POST Luxembourg and Jasper to migrate 1.1m connected vehicles onto IoT Control Centre Platform

Jasper, a global Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, and recently the subject of a $1.4bn takeover offer by Cisco, and POST Luxembourg, Luxembourg’s national telecommunications services operator, have combined their network and IoT platform.

This is designed to enable enterprises to easily launch, manage and monetise IoT service businesses. Companies throughout Europe can now introduce IoT services with POST Luxembourg that enhance their customers’ experiences while also unlocking new revenue channels. Enterprises looking to deliver IoT/M2M services outside Luxembourg will be able to take advantage of Jasper Control Center through TERALINK Solutions, the international business unit of POST, which launched last year.

Migrating 1.1 million connected cars to POST IoT Control Center

One of the first enterprises to utilise POST IoT Control Center powered by Jasper on POST’s network was one of Europe’s largest auto manufacturers. This unnamed auto maker was reportedly quick to recognise that moving their connected cars onto the IoT Control Center platform would give them greater visibility and control over their IoT services.

The platform also enables them to scale the services delivered to those vehicles to meet growing demand. Jasper and POST were quick to implement the vision of this first-mover, and their close collaboration made it possible to migrate 1.1 million vehicles to the IoT Control Center platform.

“For over a decade, Jasper’s industry-leading IoT service platform has helped automakers transform the driving experience. We partner with more than 15 of the world’s leading OEMs to accelerate connected car innovation and deliver solutions that enable reliable delivery and management of new services,” said Kalle Ward, regional managing director EMEA at Jasper. “It was exciting to meet the challenge of bringing one of Europe’s largest car manufacturer’s connected cars onto the platform. We look forward to continuing to help them launch, manage and monetise their future connected car initiatives.”

Enabling global scalability of IoT services in any industry

By partnering with Jasper, POST now provides its customers a highly scalable IoT platform that not only enables them to introduce new IoT services in Europe, but also gives them the flexibility to easily expand their services globally. Jasper partners with 27 mobile operator groups that represent over 100 mobile operator networks worldwide, so as businesses aspire to grow their IoT services beyond Europe, they can quickly and easily scale as needed.

“We continue to see a high level of demand for IoT solutions from our enterprise customers, and with Jasper, we are well-equipped to provide our customers with a premiere global IoT platform,” said Jean-Marie Spaus, director at POST Luxembourg. “Enterprises throughout Luxembourg, regardless of industry, can now quickly and cost-effectively deliver value-added IoT services that enable better relationships with their customers while driving revenue growth.”
