Today, we are announcing the availability of two new AWS Wavelength Zones on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network in Dallas and Miami. Wavelength Zones are now available in seven cities, including the five previously announced cities of Boston, San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, Washington DC, and Atlanta. 

AWS Wavelength and Verizon 5G Edge bring the power of the world’s leading cloud closer to mobile and connected devices at the edge of the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband network. Wavelength embeds AWS compute and storage services at the edge of communications service providers’ 5G networks while providing seamless access to cloud services running in an AWS Region. By doing so, AWS Wavelength minimizes the latency and network hops required to connect from a 5G device to an application hosted on AWS.

Among the many ultra-low latency use cases that Wavelength enables are 5G applications that deliver interactive and immersive experiences, like game streaming, virtual reality, and in-venue experiences for live events. Companies like YVBR are using AWS Wavelength to offer innovative in-venue experiences for live events. Summit Tech uses AWS Wavelength to optimize video quality, instantly deliver high-quality of service experiences on a by-customer basis, and create more immersive content with much less reliance on end users’ hardware. Other early adopter use cases on AWS Wavelength span the domain of autonomous driving and connected vehicles. Savari’s V2X and Cellular-Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) systems leverage AWS Wavelength to deliver applications that make drivers aware of the latest road conditions so that they can make split-second decisions to prevent accidents.
