The carrier has been actively building its partner ecosystem and has signed a deal with Jasper - a pioneer and global leader in IoT - to provide customers and partners with the world's leading platform for managing their connected devices. The aim of the establishment of the IoT Marketplace is to help Canadian businesses to accelerate their adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technology by leveraging turn-key offerings from these companies.

The service provider is actively onboarding new partners and plans to add solutions on a weekly basis.
