Ericsson Delivers Low-Latency Communication with 5G at the Edge Using AWS Outposts
Ericsson is one of the leading providers of information and communication technology to service providers. As 5G network capabilities entered the market and low-latency communication emerged, Ericsson needed to take those benefits to the edge to deliver high-value use cases for its enterprise customers, and it deployed Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions to do so. According to Rishi Bhaskar, head of hyperscale cloud business growth at Ericsson, “We’re able to take advantage of an innovation that AWS has brought to the market in the form of AWS Outposts.” AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience. Ericsson can leverage AWS Outposts with its 5G Core network to bring low-latency capabilities directly to its customers' enterprise networks.
