Russia's VimpelCom has selected Cisco Jasper to be the Smart Connectivity management platform across its global network operator properties. The partnership is aimed at enhancing commercial opportunities internationally for the business to business segment.
Using the Cisco Jasper Internet of Things (IoT) platform, Control Center, VimpelCom business customers will be able to implement, manage, and monetize M2M/IoT services, such as fleet management and smart metering, through seamless device connectivity.
The Cisco Jasper Control Center platform provides real-time visibility and management of M2M connections to underpin commercial IoT services. Using Control Center, VimpelCom customers can remotely manage M2M/IoT devices, set up rules to control SIM activity, reduce data costs, and automate associated business processes.
Cisco Jasper partners with 33 mobile operator groups that represent more than 120 mobile operator networks worldwide. As a result, when businesses are ready to scale their operations to countries outside of VimpelCom's markets, they can quickly and easily do so.
Kalle Ward, Managing Director EMEAR, IoT Cloud at Cisco Jasper, said: "Through this partnership, Cisco Jasper will enable innovative global enterprises to capitalize on IoT services and capture their share of the connected service market. Our collaboration with VimpelCom will enable enterprises to pioneer industry transformation, introduce new business models, and create never-before-seen, high-value experiences for their customers."
