Develop custom edge devices with ThingSpace from Verizon.


  • Take your business to the edge.

  • Multi-access edge computing (MEC) will enable automation, engagement and innovation like never before. And the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband* network is a powerful enabler for edge computing. It delivers the ultrafast speeds, ultra-low latency and flexibility that IoT developers need to design and implement latency-sensitive solutions.

    And now there’s Verizon 5G Edge, a mobile edge compute platform that brings the power of the cloud right into the 5G Ultra Wideband network, to enable the development of large-scale, latency-sensitive applications at the network edge.

    To fully capitalize on the power of 5G Edge and data-driven technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and more, you need devices that can keep up. ThingSpace can help. 

    ThingSpace gives developers the tools and resources they need to deploy IoT and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices at the edge. Whether you're an application or IoT device developer, a startup looking to build a connected solution, or an enterprise that manages thousands of devices—ThingSpace by Verizon is the right place to start.

*5G Ultra Wideband available only in parts of select cities.

Why wireless connectivity?

  • Coverage

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

    Verizon 5G is expected to enable massive IoT capabilities, or MIoT, that generate and harness huge amounts of data and support mission-critical services requiring Ultra Reliable, Low Latency Communication (URLLC).

  • Bandwidth

    The future is 5G Ultra Wideband. With ultrafast speeds and ultralow latency, 5G Ultra Wideband will enable developers to build latency-sensitive applications for mobile end-users and wireless edge devices.

  • 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 our network security optimized and up to date.

  • Get started with ThingSpace in three simple steps:

  • Build edge devices with ThingSpace.

    The ThingSpace Ready program provides the tools, resources and support to help you accelerate development of edge devices and get them to market faster. You can upgrade your existing devices with wireless connectivity modules, or start building from scratch with our development kit.
