What happens in this city usually stays in this city, but not when the news is this good.

Today, Verizon and AWS announced the launch of mobile edge computing (MEC) capabilities in Las Vegas, NV. Businesses and developers can now build and deploy applications using Verizon 5G Edge with AWS Wavelength. That brings our total number of 5G Edge cities to eight across the U.S.

With MEC, developers can build and deliver enhanced experiences and serve performance-critical use cases that take advantage of storage and processing power closer to 5G mobile users. That includes advanced solutions in industries as varied as healthcare, transportation and sports.

Businesses are happy. Innovators are happy. Even the Elvis impersonators are All Shook Up. Las Vegas, welcome to our Mobile Edge Computing family!
