Why wireless connectivity?

Wireless connectivity gives IoT developers the most flexibility in design and implementation of their solutions in several key areas:

Coverage

Wireless connectivity gives you the flexibility to create mobile solutions without worrying about losing connection. Verizon's 4G LTE network covers over 98% of Americans and now, low-power wide-area (LPWA) technologies such as LTE-M and NB-IoT expand connectivity even further to underground and rural environments.

Bandwidth

Verizon 4G LTE wireless broadband is capable of downloads speeds between 5 and 12 Mbps (Megabits per second). That's 10x faster than 3G.

The future is 5G Ultra Wideband. With ultra-fast speeds and ultra-low latency, 5G will give you the ability to create solutions with near real-time data processing.

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.

AWS and Verizon are partnering to bring the power of the world’s leading cloud closer to mobile end users and connected devices to unlock a wide range of transformative applications that leverage the advanced capabilities of Verizon’s 5G network and the AWS Cloud.

Security

By default, wireless connectivity data is encrypted and Verizon has cybersecurity experts dedicated to keeping the network security updated. Other types of connectivity, such as Wi-Fi, are localized, so it relies on the individual network owner to encrypt data and update security protocols. Technologies such as Wi-Fi are also more susceptible to cybercriminals who can more easily create “fake” duplicate Wi-Fi networks.

Flexibile technology

Wireless connectivity gives you several options so you can build on the technology that best works for your use case:

Narrowband IoT

(NB-IoT) provides low data rates with deep coverage

CAT M1

Provides higher bandwidth in a low-power wide-area network

4G LTE

Offers the highest bandwidth currently available everywhere and full support of voice over LTE

5G Ultra Wideband

Brings the promise of tomorrow, with the highest bandwidth and lowest lag time

The nation's best network

Whether you need the fastest data speeds available from our 4G LTE and 5G Ultra Wideband networks or if you’re looking for lower-cost and lower-power solutions such as NB-IoT or Cat M1, Verizon has you covered. Our massive network means more of your things stay connected to keep your business running smoothly.
