Let's admit it, 99% of the communication is happening via fiber optic cables under the sea while satellites above the sky count only 1%. However, this trend is disrupted by the dynamic changes in satellite technologies with the advent of low earth orbit satellites and of course IOT.
Satellites are secure. At the end of the day, military forces still rely on them
You can reach any location via satellites no matter what: be it a ship, plane or a corporate HQ
SD-WAN forms a single virtual pipe that you could fill in with any connection type: MPLS, internet, LTE, etc
Connectivity costs over satellites are not as high as they used to be, just give it a try
All you need is an antenna and a CPE to manage the entire WAN
Together with SD-WAN you can manage your entire network from a single dashboard; your policies are synchronized on all edge devices instantly
