VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) are small fixed satellite antennas that provide highly reliable communication means for data, voice and fax between almost any number of geographically dispersed sites.

VSAT technology represents a cost effective solution for users seeking an independent communications network connecting a number of remote sites. VSAT networks offer value-added satellite-based services capable of supporting the Internet, data, LAN, voice/fax communications, and can provide powerful, dependable private and public network communications

VSAT satellite communication provides reliable digital data communication and the use of VSAT provides the ability to expand capacity and system growth, while maintaining a handle on costs which are closely associated with the increase in capacity or system growth.

VSATVSATs are used for a wide variety of telecommunications applications, including

  • Internet/Intranet access
  • Corporate networks
  • SCADA/Line Monitoring
  • Rural telecoms
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Distance Learning
  • Seismic Monitoring
  • Telemedicine
  • Utility monitoring
  • Disaster recovery
  • Remote Video Monitoring
  • Ship-board communications

Corporate companies are now utilising both terrestrial and satellite communication to connect to remote offices around the country side. The cost and security advantage of satellite bandwidth compared with some terrestrial circuits ensures that the number and diversity of VSAT networks will continue to grow in the future. The mining, construction and oil&gas industries are typical examples of applications which find advantages with VSAT.
