SK Telecom, which is South Korea’s top wireless provider, said on Thursday it has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to launch the country’s first 5G edge cloud service.

The business-targeted service, named SKT 5GX Edge, provides users ultra-low latency for data-intensive services by connecting to AWS Wavelength Zones installed in SK Telecom’s telecommunications offices, making it unnecessary for traffic to go through regional aggregation sites, according to the carrier.

SK Telecom said it expects SKT 5GX Edge to improve services such as video streaming, games and machine learning, reports Yonhap news agency.

The mobile carrier said it has worked with AWS since February this year, while also collaborating with 20 other companies to test the service, such as with food delivery giant Woowa Brothers Corp. for an autonomous food delivery robot.

The two companies have set up infrastructure for the service in the central city of Daejeon, 140 kms south of Seoul, and plan to expand into the country’s capital and other areas next year.
