different service, rating and billing policies 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

“With more than 40 million cellular modem-equipped cars shipping annually by
2020, car makers are looking for flexible, scalable, global platforms for
deploying connected services on a single SIM,” said Roger C. Lanctot,
associate director in the Global Automotive Practice of Strategy Analytics.
“Jasper is a leader in delivering these kinds of ‘pre-standard’ capabilities
and is helping to define and enable new connected vehicle business
propositions.”

“The whole concept of the ‘family car’ has changed. It’s no longer just about
how many people and bags you can fit in the car, but how the whole in-car
experience can be tailored to each person before, during and after each
journey,” said Scott Barkley, VP Products, Jasper. “Whether it is movies
streamed over LTE to keep passengers entertained or driver safety and road
traffic information, OEMs need the flexibility to be able to innovate with
different business models, content partners and rating plans. And they need to
do this globally, all backed by powerful and high quality networks.”

"In-car connectivity has gone beyond cars being paired with mobile phones to
the point where are now performing as standalone platforms for broadband
content and services,” said Jamie Moss, Senior Analyst, Informa. “Mobile
operators and auto OEMs will not only provide access to familiar content in a
format and manner appropriate for use within a vehicle, but also the delivery
of specialized, vehicle-specific services. Critically for mass market
adoption, LTE connectivity is being built into models of vehicle designed for
all price brackets as part of the automobile manufacturers’ 2015 ranges. LTE
has gone beyond simply being an extra option for luxury cars – it’s now a
crucial part of the consumer experience.”

Automotive connectivity business models will vary from market to market, and
from OEM to OEM – there is no one-size-fits-all approach with the connected
car. Whether the stakeholders involved want to use standard subscription
services, pay-as-you-go or more sophisticated two-sided business models, the
Jasper Connected Car Cloud provides total flexibility and transparency on
rating and billing for all services. It provides complete operational control
of wireless services, including rules-drive business process automation,
global web service APIs, and supports rating and billing for all services,
including both split and third party rating models.
