What you need to know:
For years, technologists have wanted the flexibility to choose network attributes and optimize the back-end architecture based on application requirements. Today’s innovative applications such as computer vision, internet of things (IoT), robotics, autonomous vehicles, and enhanced sports and stadium experiences, are heavily dependent on specific network attributes. The capability to select Quality of Service with minimal latency, edge discovery, and location attributes will help developers build performance sensitive applications, map to, and operate from the closest
“Developers & Enterprises who utilize our 5G Network and Edge Services are able to orient their applications to deliver low latency use cases for their customers,” said
“We hear from customers about their need to build emerging use cases like IoT and robotics, which require consistent low-latency for an uninterrupted end customer experience,” said
The new APIs are available in a beta version for select customers and can be accessed through Verizon or
Customers taking advantage of Edge Discovery & Quality of Service (QoS) APIs
One customer positioned to take advantage of this advancing technology is Holo-Light. Holo-Light specializes in unlocking the full potential of augmented and virtual reality in the enterprise market by providing advanced visualization and performance through XR streaming technology. “Quality of service and low latency are critical in ensuring a seamless experience for Holo-Light’s customers. By leveraging AWS Wavelength and Verizon’s Dynamic Quality of Service, we can ensure that our customers receive the highest level of quality and reliability for their XR experiences, allowing higher quality graphics, more realistic interactions, and a better overall experience,” said Florian Haspinger, CEO of Holo-Light.
Another customer focused on high throughput and low latency use cases is HarperDB, a distributed global application. The ability to dynamically route workloads based on geography through AWS Wavelength on Verizon will continue to allow HarperDB to improve application performance while dramatically reducing cost and improving customer experiences. This flexibility is critical for HarperDB customers like Edison Interactive, whose platform relies on the work HarperDB, Verizon, and AWS are doing to reduce latency by up to 250x in Edison’s digital out-of-home Golf Cart experience across 30,000 golf carts nationwide.
Verizon’s Mobile Edge Compute
Verizon 5G Edge brings together Verizon’s ultrafast, low latency 5G Ultra Wideband network and AWS’s cloud services to enable the creation of next-generation applications. Applications are deployed to AWS Wavelength Zones and seamlessly access the breadth of AWS services in the region. That means developers can build applications that are experientially immersive, with fast response requirements, such as game and live video streaming, machine learning inference at the edge, and augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR).
AWS Wavelength offers numerous features and options—AWS Graviton processor-based, memory-optimized, and general-purpose Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) volumes—to help customers choose the most suitable compute and storage respectively for their workloads. Additionally, Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) help customers deploy applications on AWS Wavelength Zones and across broader AWS Regions and the edge.
Verizon 5G Edge with AWS Wavelength is currently available in 19 locations including
