Mobile World Congress, Barcelona; Mountain View, USA; Munich, Germany (Business Wire) — Jasper Wireless, the connected devices platform powering the mobile Internet of Things (IoT), has formed a technical partnership with Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), an international technology provider specialising in payment, secure communication, and identity management. Together they are reportedly delivering the world’s first commercial end-to-end solution for Global SIM.

This solution enables remote provisioning and management of mobile operator credentials and policies for that single subscriber identity module (SIM) anywhere in the world. The joint solution will enable enterprises to deliver their connected devices worldwide by minimising the complexity involved in working with multiple operators across disparate regions.

G&D and Jasper 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 back-end 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, vice-president 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 standardised 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 multinational 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.

To date, over 2,500 enterprises have standardised on the Jasper platform across 15 mobile operator groups worldwide. Using the company’s cloud-based technology, network operators and enterprises can scale their deployment of connected devices quickly and profitably worldwide. Mobile operators leveraging the Jasper IoT Platform include AT&T, Telefónica, América Móvil, NTT DOCOMO, KPN, VimpelCom, SingTel, Etisalat, Telstra, Rogers, and more.
