Verizon’s ThingSpace is a leading platform of connectivity services for the IoT. It is designed as a one‑stop shop to help businesses and OEMs to create, test, and connect IoT solutions.
u‑blox and Verizon have collaborated closely to introduce the u‑blox SARA‑R410M LTE Cat M1 module as a ThingSpace Ready device. ThingSpace Ready devices make it easier and more cost‑effective for developers to certify and manage products on Verizon’s network.
In 2017, Verizon was first to market with its nationwide commercial 4G LTE Cat M1 network spanning 2.57 million square miles. u‑blox and Verizon have been working together closely from the beginning to bring LTE Cat M1 technology to IoT devices around the United States.
u‑blox’s SARA‑R4 product series was among the first modules operating on Verizon’s newly launched LTE Cat M1 network.
The u‑blox SARA‑R410M is an ultra‑compact low‑power wide‑area (LPWA) module with global configurability based on a single hardware version and flexible mode selection for both LTE Cat M1 and NB1. With SARA‑R410M businesses and OEMs can simplify diverse deployments and achieve significant operational efficiencies.
Via ThingSpace, developers also have access to competitively priced SIM and module options, free certification, credits for device activations and access to platform tools for lifecycle functions like billing, connectivity management and diagnostic support. ThingSpace can support connectivity via roaming agreements in more than 200 countries.
The SARA‑R410M modules is suitable for IoT applications that require enhanced in‑building range or long battery life, including those for the smart home, smart city, security systems, industrial monitoring, and smart metering. It is also ideal for mobile applications, such as asset tracking, telematics, and fleet management.
Using the ThingSpace platform, developers can also leverage Verizon’s solutions targeting utilities, transportation and healthcare providers with products like Networkfleet, GridWide, VerizonShare, hum and Asset Tracker.
