5G Operational Readiness: AWS' Strategy Continues to Evolve
This IDC Market Perspective provides an update on Amazon Web Services' (AWS') evolving profile considering several portfolio updates at MWC 2023 that significantly expand the company's focus on communications service providers (SPs). IDC highlights key updates and their significance to comms SPs looking to enhance their focus on network automation and orchestration as part of their 5G adoption strategies.
"The more the market evolves to cloud-native architectures, the more AWS sees the market coming to it. The company continues to sharpen its focus on comms SP opportunities by addressing the complexity that comes with cloud-native network planning, fulfillment, service assurance, and overarching automation," says John Byrne, research VP, Comms SP Operations and Automation at IDC. "Initiatives like AWS Clean Rooms now bring the potential to utilize Amazon's massive customer data sets to help comms SPs build 5G B2B2X developer ecosystems."
