Jasper Wireless #1 in M2M Connected Device Platform Competitive Assessment, but Watch Out for Ericsson, Says ABI Research

LONDON --(Business Wire)--

Jasper Wireless (News - Alert) has been ranked as the leading M2M Connected Device Platform (CDP) vendor in a new Competitive Assessment released by ABI Research. Its ability to present a global footprint, dominant market share, and vertical-specific expertise were fundamental to it securing top spot.

CDPs are key tools that help make a positive business case for MNOs in the M2M market. Typical features of a platform include the ability to automatically self-provision remote en masse, enable customers to self-diagnose connectivity problems and ensure MNOs can custom craft billing plans to new business models as they emerge. With many Tier 1 MNOs having built their own CDP or selected a third-party alternative, the race is heating up to snap up those MNOs without a CDP and this is a race that Jasper appears to be winning at a canter.

According to report author, Craig Foster, a crucial advantage for Jasper as this race unfolds is its ability to present a global footprint. "Operator alliances will soon become a more integral feature of M2M market development. A key enabler of this is likely to be the use of the Jasper Wireless CDP by MNOs in multiple regions. Thanks to a slew of parterships with leading MNOs such as KPN, Optimus, and Telefónica in Europe; AT&T and Rogers in North America; América Móvil in Latin America; Telstra (News - Alert), CSL, and SingTel in Asia Pacific; VimpelCom in Russia, and Etisalat in the Middle East/Africa, Jasper enables MNOs to support OEMs in rolling out worldwide services for their customers."

Foster also highlighted Ericsson as one to watch. "Ericsson has a long way to go in order to catch up with Jasper but recent deals with Swisscom, MegaFon (News - Alert), TeliaSonera and more recently, Three Wholesale, show that the company is making traction, in Europe at least."

This Competitive Assessment provides a rating of the leading third-party M2M CDP vendors. A total of 8 companies were scrutinized against several criteria under the categories of implementation and innovation in addition to a market share analysis for the same 8 companies. The product forms part of ABI Research's (News - Alert) M2M Service Delivery Platforms ( Research Service.
