Global Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, Jasper reports that in the first three months of availability, over 500 enterprises have activated trial accounts on the China Unicom Control Center IoT platform from Jasper with a number of them converting their trial accounts into paid accounts enabling them to deploy their IoT services to customers across China.
In March this year, both companies signed an agreement to jointly market the solution in the country.
According to Jasper, the combination of China Unicom’s mobile network and its IoT service platform enable rapid time-to-market for businesses, and provides a flexible, turnkey solution that can be configured to meet the specialized needs of businesses across any industry. The company said that two of China’s 10 largest auto manufacturers are now using its solution to offer the Connected Car service. In the retail segment, several major retailers have selected the IoT service platform from China Unicom and Jasper to deliver wireless POS and mobile payment services. At the same time, the company notes that several after-market telematics service providers have opted for its Control Center to deliver connected IoT services to vehicles in China.
