Today, we are announcing the availability of two new AWS Wavelength Zones on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network in Nashville, TN and Tampa, FL. Wavelength Zones are now available in 19 major cities in the US, including the previously announced cities of Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York City, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC.
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 makes possible are 5G applications for smart manufacturing, industrial automation, autonomous driving, and applications that deliver interactive and immersive experiences, like game streaming, virtual reality, and in-venue experiences for live events.
