Verizon’s ThingSpace, the company’s IoT platform designed to help businesses and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) create, test, connect and bring IoT ideas to market, recently announced a new program and set of services called ThingSpace Ready.


The new services reportedly are designed to help device developers build, certify and manage devices on Verizon’s leading network, easier and more cost-effectively. It can make it easier for developers to acquire more affordable cellular modules, IoT SIMs and hardware design services via new partnerships with Bittium, G+D Mobile Security,  Mobilogix, Quectel, Sequans and u-blox, with additional partners to be announced.

ThingSpace Ready builds on Verizon’s platform and connectivity services for IoT, including its nationwide commercial 4G LTE CATM1 network designed specifically for IoT. ThingSpace supports connectivity in more than 200 countries & territories via global agreements.

“We’ve been a leader in the industry around IoT platform and connectivity services with the successful launch of ThingSpace in 2015, and the first nationwide CATM1 network for IoT in 2017.  Now, we’re building on those tools with key partnerships and services to help make it easier and more affordable than ever to develop and launch cellular-enabled IoT solutions in the marketplace” said Steve Szabo, head of global IoT products and solutions, Verizon. “We’ve created a one-stop-shop for IoT and are providing access like never before,” he added.

ThingSpace Ready partners specialize in developing secure and reliable connectivity solutions, designing LTE chipsets and software tech to authenticate and protect devices and data. The program’s easy onramp provides competitively priced SIM and module options, free certification, credits for device activations and access to platform tools for lifecycle functions like billing, connectivity management and diagnostic support.
