The Digital Cloud in Orbit
16 May 2023
SATExpo Summit Stage
SPACE LEADERS SPOTLIGHT
This session will be an exploration of the advantages of incorporating the Cloud – plus its logical extensions of virtualisation and edge-computing – into satellite businesses to fulfil the full potential of satellite’s full interoperability with telcos and MNOs, with satellites as switches in the greater telecommunications ‘network of networks’. There is an increasingly widespread adoption of cloud-native platforms and methodologies but the question is whether this is adoption of something monolithic or manifest as fragmented, siloed, and differentiated Cloud infrastructures that don’t readily scale.
- Is the Cloud monolithic or fragmented?
- How important are virtualisation and edge-computing in relation to the Cloud?
- What does full interoperability with telcos and MNOs actually mean?
