Brazilian operator Claro Brazil has signed an agreement with M2M platform provider Jasper Wireless to serve its M2M customers across 2,000 cities in Brazil.

Under the terms of the deal, Jasper Wireless will provide Claro with global visibility of all SIM cards connected to the mobile network and self-service tools for provisioning, real-time diagnostics and usage controls. This will provide Claro Brazil and its customers with a faster time-to-market for new connected devices and applications and customer support, according to Jasper Wireless.

The agreement will lead to the creation of new M2M applications and services in verticals such as remote monitoring, digital signage, fleet tracking, tele-health, telematics and mobile payments, the vendor said.

The deal is an extension of Jasper’s relationship with Claro, which is owned by Mexican operator group América Móvil.

“Brazil is a market that is seeing exponential growth with areas such as mobile payments setting the pace,” Cindy Patterson, chief revenue officer at Jasper Wireless. “Our partnership with Claro Brazil will help its customers capitalise on the demand by delivering innovative services across a range of connected devices.

She added that a cloud-based approach is fundamental to success in the market and that the firm’s partnership with Claro Brazil equips it with the tools to grow exponentially within a short time frame.
