From hotels to hospitals to universities, enterprises everywhere can relate to the longstanding problem of poor in-building public cellular service coverage. Meanwhile, they want to simplify their infrastructure. But with separate public and private wireless deployments, they’ve been moving in the wrong direction.
5G cellular technology has come into the spotlight in recent years, revolutionizing how businesses operate and creating new opportunities for innovation, and Amazon Web Services Inc. has stepped up to the challenge.
Ahead of the MWC 2023 conference next week in Barcelona, Amazon Web Services today announced two new offerings to help telecommunications companies modernize their networks.
Years ago, the value chain for business services was clear. Telcos provided network services, software vendors offered applications, compute companies took care of servers and so on. The rise of cloud has blurred the lines and there is perhaps no industry that has been more disrupted than telecom. Over-the-top services, the cloud companies and other trends has relegated the telcos to being the “pipes” with little ability to differentiate one’s self.
Private wireless is expected to be a hot topic at next week’s Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. Ahead of the show, startup Celona Inc. today announced a portfolio of indoor and outdoor private 5G products for the global markets.
Edge computing is at the peak of the hype cycle right now. In simple terms, it refers to computing devices and applications at the network edge. ZK Research defines this edge as anything that is not a centralized compute node; it includes campus, branch, Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and numerous emerging “edges.”
