Cisco and Jasper – Who Needed Who First?
Since launching the Cisco IoT System in June 2015, Cisco has frantically been filling in the gaps of this solution set, of which there were many. As a networking provider, they were really only supporting IoT through connectivity. However, the value in M2M/IoT is through “value-added” services – revenues from IoT VAS are expected to exceed 70% of all IoT services revenues.

It also allows them to build from their strengths in networks and operator relationships.
