PCI Eligible AWS services deployed in AWS Wavelength can now store, process, or transmit cardholder data (CHD) or sensitive authentication data (SAD), including merchants, processors, acquirers, issuers, and service providers. PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a proprietary information security standard administered by the PCI Security Standard Council. Many Wavelength use cases like interactive live video streams, AR/VR, and real-time gaming require in-app purchases. Starting today, you can use AWS Wavelength to build, deploy, and run applications that store and use sensitive payment card data in compliance with PCI DSS. 

Wavelength brings 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. AWS Wavelength minimizes the latency and network hops required to connect to an application hosted in AWS from 5G devices. For more information please visit the AWS Wavelength webpage.
