Singtel, Optus expand 5G ecosystems to boost startups

The expansion will help enterprises to leverage AWS Outposts.

Singtel and Optus will be expanding their 5G ecosystems to enable enterprises and startups to develop low latency 5G solutions on their Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) infrastructures.

The MEC will leverage the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Outposts and will enable 5G solutions like robotics, drones, autonomous vehicles, and artificial intelligence to operate at ultra-low latency, closer to the end-users.

AWS Outposts is a solution that enables service providers to operate the full suite of AWS tools and services on their premises. The MECs with AWS Outposts can be accessed from the closest Singtel site to help businesses seamlessly operate their applications that use AWS tools and require ultra-low latency data processing.

Singtel can also deploy the MEC with AWS Outposts to the customer’s location for trials involving confidential data that the customer prefers to retain within their premises.

Bill Chang, CEO of Group Enterprise at Singtel, said that their 5G ecosystem partners provides an essential one-stop hub for the 5G and edge computing needs of enterprises and startups.

“As we gear up to launch and lead 5G adoption in Singapore and in Australia through Optus, we will deepen our collaboration with AWS to expand beyond the two countries to the region. This will enhance our portfolio of 5G edge computing apps to empower enterprises with the means to accelerate their digital transformation,” Chang added.
