Verizon Connect Reveal

The Verizon Connect Reveal feed type in ArcGIS Velocity creates a built-in HTTP endpoint that can be used to receive GPS Push Service messages from Verizon Connect Reveal. For details on Verizon Connect Reveal and the GPS Push Service, see GPS Push Service in the Verizon documentation.

Examples

  • A shipping company uses Verizon Connect Reveal to track their fleet of vehicles. They collect the GPS Push Service data into Velocity to maintain real-time situational awareness about their vehicles and driver behavior.
  • A public works department uses Verizon Connect Reveal to track the vehicles that belong to the department. They store this information and run a big data analytic at the end of each week to generate a report that shows the vehicles that need maintenance based on odometer readings.

Usage notes

  • The Verizon Connect Reveal feed only processes events with the GPS Push Service schema defined by Verizon.
  • The Verizon Connect Reveal feed supports configuring key fields, removing unwanted fields, and adjusting field names. Changing data types or adding new fields is not supported because the GPS Push Service schema required by Verizon cannot be modified.
  • Once the feed is created, the URL in the HTTP Endpoint Path parameter is available on the feed details page. This is the URL to use for data that is pushed from Verizon Connect Reveal.
  • After configuring feed connection parameters, see Configure input data to learn how to define the schema and the key parameters.
