What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Ground Segment

For SMBs, the ground segment presents an opportunity to connect with satellites to transmit or receive data. This can be used for various purposes, such as monitoring operations, transmitting signals, or collecting data. SMBs that rely on their data constantly being transmitted and received correctly can benefit from using the ground segment to ensure no service disruptions. Furthermore, GSaaS (Ground Segment as a Service) providers offer this type of service to SMBs, making it easier and more affordable to connect with satellites.
