With the rapid growth of the wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) market, the Verizon 4G LTE network powers a number of applications that help businesses optimize operations, as well as create new solutions and revenue streams across multiple industries, including manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, public safety and more.
