(Alliance News) - Vodafone Group PLC on Wednesday said it is collaborating with Amazon Web Services to make AWS Wavelength available in Europe.

Amazon.com Inc's AWS Wavelength provides developers the ability to build mobile applications that serve users with single-digit millisecond latencies over the 5G network.

The FTSE 100-listed telecommunications firm said it plans to roll out AWS Wavelength in "strategic" locations within its 5G network.

"With Europe's largest 5G network across 58 cities and as a global leader in internet of things with over 90 million connections, Vodafone is pleased to be the first telco to introduce AWS Wavelength in Europe," said Vinod Kumar, chief executive of Vodafone Business.

AWS Wavelength will be available first in the UK and Germany on the Vodafone 5G network, expanding to other Vodafone markets across Europe, the company explained.

Vodafone shares were trading 1.3% lower in London on Wednesday morning at 143.94 pence each.
