From changing rate plans to viewing up-to-the-minute data usage to instantly activating and deactivating devices, the Jasper Wireless Control Center provides insight to communications performance on a machine-by-machine basis as well as the power to act on that insight.
Jasper Wireless extends its global control with instant and automated device provisioning. When a device with a Jasper Wireless M2M Global SIM reaches the end customer and is powered on for the first time, it simply works – no manual intervention required.
Vertical application solutions. Jasper Wireless has built optimised, vertical application solutions to meet the unique needs of the industries it serves.

Automated authentication controls ensure each Jasper Wireless SIM only works with its intended device. Jasper Wireless has additional, industry-specific capabilities for fleet and asset management, vehicle telematics, security, and remote product service.
