AWS has embedded AWS compute and storage services at the edge of 5G with Verizon's 5G Network. Developers can now leverage machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), and video/game streaming requiring low latency edge processing with AWS Wavelength, notes the announcement.

Executive Opinion

Vice President Compute Services, AWS, Matt Garman, said, "With Wavelength, we bring 5G and cloud together to give our customers the powerful new capability to run cloud services consistently within a few milliseconds of mobile end-users. This is a game changer for developers that is going to unlock a whole new generation of applications and services. We are really excited to see our customers innovate with these unique new capabilities that they did not have access to before."

CTO of Verizon, Kyle Malady, said, "Continuing our tradition of bringing new technology to market first we are excited to launch a mobile edge compute service -- integrating our 5G Edge platform with Wavelength to allow developers to build new categories of applications and network cloud experiences. Bringing together the full capabilities of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network and AWS, we unlock the full potential of our 5G services for customers to create applications and solutions with the fastest speeds and ultra-low latency."

Verizon's 5G Edge and AWS partnership

AWS has partnered with Verizon to bring AWS Wavelength and service is available in Boston and the San Francisco Bay Area. AWS intends to introduce other areas in 2020.

The AWS presence at the 5G edge networks allows developers to leverage the low latency provided by 5G networks.

AWS is also working with Vodafone, SK Telecom, and KDDI, to launch Wavelength Zones across Europe, South Korea, and Japan, notes the announcement.
