AWS Ground Station 增加了澳洲的點

AWS 在「AWS Ground Station is now available in the Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region in Australia」這邊宣佈了 AWS Ground Station 多了雪梨 (澳洲) 的點。

這樣亞洲東部這區的衛星也有站點可以打上去了,加上本來的美東美西,歐洲與中東,涵蓋率應該是拉起來了:

AWS Ground Station is available today in US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), Middle East (Bahrain), EU (Stockholm), and Asia Pacific (Sydney) with more regions coming soon.

不過定價策略還沒變,先繼續看看好了...

AWS Ground Station 增加了巴林的基地站

先前 AWS Ground Station 提供的地面站都在美國 (美東與美西),這代表有些衛星就打不到了... 這次宣佈增加中東巴林的點,差不多是美西的對面,也因此增加了不少涵蓋率:「AWS Ground Station is now available in Middle East (Bahrain) region」。

雖然現在的公司有在用衛星,但以價錢與支援的頻帶看起來,應該連測試都沒機會... XD

如果你有衛星 (對,衛星),可以玩看看 AWS Ground Station

AWS 推出的新服務,AWS Ground Station:「AWS Ground Station – Ingest and Process Data from Orbiting Satellites」。

AWS 目前在地面上見了兩個基地站 (預定要成長到 12 個),這個服務可以跟衛星溝通:

Ground Stations – As I mentioned earlier, we are launching today with 2 ground stations, and will have a total of 12 in operation by 2019. We will monitor utilization and demand, and will build additional stations and antennas as needed.

收費是按照分鐘計算:

Pricing – Pricing is per-minute of downlink time, with an option to pre-pay for blocks of minutes.

看起來是給租用衛星頻寬的人用的... 不過當初會決定作這個服務是吸了什麼 XDDD
