Verizon Teams with Microsoft to Offer Private 5G Mobile Edge Computing

Published On: November 2, 2020Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Verizon is joining forces with Microsoft to create new ways for enterprises to accelerate the delivery of 5G applications. The alliance leverages Verizon’s on-site 5G Edge network with Azure edge services in an effort to enable ultra-low latency to support functions like computer vision, augmented, mixed and virtual reality, digital twins or machine learning.

“We have built a network that provides real-world, 5G-enabled solutions today,” said Rima Qureshi, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer at Verizon. “By bringing together Verizon’s 5G network and on-site 5G Edge platform with Microsoft’s expertise in cloud services, we will enable the development of the next generation technologies everyone has been envisioning.”

“By leveraging Verizon’s 5G network integrated with Microsoft’s cloud and edge capabilities, developers and businesses can benefit from fast, secure and reliable connections to deliver seamless digital experiences from massive industrial IoT workloads to precision medicine,” said Yousef Khalidi, corporate vice president Azure for Operators at Microsoft.

Verizon claims its 5G Ultra Wideband network enables throughput at least 25 times faster than today’s 4G networks; delivers ultra-low latency; and offers very high bandwidth. The technology is expected to eventually enable 100 times larger data volumes than 4G.
