Jasper Wireless Launches M2M Catalyst Program for Mobile Operators
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Jasper Wireless (News - Alert), the leading connected devices platform for
machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer electronics, today announced the
launch of M2M Catalyst, a program to enable partner operators to rapidly
establish and capitalize on new services for connected devices.
The potential of M2M services as an important new revenue stream for
operators worldwide is dependent on the speed and agility with which
operators can launch solutions across an ever-growing array of vertical
markets. M2M Catalyst provides mobile operators with a comprehensive
program designed to accelerate their service offerings into existing and
emerging connected devices sectors. It is organized around three
components that offer essential training and tools, launch assistance
and access to a solutions ecosystem: Launch, Build and Expand.
1) Launch: comprehensive set of
tools to help operators get their sales and operational capabilities
ready for servicing M2M customers. This includes sales enablement
training, organizational best practices consulting, sales and marketing
templates, and overall project management.
2) Build: A turnkey developer
program with which operators can quickly engage prospective customers in
their M2M service offerings and establish accounts on the world's
leading platform for M2M enterprises - Control Center. This gives
visibility into prospective customers' activities, accelerating the
overall customer acquisition process.
3) Expand: This gives partner
operators access to Jasper Wireless' growing ecosystem of diverse
vertical solution providers, which offer a range of services that rely
on M2M connectivity and are field proven with respect to integration
with Control Center. Operators can leverage the bestpractices proven by
such solutions, reducing the time-to-market and increasing effectiveness
in a specific industry vertical.
Shawn Welsh, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Telular (News - Alert), a
Jasper ecosystem solution provider, comments on the benefits of the
program: "Telular is pleased to be part of the M2M Catalyst program. Our
SkyBitz (News - Alert), TankLink and Telguard solutions can help operators move quickly
into the growing asset and security monitoring verticals with
feature-rich M2M services." Telular (NASDAQ: WRLS) represents several
vertical solution providers including SkyBitz - transportation trailer
tracking, TankLink - tank level monitoring and Telguard - intrusion and
fire systems monitoring.
Pat Romano, president and CEO of ChargePoint, also a Jasper ecosystem
partner, explains that "as the largest network of independently owned
electric vehicle charging stations, ChargePoint is eager to work with
Jasper's partner operators to enhance electric vehicle charging
solutions with M2M connectivity and associated cloud based services."
"For the mobile operator, speed is the key. Time-to-market, first-mover
advantage, market leadership, they all come down to the same thing -
having the agility to be able to launch, monetize and manage the
innovative services that can open up new emerging vertical market
opportunities. The M2M Catalyst program not only provides tools and
support for setting up and growing an M2M business, but is an
opportunity for operators to tap into best practices from around the
world, so that they get the competitive edge by accelerating their own
time-to-market," said Macario Namie, Vice President, Marketing at Jasper
