We're hosting our third ever 5G Edge Lightning Talks: an opportunity to bring together 5G Edge practitioners to share best practices, lessons learned, & practical advice for developers hoping to get started!
Join us for our third-ever 5G Edge Lightning Talks: a community-driven forum led by developers, architects, & engineers who all share a passion for building applications at the network edge. In this event, hear from a variety of thought leaders about their experiences with building on Verizon 5G Edge with AWS Wavelength, architecture best practices, or real-world applications in-use by customers today. Each speaker will receive 10 minutes for their session followed by a brief audience Q&A.
By embedding AWS compute & storage services at the edge of Verizon 5G network, Verizon 5G Edge with AWS Wavelength enables developers to serve edge computing use cases that require low latency like machine learning inference at the edge, accelerating video streams at the edge, remote video production at the edge, C-V2X, Internet of Things (IoT), & game streaming.
This event is intended for developers, DevOps engineers, or SREs interested in learning more about how to build & deploy interactive applications at the network edge.
