Verizon and AWS partner on 5G edge cloud computing

Verizon and Amazon Web Services are collaborating to bring 5G edge computing in a service that aims to bring more machine learning to applications and cut latency.

The collaboration will bring AWS cloud to mobile and connected devices at the edge of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network.

Verizon will leverage AWS’s new service, AWS Wavelength, to give developers the ability to deploy applications that require ultra-low latency to mobile devices using 5G.

“We are first in the world to launch Mobile Edge Compute — deeply integrating Verizon’s 5G Edge platform with Wavelength to allow developers to build new categories of applications and network cloud experiences built-in ways we can’t even imagine yet,” said Hans Vestberg, CEO and chairman of Verizon.

“Bringing together the full capabilities of Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband and AWS, the world’s leading cloud with the broadest and deepest services portfolio, we unlock the full potential of our 5G services for customers to create applications and solutions with the fastest speeds, improved security, and ultra-low latency.”
