OneWeb, a provider of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communications, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have signed a letter of intent to discuss cloud-based connection options. The two organizations want to collaborate on a totally integrated satellite constellation management service. They want to virtualize mission operations, enhance space data analytics, deliver cloud to edge solutions with a LEO-connected user terminal, and bundle connection with cloud and Edge computing services. Clint Crosier, director of aerospace and satellite solutions at AWS, expressed enthusiasm at the opportunity to collaborate with OneWeb on their efforts to provide global clients with cloud-based connectivity and cutting-edge services. AWS is dedicated to assisting clients in swiftly transforming data into actionable insights, reimagining space systems, and accelerating innovation. They are eager to collaborate with OneWeb in order to move the Edge closer to the areas where their clients have the most need for it. 

OneWeb's vice president for new markets, Maurizio Vanotti, expressed his company's extreme excitement to start partnering with AWS to bring cloud services even closer to the Edge through OneWeb's network. With the help of OneWeb's high-speed, low-latency services, users will be able to connect to even the most remote corners of the globe and everywhere in between thanks to this international agreement, which will alter the market's dynamics.
