Verizon to offer 5G network edge computing with AWS Wavelength
Yesterday at AWS re:Invent, Amazon Web Services and Verizon announced a 5G edge computing partnership that will bring the power of the cloud closer to mobile and connected devices at the edge of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network. Through the partnership, AWS will be extending its cloud to 5G networks, allowing developers to run latency-sensitive programs on mobile and connected devices. Developers will be able to use the service, called AWS Wavelength, with Verizon 5G Edge to deliver a wide range of latency-sensitive use cases like machine learning inference at the edge, autonomous industrial equipment, smart cars and cities, Internet of Things (IoT) and augmented and virtual reality. According to a press release, Verizon 5G Edge provides mobile edge computing and an efficient high-volume connection between users, devices, and applications, and AWS Wavelength lets customers deploy the parts of an application that require ultra-low latency to the edge of the network and then seamlessly connect back to the full range of cloud services running in AWS.
