Customers will benefit from the global scalability of the Control Centre as Cisco Jasper partners with 33 global mobile operator groups
Cisco Jasper has expanded its Internet of Things (IoT) services to businesses in Chile and Hong Kong following deals struck with telecommunications firms based in both countries.
Entel, Chile’s largest telecommunications company, has selected the Cisco Jasper Control Centre IoT connectivity management platform to help customers transform their businesses with IoT services. According to Entel, the arrangement means its business customers will be able to increase productivity and manage costs.
It also said its customers will also benefit from the global scalability of Control Centre as Cisco Jasper partners with 33 global mobile operator groups representing more than 120 mobile operator networks worldwide.
A number of sectors in Chile have already demonstrated a demand for IoT-enabled services in areas such as fleet management, smart metering, connected health and security and home automation.
“This agreement strategically pairs the telecom expertise of Entel with the IoT experience of Cisco to help ensure businesses throughout Chile have the solutions and resources they need to succeed,” said Gabriel Calgaro, country manager for Chile at Cisco. “We look forward to supporting the digital transformation of Entel’s business customers, and simplifying their transition to service businesses.”
“Entel Chile and Cisco Jasper are both focused on supporting innovative business that want to capitalise on IoT,” added Ken Laversin, head of global sales, IoT Cloud at Cisco Jasper. “Together with Entel we are committed to enabling enterprises to bring IoT services to market rapidly and cost-effectively, while enabling them to scale as demand requires.”
Meanwhile, Cisco Jasper’s partnership with Hong Kong’s SmarTone will allow businesses in any industry to leverage the mobile operator’s network and Cisco’s managed connectivity platform to deliver new services and increase revenue, the companies said.
According to the partners, the deal makes it straightforward for companies of any size to transform their businesses by offering connected services that enhance their customers’ experiences while enabling new revenue models. Businesses outside of Hong Kong can also expand their connected services into the country
“We are committed to helping our business customers take advantage of IoT to deliver real business results, and to achieve that we needed the best IoT connectivity management platform,” said Daniel Leung, head of business markets at SmarTone. “Cisco Jasper is the global leader in IoT platforms, and this partnership makes it simple for all businesses to capture their share of the IoT market by delivering new connected services.”
“For more than 10 years we have been helping businesses across every industry automate the delivery of IoT services that have a direct impact on their bottom line,” added Ken Laversin, worldwide head of sales, IoT Cloud at Cisco Jasper.
“More than 6,500 companies in over 100 countries use Cisco Jasper Control Centre to automate the connectivity management of their IoT devices around the world. SmarTone’s leadership as a total service provider – including Cloud, mobile, fixed, ICT and IoT services – makes it an ideal partner to serve innovative businesses pursuing IoT in Hong Kong.”
