Build your devices for the edge with ThingSpace.

Take your business to the edge with M2M devices.

Multi-access edge computing (MEC) will enable automation, engagement and innovation like never before. And 5G Ultra Wideband wireless technology is a powerful enabler for edge computing because it has the ultra-fast speeds, ultra-low latency and flexibility IoT developers need to design and implement their MEC solutions.

Verizon and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have come together to combine powerful connectivity with leading cloud-computing services to deliver on the promise of MEC. But in order to bring the cloud closer to your data and fully capitalize on the data-driven technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) and more, you need M2M devices that can keep up. 

ThingSpace gives developers all the tools to build wireless IoT devices and launch your solution on the edge. Whether you're an application or IoT device developer, a startup looking to build a connected solution, or an enterprise who manages thousands of devices—ThingSpace by Verizon is the perfect place to start.

Why wireless connectivity?

  • Coverage

    Verizon’s 4G LTE network covers over 98% of Americans and now, low-power wide-area (LPWA) technologies such as LTE-M and NB-IoT expand connectivity even further to underground and rural environments.

  • Bandwidth

    The future is 5G Ultra Wideband. With ultra-fast speeds and ultra-low latency, 5G will give you the ability to create solutions with near real-time data processing.

  • Cloud

    Verizon and your cloud application work hand-in-hand. You can connect your devices to the Verizon network and then leverage our APIs to manage your devices in your cloud application.

  • Security

    By default, wireless connectivity data is encrypted and Verizon has cybersecurity experts dedicated to keeping the network security updated.
