Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the
mobile Internet of Things, today announced a technical partnership with
Giesecke & Devrient (G&D), a leading international technology provider
specialising in payment, secure communication, and identity management,
to deliver the world’s first commercial end-to-end solution for Global
SIM, enabling remote provisioning and managing of mobile operator
credentials and policies for that single SIM anywhere in the world. The
joint solution will enable enterprises to deliver their connected
devices worldwide by minimizing the complexity involved in working with
multiple operators across disparate regions.
Jasper and G&D together provide an integrated solution to address the
challenges that come with deploying connected devices across mobile
operator borders, including provisioning and re-provisioning the SIM
remotely and automating billing, reporting, support and operational
management processes. The solution is based on the Jasper Global SIM
software module, part of the cloud-based Jasper Platform used by 15
mobile operator groups to support more than 2,500 enterprises’ IoT
deployments globally. Jasper Global SIM is integrated with the G&D
SmartTrust® AirOn™ platform, which manages SIMs and subscriptions
Over-the-Air (OTA) and maintains the highest level of security. The G&D
solution covers both the backend secure data generation and management
of the OTA download, and the SIM software, and includes subscription
management for the lifecycle of the SIM, device information and easy
management through an API.
“For the Internet of Things to live up to its explosive potential,
interoperable global service with local support is the Holy Grail,” said
Macario Namie, VP Marketing at Jasper. “For many enterprises, their
connected device business requires local service that meets regional
regulations, performance standards and economic needs, yet in order to
properly scale is streamlined over one standardized platform with a
single SIM and single point of visibility and control. We’ve come
together with G&D to offer what no-one else can – a single worldwide
platform and single Global SIM with local service expressly designed for
the mobile Internet of Things.”
“G&D appreciates the partnership with Jasper, as this is the first
integration into a commercial connected devices platform. Jasper has
deep experience and proven success in meeting the demands of
multi-national enterprises when it comes to IoT,” said Marianne
Arosenius, Group Senior Vice President of G&D’s Server Software and
Services Division. “We are excited to bring our expertise in secure
remote management of devices and SIMs together to offer a complete
solution that is unrivalled in the market place in providing enterprises
with everything they need to scale IoT deployments as well as easing the
way for operators to deliver on the promise of enabling truly global
connected device services.”
Integration is available now and is in use by joint customers on live
commercial platforms. Live demonstrations of the joint solution will be
showcased at Mobile World Congress on the Jasper stand (Hall 5, stand
5G16) and on Giesecke & Devrient stand (Hall 7, stand 7A41).

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.
With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
