San Jose, Calif. and Oslo, Norway – Telenor Norway, the largest provider of mobile and network services in Norway, today announced a collaboration with Cisco Jasper to help enable enterprises throughout Norway to launch, manage and monetize IoT services. The collaboration will pair Telenor Norway’s mobile network with the Cisco Jasper IoT connectivity management platform, enabling enterprises to easily and cost-effectively deliver new connected services through connected devices that create valuable experiences for customers and unlock new revenue channels.
“Businesses throughout Norway are eager to embrace IoT because they understand that, as more devices get connected, business value shifts from the products themselves to the services that are delivered through them,” said Ove Fredheim, Senior Vice President and Head of the Business Division at Telenor Norway. “Companies are increasingly focused on offering services that generate recurring, post-sale revenues. We’re excited to be at the forefront of enabling this transformation for businesses throughout Norway.”
IoT Connected Service Businesses in Norway and Beyond
Enterprises on the Telenor Norway mobile network will benefit from Cisco Jasper’s highly-scalable IoT platform, Control Center, which will not only provide them with near real-time visibility and control over their IoT services in Norway, but also has the global scale needed to easily expand those services worldwide. Cisco Jasper partners with 50+ service providers that manage IoT devices across more than 550 mobile networks worldwide. This means that, when Norwegian enterprises are ready to expand the delivery of products and services to other countries, they can quickly and easily do so as business demands.
From connected cars, to industrial manufacturing, to smart homes and cities, Cisco Jasper’s IoT connectivity management platform is designed to meet the unique needs of companies in any industry. With Cisco Jasper, Telenor Norway customers will be able to accelerate their IoT results by automating and optimizing every stage of IoT service delivery. This helps enable them to get to market faster, increase productivity, manage costs and deliver exceptional, reliable customer experiences.
“Telenor and Cisco Jasper are united in our commitment to enabling innovators throughout Norway to capitalize on IoT and capture their share of the connected service market,” said Kalle Ward, managing director, EMEAR at Cisco Jasper. “Our collaboration with Telenor will help enable Norwegian businesses to drive industry transformation, introduce new business models and create never-before-seen experiences for their customers. For more than a decade, leading companies worldwide have relied on Cisco Jasper to fast-track their IoT services and maximize results. We look forward to doing the same for visionary companies across Norway.”
