Verizon Business takes IoT connectivity global

Tami Erwin of Verizon Business

Enterprises can now benefit from global Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity from Verizon Business for mobile assets in 170 countries worldwide. This includes permanent roaming options in North America and Western Europe all on a single SIM.

This global coverage enables organisations to manage a vast array of IoT devices including asset trackers, industrial gateways and sensors via ThingSpace, Verizon’s self-service IoT platform.

Faster, more secure, and more affordable cellular connectivity is paving the way for the tremendous growth of IoT devices. Industry analysts IDC estimate that 150,000+ IoT devices will connect every minute by 2025.

“The Internet of Things is changing the way businesses monitor devices and increasing the strategic business value of the data collected,” says Tami Erwin, CEO at Verizon Business. “The number of IoT devices is growing exponentially and organisations prefer to align with a trusted technology partner who can offer the technical expertise and geo-scale they require. Our global IoT connectivity services are all underpinned by Verizon’s years of expertise and industry leading ThingSpace platform, not to mention a path to evolving into 5G Massive IoT.”

Verizon’s IoT device connectivity operates via a partner ecosystem and is available globally to US multinational companies with fixed or mobile connectivity requirements. Organisations can deploy devices with permanent roaming across Canada, the UK and more than 10 European markets.
