Mobily and Jasper Wireless partner in M2M deal

25 February 2013 |


Mobily has today announced an agreement with Jasper Wireless to wirelessly connect M2M and consumer devices in Saudi Arabia.

Jasper Wireless’ cloud-based platform is designed to enable operators to efficiently and inexpensively connect devices across its network.

Mobily is expected to benefit from the ability to manage a range of wireless devices in areas such as automotive telematics and infotainment, consumer electronics, smart metering and building automation.

“Jasper’s cloud-based model will enable us to accelerate time-to-market with new agile services, as well as give us full visibility and intelligent control of how devices are connecting to and using the network,” said Marwan Al Ahmadi, chief business officer at Mobily.

Mobily joins KPN, NTT DOCOMO, Telefónica, VimpelCom and Telstra, among others, who also benefit from Jasper Wireless’ platform.

Cindy Patterson, chief revenue officer at Jasper Wireless, added: “Mobily is a rapidly growing mobile operator in the MENA region with impressive market share and the opportunity for it to capitalise on industry demand for M2M communications is ripe, particularly in the automotive vertical.”

Optus Business has also announced a partnership with Jasper Wireless today to utilise its M2M services across Australia.

The deals mark a step towards what is expected to be a milestone year for M2M.
