BT taps AWS Wavelength for 5G and 4G mobile edge computing services

BT has tapped AWS Wavelength to deliver 5G and 4G mobile edge computing services to its UK business customers. 

The multi-million-pound investment has already launched in Manchester, with plans to launch a national rollout for the rest of the UK.

The deal will enable high-speed, latency-sensitive and intensive 5G connectivity for BT customers looking to benefit from high-bandwidth IoT use cases in the field. This includes autonomous vehicles, cameras for policing and other public services to help protect communities, live media production for outside broadcast, smart industrial robots, and use in community healthcare.

Alex Tempest, managing director for BT Wholesale said: “As we continue to build best-in-class 5G infrastructure for the UK, launching the AWS Wavelength service for our business and wholesale customers is a hugely important step on our journey – bringing the power of the cloud to the UK’s best network*. It’s set to unlock use cases like IoT cameras to help first responders keep communities safe: a real-life example of using tech to connect for good.
