Jasper Technologies, previously known as Jasper Wireless, bills itself as a pioneer of monitising IoT solutions.
Jasper's M2M technology is managing connected devices for over 1,000 companies from more than 20 industries and is integrated with global mobile operating groups worldwide.
"Jasper has become the de facto standard platform for service management in M2M-IoT solutions. The company's software is used by scores of CSPs (cloud service providers) and MSP (mobie services providers), such as Wyless, around the world for service management," said Goodness.
The California based company has already taken strides in the automotive industry, having introduced the Jasper Connected Car Cloud to develop connected car services, the airline industry and healthcare.
Back in April, it raised $50m in funding, led by the government of Singapore's investment arm Temasek, which brings Jasper's valuation to more than $1.3bn.
