AWS and Verizon announcement at re:Invent
World's first 5G Mobile Edge Compute
There were many announcements today from Andy Jassy but the one that surprised me the most was a partnership with AWS and Verizon that is probably the first of its kind. I haven't had time to dig into all the details yet because it was just announced today but I see a strong opportunity for it to change the game when discussing edge connected devices.
Adding 5G to edge devices with low latency connections to the cloud will change what kind of real time data can be streamed to the AWS infrastructure. There will be new applications and functionality brought to everything from gaming, to IOT devices and virtual reality. A new era is dawning!
