Announcing the General Availability of AWS Wavelength in Boston and the San Francisco Bay Area

Today, we are announcing the general availability of AWS Wavelength on Verizon’s 5G Network in Boston and the San Francisco Bay Area, beginning in San Jose today and extending to the rest of the Bay Area in the coming weeks. Wavelength embeds 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. Developers can now deploy use cases that require ultra-low latency, such as inference at the edge, connected cars, smart cities and factories, Internet of Things (IoT), and interactive live video and game streaming.
