Jasper, an Internet of Things (IoT) platform provider, said Telefonica Vivo is launching the Vivo M2M Control Center Platform for global corporate clients in Brazil.
The IoT platform enables businesses in any market to deploy, manage and monetize IoT services.
Telefonica Vivo, the largest 3G and 4G network in Brazil, offers a turnkey solution for Brazilian enterprises in any industry — including utilities, automotive, security, healthcare, consumer electronics, smart cities and more.
M2M customers can easily configure the Vivo M2M Control Center for the needs of any business model, ensuring real-time control and visibility of their connected devices, in addition to mobile service management, support diagnostics and flexible billing.
Jasper said the Control Center features Global SIM capabilities, enabling enterprises to establish processes where data communication, voice and SMS use the same hardware solution in any country.
Telefonica Vivo is the first telecom operator in Brazil to use the Telefonica Global SIM capabilities of Control Center, which automatically migrates the settings of the original SIM card – ensuring an easy transition to Brazilian settings, as may be required by regulations.
The Telefonica SIM cards can be delivered anywhere in the world, which favors the overall logistics processes of the clients. The Telefonica Global SIM card is available in the normal, robust (with high capacity of resistance), embedded and solderable versions.
Cindy Patterson, chief customer officer at Jasper, said: “There is a great demand for IoT in Brazil, and this partnership with Telefonica Vivo not only helps meet that domestic demand, but also helps enterprises outside of Brazil expand their IoT services into the country.”
Telefonica Vivo has over 97.2 million accesses — 81.9 million in mobile operation in Brazil in Q1 2015. The company is present in more than 3,700 towns, over 3,200 of them with access to 3G network and 140 covered by 4G network.
