Bring AWS services to the edge of the Verizon 5G network.
Verizon 5G Edge brings together Verizon’s ultrafast, ultralow latency 5G Ultra Wideband* network and AWS; industry-leading cloud services to enable the creation of next-generation applications.
5G Edge leverages AWS Wavelength, a new type of AWS infrastructure. Applications are deployed to Wavelength Zones—AWS infrastructure deployments that embed AWS compute and storage services at the edge of the Verizon 5G network—and seamlessly access the breadth of AWS services in the region.
This reduces the extra network hops to the internet, thereby avoiding a transit penalty of 100 milliseconds or more, helping to ensure substantial enhancements in application performance and end-user quality of experience.
That means developers can build applications that are experientially immersive, with super-fast response requirements, such as game and live video streaming, machine learning inference at the edge, and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR).
To start developing in AWS Wavelength, simply extend your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to one or more Wavelength Zones and then use AWS resources to build, run, secure, manage, and scale your applications.
*5G Ultra Wideband available only in parts of select cities.
