Amazon launches AWS Private 5G

Amazon launches AWS Private 5G ,AWS initially made public its AWS Private 5G in the early preview at the end of last year however, it’s now available to AWS customers beginning in the U.S. East (Ohio), U.S. East (N. Virginia) and U.S. West (Oregon) regions and plans to expand it globally “in the near future.”

However -This is a major “but” — despite its name, AWS Private 5G currently only supports 4G LTE.

In AWS Private 5G businesses can purchase devices (a radio device) as well as a variety of specially-designed SIM card directly through AWS Then, AWS offers all the software required along with APIs (application programming interfaces) that allow businesses to establish their private mobile networks on site. This includes an AWS Management Console with which users can specify the location they wish to set up their network, as well as the capacity they require, with AWS automatizing the setup and deployment after the user had activated the small cell radios.

Importantly, the AWS-managed network infrastructure works well alongside different AWS services, like the Identity and Access Management ( IAM) service that allows IT to determine the devices and users who can connect to on the network. AWS Private 5G also channels to AWS’ CloudWatch observationability service, which offers insights into the health of the network, among other important information details.

Cost-wise, AWS charges $10 per hour for each radio it installs, and each radio capable of supporting speeds of up to 150 Mbps for as many SIM cards (i.e. individual devices). Additionally, AWS will bill for all data transferred to the internet, billed at Amazon’s standard EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) prices.

Thus, Amazon is promising industries such as smart factories and other places (remote and otherwise) that require high bandwidth -immediate 5G that is localized, putting them on its cloud infrastructure, in which the standard costs are in place.

Private vs public

It’s obvious that 5G has the capability to revolutionize many industries and is the basis for everything, from robots to self-driving vehicles as well as virtual reality and more. However, public 5G networks, which are the network that most people who have devices with 5G capabilities currently rely on, are limited to restricted coverage and bandwidth could be shared by millions of users. Additionally businesses have no control over the network even if they are within reach from the networks. That’s why private 5G networks are a desirable option, especially for businesses that have mission-critical applications that require constant data transmissions at a low rate.

AWS Private 5G utilizes Citizen Broadband Radio Service ( CBRS) CBRS is which is a shared 3.5 GHz spectrum for wireless which is what the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted in the early 2020s to be used in commercial settings in the past, having earlier been reserved exclusively for Department of Defense (DoD). This update basically allowed CBRS to a myriad of applications for businesses that want to develop new 5G services or expand existing 4G/LTE services.

In the same vein the FCC has announced the names of crucial Spectrum Access System (SAS) administrators will be able to oversee wireless communications within the CBRS band, a procedure specifically designed to safeguard “high priority” users (e.g. DoD) DoD) against interference. Any device that connects directly to CBRS spectrum requires authorization from the SAS administrator. Today, this is Google, Sony, CommScope, Federated Wireless, Key Bridge Wireless and Amdocs.

It’s a crucial aspect of the brand newly launched AWS private 5G servicesIt’s fully integrated in the SAS administration procedure and has AWS handling everything on behalf of the client and also taking the responsibility for interference issues, among other troubleshooting information related with spectrum usage.

The new Amazon private 5G service is an overstatement as of today since it’s currently only compatible with 4G LTE. However, it is true that the OnGo Alliance (then called the CBRS Alliance) completed its 5G specifications for CBRS about two years ago and the last few months have focused on setting the framework to allow completely commercially-available 5G service for example, just last week, Samsung Electronics America announced an agreement with Kajeet to establish a private 5G network that will be available on CBRS.

However, while “AWS Private 5G” is an acknowledgement of what it’s constructed to support in the near future, the current branding might cause some anxiety among those interested in local 5G services in the present. It’s not currently offering 5G, and it’s possible that the name will reflect that more precisely.
