On today’s episode of Up To Speed, Mariah Scott, Head of Verizon Robotics Business Technology, explains how our partnership between Verizon, Skyward and Parrot, a global drone manufacturer, helped us create the first-of-its-kind, out-of-the-box drone solution in the United States.

Parrot ANAFi Ai is a professional drone with groundbreaking technology that allows developers to make what would once be complex missions a safer and faster experience. As Mariah explained, businesses can now deploy drones remotely and receive near-real-time data thanks to Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

For Skyward customers, the cost of the ANAFI Ai’s connectivity is included with a Skyward subscription.

Thank you to the entire Skyward team for helping us live out the Credo to ensure our technology is moving the world forward and serving our customers in game-changing ways.
