Amazon Web Services Announces Private 5G Managed Service

Amazon Web Services announced a managed service that it said will help organizations scale and set up private 5G mobile networks.

The company said that its AWS Private 5G managed service will help organizations set up networks in facilities within days instead of months. The company said that users identify where they want to build the network and the capacity needed and then AWS delivers and maintains the equipment for the network, including the small cell radio units, servers, 5G core and radio access network (RAN) software and subscriber identity modules.

AWS noted that more organizations are needing to collect, analyze and transfer large amounts of data due to the large number of sensors and other devise used. On-premises 5G can help assist in that processing and management of the data due to better coverage, lower latency and higher bandwidth that the technology provides, the company said.

“Many of our customers want to leverage the power of 5G to establish their own private networks on premises, but they tell us that the current approaches make it time-consuming, difficult and expensive to set up and deploy private networks,” said David Brown, vice president, EC2 at AWS. “With AWS Private 5G, we’re extending hybrid infrastructure to customers’ 5G networks to make it simple, quick, and inexpensive to set up a private 5G network. Customers can start small and scale on-demand, pay as they go, and monitor and manage their network from the AWS console.”

AWS said that it so far has had three companies — DISH Network, Koch companies and Amazon Fulfillment Centers — sign up for the service so far.
