Mark Bartolomeo, Vice President, Connected Solutions & Internet of Things, Verizon

Verizon is expanding its Internet of Things (IoT) efforts across multiple fronts this year, including opening up its IoT platform to third-party developers and technology service providers.

During this webinar, Telco Transformation Editor Mike Robuck will talk with Verizon's Mark Bartolomeo, Vice President of Connected Solutions and Internet of Things, and Heavy Reading Senior Analyst Steve Bell about the challenges for the different IoT uses cases, Verizon's IoT core network, security concerns and the building blocks for IoT services and platforms.

Verizon launched its IoT platform, which is called "ThingSpace," in late 2015. There are currently more than 5,000 developers using ThingSpace. With ThingSpace, Verizon is addressing some of the biggest IoT challenges in agriculture, healthcare, sustainability, public safety and urban development.

Verizon will offer its cloud-based APIs on ThingSpace for beta testing in 2016, and it's also adding over-the-top security at the edge of a network to help developers better protect devices and applications regardless of the service provider or the type of transport that is used. Verizon is also developing an IoT core network to provision IoT use cases that can run on low power and low bandwidth.
