ThingSpace has all of the resources to make your IoT vision a reality. From IoT 101 to help you get started to device specific guides and API documentation, we have all the resources you need.
Determining which network technology to build your solution depends on the requirements of your application:
NB-IoT is an up-and-coming solution that is ideal for simple sensor applications which require intermittent data transmission in a static environment.
Use cases typically have a limited set of commands and actions like turning on and off controls.
Cat-M1 is appropriate for more complex designs requiring real-time communication.
More complex data sets that do not require constant streaming, video, or two-way audio.
3G, 4G and the up-and-coming 5G should be considered for applications requiring the fastest data transmission speeds and reliability
Devices that can have short bursts of data that require large bandwidth pipes, streaming video, two-way audio, or a consistent data streams over extended periods of time.
Use this guide to help you decide whether you should build a device or buy an existing solution.
If you need fewer than 5,000 devices, buying an existing solution is your best bet.
Verizon certified end products
If you’ll deploy more than 5,000 devices, building makes more sense long-term.
Verizon certified modules
Depending on where you are in the development of your hardware, we can guide you on the path to faster prototype testing.
