Cisco Jasper has won a deal to supply Taiwan Mobile with its Control Centre platform.

The operator plans to use the kit to help its enterprise customers deliver new connected services and improve productivity, although it did not specify which areas it plans to target.

Its customer base spans businesses in the connected car, mobile payment, manufacturing, smart cities and public transportation sectors, according to Cisco.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Eddie Chan, Senior Director of Mobile Marketing and IoT Services Division at Taiwan Mobile said: “Enterprises throughout Taiwan are eager to deliver new, value-added IoT services to their customers.

“Companies are increasingly focused on offering services that generate recurring revenue while improving the customer experience.”

Cisco acquired Jasper for $1.4 billion in February this year in a bid to tie the Control Centre platform to its network, cloud and analytics assets.

The Taiwan Mobile deal is the first the combined business has won.

Jasper’s tech is used by 30 network operator groups and is the platform on which the M2M World Alliance consortium is based around.

The news comes a week after Cisco announced plans to cut up to 5,500 jobs, although they are not thought to impact Jasper.

The US-based vendor said it was targeting “lower growth areas” and that it would be investing in “key priority areas” such as the IoT.

Global IoT revenues are set to top $3 trillion in 2025, up from $750 billion last year, according to a Machina Research report released earlier this month.
