Update IoT devices on your schedule.

Reduce high-touch truck rolls and let ThingSpace Software Management take the pain out of managing your IoT devices’ software in the field. ThingSpace Software Management hosts the software in our cloud and uses firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) technology to update the devices with the latest software. With a simple-to-use software campaign management experience, the control is easily in your hands.

Avoid downtime and service interruptions by keeping your device baseband software and firmware compliant and up-to-date. The service works with 4G or 5G Internet of Things devices; certified using Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA-DM) and Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) device management protocols. Verizon also offers an HTTP client that can be integrated into the device. Once certified with Verizon, the platform provides the tools and APIs to:

  • Schedule firmware or software upgrades
  • Report software campaign status
  • Manage device licenses.
  • Manage subscriptions.

Optimize your IoT devices and operations.

Running in the cloud and on the ThingSpace platform and over the Verizon 4G or 5G network, our Software Management service can help you:

  • Reduce on-site visit costs and time to market
  • Improve product performance and address security vulnerabilities
  • Reduce software management costs
  • Better compete in the market
  • Manage firmware or software for many devices in one place

You’re in control of every device.

Our Software Management Services gives you access to deliver your over-the-air firmware updates either though our ThingSpace portal or via representational state transfer (REST) APIs.


When new software that’s associated with your devices becomes available, ThingSpace will notify you. Then, you can easily schedule your remote update campaigns at a time that best suits your needs. This puts you in control, so you can ensure your business is uninterrupted.
