Virtualizing Ground Infrastructure: Benefits and Challenges

One of the key benefits of virtualized ground infrastructure is its ability to improve the efficiency of bandwidth usage. Virtualized ground infrastructure allows for more flexibility in scaling operations, making it easier to handle the growing amount of data. This can be especially beneficial for LEO constellations, where the need for greater scalability is driving the demand for virtualized ground infrastructure.

However, one of the challenges with virtualizing ground infrastructure is the need for a high level of security. Since a virtualized ground infrastructure relies on cloud-based networks and virtualized software, it is more vulnerable to cyber attacks. To address this, VGS solutions must have robust security measures in place to protect against potential threats.
