DISH Builds First Cloud-Based Customizable 5G Network on AWS


In this video, DISH executive vice president and chief network officer Marc Rouanne shares how DISH is using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build the first cloud-based 5G network from the ground up, creating a user-defined network of networks that will support technology that has never been seen before. Rouanne describes how AWS is helping DISH forge a new path in the wireless industry, creating networks that are customizable by speed, latency, and data requirements. DISH is using artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions on AWS to connect services and machines through edge computing, driving automation that lays the groundwork for autonomous vehicles, climate change monitoring, and other technologies of the future.


We can create a nationwide replica in the network in days and scale it up and down at will, which would have taken years on a classical 4G or 5G network. We can literally move the software around in hours, which would have taken years in existing networks. Looking ahead, this is going to be the enabler of technology that people have not even imagined yet, and there is so much potential—and I'm excited that AWS is right alongside us in this journey."
