Amazon partners with Verizon on cloud to 5G networks and FOX on media content delivery

Amazon.com Inc on Tuesday (December 3) said it was extending its cloud to 5G networks in partnership with Verizon Communications Inc, so developers can run latency-sensitive programs on mobile and connected devices.

The program, called AWS Wavelength, is one of several new ways that Amazon Web Services is pushing its cloud into new territory. 

At the company’s annual re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, the world’s top cloud provider also announced new infrastructure called Local Zones, debuting in Los Angeles, that will help nearby users run speed-intensive applications like gaming.

Amazon also said it had designed a more powerful data center processor chip, as it looks to pose a serious challenge to the domination of market leaders Intel Corp and Advanced Micro Devices Inc .

Amazon Web Services and FOX signed a multi-year strategic collaboration agreement to build a 8k capable media platform to create live and on demand content across traditional and digital platforms, the company said.
