Verizon Looks to Accelerate IoT with ThingSpace Platform

In addition to the ThingSpace platform, Verizon officials said the carrier has created a core network within its LTE architecture that is optimized for low-payload IoT devices that is less costly and easier to use than such networks like WiFi, Bluetooth and ZigBee, all of which demand some level of customer intervention to use, Lanman said. The new network core, which will launch in the first quarter of 2016, will cut in half the cost of connecting to a 4G network, he said, adding that Verizon will halve the cost again in 2016.

With ThingSpace, Verizon officials are looking to bring all the tools developers need into a single place, creating an easy on-ramp onto the Internet of things, Lanman said. ThingSpace is a self-service Web interface that can be used to manage entire IoT environments: developers, customers and partners can use it to create applications, manage devices and market their services. At the same time, Verizon can use the platform to launch its own integrated vertical offerings, officials said. ThingSpace will start off offering hundreds of APIs to aid in application development, and Verizon is working to grow that into the thousands in 2016, Lanman said.
