Locating your devices can be a mission-critical aspect of your IoT solution.
Verizon’s ThingSpace platform enables location-based services to easily track device location and enable geolocation services for your application. Our Device Location Services allow you to:
Running in the cloud on the ThingSpace platform and over the Verizon 3G and 4G LTE networks, our Device Location Services can help you:
We’ve got you covered with our extensive global network. View our global coverage map.
You don’t need a high degree of accuracy to locate your normally fixed assets. Fleets of ATMs, kiosks and vending machines are some of the ideal IoT applications for our Device Location Services. You can locate your entire deployed fleet within 1,000 meters of accuracy. For many IoT applications involving fixed assets or assets with limited movement, this granularity is more than enough accuracy for business decisions. Then, you can use this location data to create location reports or maps for your 3G and 4G IoT devices.
Our Device Location Services gives you access to over-the-air representational state transfer (REST) APIs to help you create IoT applications that take advantage of device location data.
Our device location APIs are simple to use and integrate easily into your IoT solutions. They can help you extract latitude and longitude coordinates, and add device location data to mapping apps or other mapping APIs that your IoT solution app may incorporate. You can also gather device location data for use in business reports, technical troubleshooting guides and web pages.`
