Verizon has launched ThingSpace Ready, a new program and set of services designed to help device developers easily and cost effectively build, certify and manage IoT devices on Verizon’s leading network.

ThingSpace Ready alleviates hurdles by making 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 leading platform and connectivity services for IoT, ThingSpace.

As of April 2018, ThingSpace supports connectivity in over 200 countries & territories via global agreements. Now, through carefully curated module, SIM, and design house partnerships, a ThingSpace SDK integrated on modules and incentives when devices are activated on Verizon’s leading network, device development has never been simpler.

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.

Steve Szabo, Head of Global IoT Products and Solutions, Verizon
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.
