This partnership pairs the capabilities of Reliance’s 11 data center facilities and its Global Cloud Exchange (Cloud X®) platform with Jasper’s global IoT services platform to enable enterprises to capitalize on IoT services. This also marks yet another step forward in delivering the infrastructure and IoT platform required to facilitate the diverse array of projects under the Government of India’s ‘Digital India’ initiative.

“Businesses throughout India—as well as India’s own infrastructure and services—are undergoing a massive transformation. Reliable networks, innovative Cloud computing and scalable IoT platforms are critical to enabling this revolution,” said Mr Bill Barney, CEO, Reliance Communications (Enterprise) & Global Cloud Xchange. “We are pleased to team up with Jasper in this important deployment of IoT services, enabling businesses across India to build, implement and go to market faster, while gaining real-time visibility, control and service reliability.”

Reliance Group companies will be the anchor clients for the IoT rollout in India. Discussions are also underway with multiple clients and state governments across India for the deployment of this platform. A dedicated technical team from Reliance and Jasper will manage the phased roll-out of IoT services across the country.

“India is investing a great deal to empower citizens and enterprises with cutting-edge technology and infrastructure, and as a result, there is a large demand for Cloud and IoT services,” said Mr Jahangir Mohammed, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Jasper. “This partnership allows us to support enterprises and governments throughout India in optimizing and automating every stage of their IoT service lifecycle, enabling companies to get the most out of their devices, networks and applications.”

In collaboration with Reliance, the Jasper Control Center platform will enable enterprises throughout India to deliver IoT services that create value for customers and unlock new and recurring sources of revenue for the business. The real-time intelligence and interaction these services enable deepens the relationships companies have with their customers, increasing their lifetime value.
