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).

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
