MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2014) - Jasper Wireless, Inc., the pioneer in cloud-based platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced a new company name: Jasper Technologies, Inc. The change more accurately represents the scope of the company's product offerings. It also reflects Jasper's focus on cloud-based technologies and on scaling to meet surging demand from global enterprises and mobile operators for its IoT platform. The Jasper Platform delivers everything enterprises need to launch, manage and monetize a successful connected business.
"Many companies are seeing the opportunity to deliver high-value services through connected devices -- yet they face a host of challenges in building an Internet of Things business," said Jahangir Mohammed, founder and CEO of Jasper. "Our platform enables companies to overcome these challenges and capitalize on the benefits of IoT. The name change reflects our commitment to delivering the technologies and solutions companies need to make the successful transformation from traditional product businesses to IoT service businesses."
Jasper's renaming comes on the heels of securing $50 million in new capital earlier this month, which marked a new growth phase for the company. In alignment with this growth and name change, Jasper has introduced a new logo and website, www.jasper.com.
