Operator joins up with M2M service provider for the use of a Cloud-based management platform to give users total visibility of SIM cards connected to the network
O2 UK has partnered with Jasper Wireless to deploy a platform for the management of M2M connections.
The mobile operator said the Cloud-based management platform will enable its customers to roll out connected devices quickly and efficiently, manage them in real time and deliver global support.
Jasper Wireless’ Control Centre is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that provides customers with global visibility of all SIM cards connected to the mobile network.
The firm said it allows customers to quickly distribute connected devices with robust self-service tools for provisioning, real time diagnostics and usage controls.
It added this provides intelligence with a live view of how devices are connecting to and using the mobile network and through automating operational processes, it allows companies to streamline activities, reduce total cost of ownership and provide a high level of customer support.
O2 UK head of M2M Gilli Coston said: “We are witnessing a myriad of new connected devices from vendors and partners across every industry. With Jasper’s platform we can capitalise on this growth, providing our customers with enhanced services, such as instant activation, real-time diagnostics tools, and detailed billing and usage reports, which in turn allows us to guarantee exceptional customer support.”
Jasper Wireless executive vice president of worldwide sales Cindy Patterson (pictured) said:“This agreement sees Jasper expand its existing relationship with Telefónica. With our platform, O2 UK can provide device partners with a highly configurable M2M management solution, that is unique to the industry, and accelerate market entry of connected devices.”
