Develop what's next.

The world is becoming more interconnected and M2M devices are appearing everywhere. Traffic lights talk to sensors and cameras. Remote ATM’s talk to financial data centers. A flatbed truck updates its location constantly to a fleet management control room. So go ahead. Be cutting edge. Get in on the M2M fun.

M2M is leading the way.

Anytime information needs to travel wirelessly, there’s an opportunity for a device developer. M2M device makers can awaken a world of possibility, every day, and can improve the lives of millions. They improve healthcare, make our cars and trucks more efficient, our homes and businesses more secure and our energy grid smarter.

Develop with the best.

A device is only as good as the network it runs on. At Verizon Wireless, we've created America's most reliable network by investing billions and constantly testing our signal. When you certify your device with us, you get the strength of our network and the reliability needed to be successful. So let's get started and make your device talk.

Change the game.

Today's businesses operate under competitive pressures unimagined ten years ago. By integrating your assets into your enterprise resource planning and leveraging M2M software applications, you can uncover opportunities for operational enhancement, asset management, cost-cutting, new capacities and extending your value chain like never before.

Make data sing.

Bring your company metrics to life with always-on sensors and real-time tracking of key performance indices. With M2M solutions, you can reduce uncertainty and control capital expenditure. Our products will help you get control of your data and integrate devices and device management into your resource planning to leverage business data to your advantage.

Connect and compete.

Whether you're managing decentralized assets or automating localized services, M2M solutions can bring the power of Verizon Wireless to your business and create new opportunities while optimizing your current operations. Contact us today to get your company started so you can connect and compete.

Dream it. Code it.

The M2M ecosystem is experiencing explosive growth, driven by device makers and new
connected platforms. M2M software developers are the dream-it-and-code-it powerhouses behind this transformation. From billing and operational support systems to next-generation process optimization,
the applications that developers design today will manage tomorrow’s network infrastructure and impact future customer relations.

Create and integrate.

Finely tuned M2M applications complete the connection between reporting systems and hard assets on the ground. Application developers find new paths through wireless sensor networks and automate data in new ways, bringing M2M devices
to life and stimulating business processes like never before. M2M application platforms integrate devices into the system, so they don’t just create
connections, they combine parts into
something stronger.

Get started now.

Data normalization, diagnostics, creating rules engines and interfacing are just a few of the tools motivating the M2M revolution. Whatever an M2M application developer wants to accomplish, the Verizon Developer Community can help. We
provide a place to create, certify and sell your best M2M applications.
