Canadian operator TELUS has already began offering Cisco Jasper's Control Center for Mobile Enterprise to its business customers

Cisco Jasper has launched an automated mobility management platform aimed at giving enterprises more control over their smartphone and tablet devices.

The Control Center for Mobile Enterprise is an extension of Cisco Jasper’s existing internet of things platform, offering management and monitoring of connectivity, data usage, and general operation of mobile devices.

It is directly integrated with the systems used by service providers for billing and monitoring, meaning it can offer real-time usage visibility, automated cost control and self service tools usually available to enterprises.

This can include the automatic application of a roaming bundle if a user is travelling abroad, or alerts if someone exceeds their bundle allowances.

“Management of any connected device consists of common challenges like unpredictable service costs and inefficient management processes, and this is especially true for business mobile phones and tablets,” said Macario Namie, head of IoT strategy at Cisco Jasper. 

“Cisco Jasper has partnered with over 50 service providers worldwide to enable enterprises to automatically connect and manage their IoT services, and now we are extending the same proven capabilities to business mobile devices.”

The tool will be made available to mobile operators globally, as it offers Control Center for IoT to over 50 service providers across 550 mobile networks worldwide.

The first to sign up is Canadian operator TELUS, which is offering the platform to its business customers as part of its IQ Smart Mobility Management solution for businesses.

“We have always been committed to creating an exceptional experience for our customers,” said Craig Thornton, vice president, Business Mobility Solutions, at TELUS. “The Control Center for Mobile Enterprise platform, as an integral part of TELUS IQ, has enabled us to truly transform our corporate client experience, delivering instant visibility and controls to our customers. 

“We are already seeing excellent market traction and great customer feedback on the platform. Our Cisco Jasper engagement is exemplary of what great partnerships look like.”
