Verizon and AWS off-premises connectivity:

Outposts provides a consistent experience on premises and in the cloud and allows balancing of workloads as needed. Verizon can also provide additional connectivity options to securely connect to external corporate sites as well as the public internet.

Verizon Private 5G Network:

The Verizon Private 5G Network provides the private high bandwidth with the predictable and secure coverage needed to support new latency-sensitive applications and an ever-increasing volume of devices.

End Devices:

Data from a variety of devices is captured and transmitted to the MEC applications via the Private 5G Network.

AWS Outposts:

Co-located on premises with the Verizon Private 5G Network, AWS Outposts provides compute and storage capabilities for low-latency, local data processing and residency—allowing your business to support emerging and innovative applications.

  • Find answers to some of the questions you might have.

What is private MEC? +
    • Private MEC is an edge compute platform that can be deployed where a private on-site 5G or LTE wireless network has been installed for coverage. This allows it to be implemented in almost any location as it is not reliant on public wireless coverage. It provides on-site compute and storage hardware in an “as a service” model. The close proximity of the wireless network and compute resources provide the low latency for those apps that require it.

    • It also provides enhanced security, since data can be stored locally on premises. Private MEC deployments are typically used for IoT solutions which rely on low network latency and real-time data processing, such as automated guided vehicles management, computer vision processing and predictive maintenance.
