OneWeb has agreed to combine its satellite broadband connectivity with cloud and edge computing services and capabilities of Amazon Web Services as part of efforts to expand the delivery of vertical and horizontal services to customers and communities worldwide.
OneWeb said Monday it signed a letter of intent with AWS to collaborate and advance business continuity, virtualization of mission operations, space data analytics and user terminals and edge integration.
The two companies will work to establish next-generation virtual network capabilities to bring low-Earth orbit satellite connectivity to clients around the globe.
“We are excited to work with OneWeb in their efforts to provide cloud-based connectivity and deliver innovative services to customers worldwide,” said Clint Crosier, director of aerospace and satellite solutions at AWS.
“AWS is committed to helping customers reimagine space systems, accelerate innovation, and turn data into useful insights quickly. We look forward to working with OneWeb in their efforts to push the edge closer to where their customers need it most,” added Crosier.
