Taiwan Mobile plans to offer enterprise IoT services in the Taiwanese market using the Cisco Jasper Control Center platform.

The operator plans to offer plug-and-play IoT services that can be configured to provide analysis, automation and diagnostic intelligence.

The company will offer services for any industry, with a particular focus on segments including connected cars, mobile payment, manufacturing, smart cities and public transport.

“Enterprises throughout Taiwan are eager to deliver new, value-added IoT services to their customers,” Taiwan Mobile senior director of mobile marketing and IoT services Eddie Chan said.

“Companies are increasingly focused on offering services that generate recurring revenue while improving the customer experience. Taiwan Mobile is excited to be at the forefront of enabling this transformation for businesses throughout Taiwan via the industry-leading Cisco Jasper IoT platform.”

Cisco acquired US-based Jasper and its cloud-based IoT service platform for $1.4 billion in March, as part of efforts to gain a stronger foothold in the burgeoning new market segment.

The Cisco Jasper Control Center offers real-time monitoring, management and control over IoT services, and is scalable to global implementations thanks to the company's partnership with 30 global mobile operator groups representing more than 120 mobile networks worldwide.
