Verizon Brings Private Mobile Edge Computing to Enterprises with AWS

Verizon Business and Amazon Web Services (AWS) will be expanding their 5G collaboration to deliver private mobile edge computing (MEC) to enterprise customers in the United States who want a completely dedicated edge computer infrastructure on-premises that enables ultra-low latency, higher levels of security and deeper customization.

The solution will fully integrate Verizon’s Private 5G networks and Private Edge platform with AWS Outposts, a managed service that offers the same AWS infrastructure, services, APIs, and tools to virtualize any datacenter, co-location space or on-premises facility for a consistent hybrid experience.

Verizon enterprise customers can use MEC to deploy real-time enterprise applications like intelligent logistics, predictive maintenance, robotics, factory automation and more to lower costs and improve safety, precision and efficiency. Corning Incorporated, a materials science and advanced manufacturing innovator, will be the first company to leverage this private MEC solution.

MEC running on private networks creates a secure, dedicated computing platform within specific areas such as factories, warehouses and large business campuses. The platform supports unified connectivity, compute and storage, without having the need for the customer to own extensive networking and IT infrastructure. The new, fully managed private MEC solution will support a range of industrial manufacturing applications, such as autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), predictive maintenance, quality assurance, and near real-time monitoring and hazard alerts.

Verizon’s Private 5G Edge platform will give customers a reliable, secure, high-bandwidth, low-latency connection to AWS services, APIs, and tools running on AWS Outposts. Additionally, two smaller AWS Outposts — 1U and 2U form factors — will give customers options to deploy AWS on-premises in space-constrained locations.

The Verizon and AWS edge computing collaboration began with the launch of Verizon 5G Edge with AWS Wavelength. AWS Wavelength extends AWS compute and storage services to the edge of Verizon’s public mobile network and provides seamless access to cloud services running in an AWS region. By doing so, AWS Wavelength minimizes the latency and network hops required to connect from a 5G device to an application hosted on AWS. Since August 2020, the companies have announced the general availability of 5G mobile edge computing via Wavelength Zones in 10 cities across the United States.
