KDDI, together with Amazon Web Services, Inc., has announced that "AWS Wavelength", which enables seamless access to cloud services, optimized for multi-access computing applications within the au 5G network, will be available in Tokyo starting on December 16, 2020.
By placing AWS computing and storage services within au 5G network and processing data, AWS Wavelength reduces latency by more than half compared to 4G, enabling ultra-low latency. This characteristic of 5G is ideal for customers exploring new business opportunities offered by 5G. In addition, application developers can deploy next-generation applications and services using the same familiar APIs, tools, and features as AWS.
With this ultra-low latency service, many customers will be able to experience new services using 5G, such as the development and provision of high quality, interactive cloud gaming services in the gaming industry, and the provision of high-quality 4K/8K video streaming services in the entertainment industry.
In preparation for the launch of AWS Wavelength, KDDI, together with the following partners, conducted a demonstration experiment and confirmed its effectiveness as expected.
AWS Wavelength is one of the initiatives under the "KDDI Accelerate 5.0" initiative, which uses 5G to accelerate the realization of "Society 5.0," a sustainable, consumer-centered society that balances economic development and the resolution of social issues.
KDDI is accelerating its efforts to promote digital transformation (DX) for its customers through the utilization of au 5G, and with AWS Wavelength, KDDI is working to create a resilient society that will enable the establishment of new lifestyles for consumers and the resolution of Japan's economic development and social issues.
