T-Mobile and AWS are partnering to pair T-Mobile’s 5G Advanced Network Solutions portfolio with AWS cloud-based services and pre-integrated applications. The integration will make it easier for customers to customise and deploy 5G edge computing. For customers engaging in digital transformation, it will provide far greater connectivity and computing power at reduced costs.

The two companies are also jointly developing use case-specific offerings as part of the new Integrated Private Wireless on AWS programme. Typical examples if these use cases include monitoring worker safety on remote industrial campuses, performing predictive maintenance on manufacturing equipment and ensuring faster aircraft turnaround times at the airport.

“T-Mobile and AWS are coming together to do what industry-leading companies do best – make things easier for customers,” said Callie Field, President, T-Mobile Business Group. “Businesses need a combination of connectivity and compute that fits into their current infrastructure. With our flexible 5G network deployment options and AWS’s cloud compute capabilities, we can quickly provide customers a right-sized solution to make their applications – new and existing – perform like never before.”

“AWS and T-Mobile share a common desire to work backwards from customer feedback to deliver innovation,” said Adolfo Hernandez, Vice President, Telco Industry at AWS. “One of the biggest challenges in galvanising industries and revenue for 5G services has been the lack of flexible 5G solutions that meet the compute and connectivity needs for customers. Together with T-Mobile’s innovative suite of 5G Advanced Network Solutions and our Integrated Private Wireless Program, we have the power to meet customers where they are.”
