Telecom Personal, the second largest mobile operator in Argentina, with 19.767 million subscribers as at 30 September 2014, has partnered with California-based Jasper to introduce ‘Internet of Things’ and M2M connectivity for businesses. Enterprise customers will gain a highly scalable platform to launch, manage and monetise their connected services globally, the vendor says.
TeleGeography notes that Jasper has previously teamed up with the likes of Claro, Telenor, Vimpelcom, Tele2, Telefonica, AT&T, KPN, NTT DoCoMo and Etisalat to spearhead M2M initiatives.
The IoT is the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT offers advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond M2M, and covers a variety of protocols, domains and applications.
