Generating new revenue for communication service providers and enterprises edge applications and services represent an entirely new market opportunity where enterprises and communication service providers will come together and benefit from an entirely new class of high bandwidth, ultra-low latency applications and revenue generating services all fueled by 5G networks.
DISH is deploying the first standalone, cloud-based 5G open radio access network (O-RAN) in the United States with the help of AWS, VMware and Intel.
DISH will connect all of its hardware and network management resources through the cloud to enable secure, rapid scaling and innovation as well as on-demand responsiveness to customers’ wireless needs.
Given this marks the first time that a 5G network will be run in the cloud, DISH will achieve agile and cost-effective operations while seeking to redefine the practical applications of 5G.
As DISH deploys its network, the company is partnering with vendors offering cloud native technology, bringing them together on AWS and orchestrated by VMware to provide DISH customers greater flexibility and control of their 5G-enabled solutions.
