Satellite enables Cloud Services
Why do you even want satellite as part of your cloud network? If the default connectivity option is MPLS, and it works, why change? Two very clear reasons: 1) Cost of the MPLS; and 2) Connectivity availability.
Satellite access circuits is not a competing technology… it is an alternative solution. Meaning that if you can get fibre of microwave links then rather use it, satellite services are when you need to design beyond the limitations of fixed infrastructure or can’t work with variable GB billing.
Cloud services is about connecting the edge to the core… And there are really no better options than satellite to connect edge business premises to the core. Even Microsoft has adopted Satellite. The latest developments in new satellite constellations linked to the native advantages of satellite technology offers and attractive and compelling case for cloud services.

LEO satellites in low earth orbit are the closest devices to earth. MEO, medium earth orbits are a bit of a middle ground between LEO and GEO orbits. GEO satellites orbits synchronises with the orbit of the planet, so they appear in the same place every day on an angle between the planet’s poles.
