Jasper Wireless, the leading connected devices platform powering the
mobile Internet of Things, today announced the availability of the
Jasper Connected Car Cloud. Designed expressly for automotive OEMs, it
enables leading automotive brands to transform the connected experience
inside the vehicle for driver and passenger. From diagnostics, safety
and security, to on-board infotainment systems, apps and Wi-Fi hotspot
services, the Jasper Connected Car Cloud has been selected by 11
automotive OEMs worldwide. According to forecasts from automotive
research firm SBD, the global market for connected cars will be worth
€39 billion by 2018, up from €13 billion in 2012.
The Jasper Connected Car Cloud and Jasper Platform, widely recognized as
the first choice for automotive OEMs and enterprises deploying IoT, is
available via 15 mobile operator groups representing over 100 countries
With Jasper Connected Car Cloud, automobile manufacturers can benefit
Jasper Control Center – the world’s leading connected device platform,
cloud-based to enable enterprises to flexibly manage IoT services,
providing operational automation, real-time diagnostics and innovative
rate plan management
Global SIM – the first end-to-end solution enabling manufacturers to
manage a single SIM worldwide, while maintaining local service from
Split Billing – enabling highly differentiated service business models
by deploying a variety of different service, rating and billing
policies all through a single SIM and modem inside the vehicle
Third Party Rating – bringing to life new business models that allow
third parties to be charged for data consumption inside the vehicle,
relevant to the location and preferences of the car’s occupants
Automated Lifecycle Management – managing services, policies and rate
plans for all product lifecycle stages from manufacturing to dealer
sales to resale and vehicle destruction
“With more than 40 million cellular modem-equipped cars shipping
annually by 2020, car makers are looking for flexible, scalable, global
platforms for deploying connected services on a single SIM,” said Roger
C. Lanctot, associate director in the Global Automotive Practice of
Strategy Analytics. “Jasper is a leader in delivering these kinds of
‘pre-standard’ capabilities and is helping to define and enable new
connected vehicle business propositions.”
“The whole concept of the ‘family car’ has changed. It’s no longer just
about how many people and bags you can fit in the car, but how the whole
in-car experience can be tailored to each person before, during and
after each journey,” said Scott Barkley, VP Products, Jasper. “Whether
it is movies streamed over LTE to keep passengers entertained or driver
safety and road traffic information, OEMs need the flexibility to be
able to innovate with different business models, content partners and
rating plans. And they need to do this globally, all backed by powerful
and high quality networks.”
"In-car connectivity has gone beyond cars being paired with mobile
phones to the point where are now performing as standalone platforms for
broadband content and services,” said Jamie Moss, Senior Analyst,
Informa. “Mobile operators and auto OEMs will not only provide access to
familiar content in a format and manner appropriate for use within a
vehicle, but also the delivery of specialized, vehicle-specific
services. Critically for mass market adoption, LTE connectivity is being
built into models of vehicle designed for all price brackets as part of
the automobile manufacturers’ 2015 ranges. LTE has gone beyond simply
being an extra option for luxury cars – it’s now a crucial part of the
Automotive connectivity business models will vary from market to market,
and from OEM to OEM – there is no one-size-fits-all approach with the
connected car. Whether the stakeholders involved want to use standard
subscription services, pay-as-you-go or more sophisticated two-sided
business models, the Jasper Connected Car Cloud provides total
flexibility and transparency on rating and billing for all services. It
provides complete operational control of wireless services, including
rules-drive business process automation, global web service APIs, and
supports rating and billing for all services, including both split and
third party rating models.

Congress, visit Jasper in Hall 5, stand 5G16. For more information,

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
