Telecommunications at re:Invent 2020

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is powering the future of telecommunications. Leading communications service providers (CSPs) run more workloads on AWS than any other cloud provider. By partnering with AWS, CSPs not only accelerate their data center consolidation and migration to the cloud, but monetize their path to 5G by offering customers next-generation capabilities in mobile edge computing and IoT. With a rich catalog of cloud-deployable partner solutions, AWS enhances the customer experience through machine learning and AI and accelerates business process agility to drive operational efficiency. Now, more than ever, CSPs can leverage the most advanced technologies on the market to create new revenue streams and focus on what sets their business apart.
