The DISH and AWS Partnership


DISH and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a major strategic partnership in April 2021, stating that the new carrier’s 5G network will be deployed in the hyperscale’s cloud infrastructure that will enable DISH’s core, edge, and even radio network. Specifically, DISH will use AWS Outposts and Local Zones to enable edge workloads and will also use AWS cloud infrastructure for its operation support systems (OSS)/business support system (BSS) operations. There are many benefits to this partnership: the companies have announced that DISH can utilize AWS’s expertise in AI/machine learning (ML) to improve its network operations and the AWS marketplace has attracted significant developer interest for business to business (B2B) applications.
