TELEPHONY SOLUTIONS / TRAINING OR CYBERCAFE SETUP/SUPPORT
A VSAT is a small-sized telecommunications earth station
that transmits and receives via satellite. The terminal size is 1.2
to 2.4 meter in diameter.
They have been in use for more than 10 years and, with more than 500,000 systems operating in more than 120 countries, VSATs are a mature and proven technology.
VSAT networks may transmit and receive voice, data,
fax, or video conferencing.
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 solutions.
VSATs are used for a wide variety of telecommunications applications, including corporate networks, Internet service provision, rural telecoms, distance learning, telemedicine, cybercafes, banking, oil and gas exploration, manufacturing, government agencies and departments and much more.
As Internet traffic continues to grow at exponential rates worldwide, Internet services providers (ISP's) everywhere are turning to satellite to keep with demand for network bandwidth. VSAT has offered ISP's and telecommunications service providers easily scalable, cost-effective Internet access since 1989.
A VSAT has certain clear advantages over terrestrial networks and other wireless communications media.
FAST & SMOOTH INSTALLATION
Satellite services are usually activated much more quickly
than terrestrial networks. Since meters or kilometers of cable need
not be installed. An antenna, modem and satellite circuit can be installed
and made operational in just a few weeks rather than the months installation
of cable may take. It is easily implemented due to the wireless nature
of connectivity. And as a network grows, additional capacity can be
obtained in just as short a time.
Satellite networks offer much higher reliability than terrestrial networks. Network performance is enhanced with satellite by linking directly to an Internet backbone, bypassing congested terrestrial lines, exchanges and numerous interconnections. This reduces the potential points of failure.
ECONOMIC NETWORK COSTS
The broadcast nature of satellites allows for the simultaneous
delivery of information to wide geographic areas without regard to
terrestrial infrastructure or geographic barriers. Charges for terrestrial
services are nearly always distance-dependent, while VSAT connections
cost the same whether sites are one or 1000 Km apart. VSATs are capable
of sending and receiving all sorts of video, data and audio content
at the same high speed regardless of their distance from terrestrial
switching offices and infrastructure.
The key advantage of a VSAT earth station, versus a
typical terrestrial network connection, is that the reach of buried
cable does not limit VSATs. Satellite is the only telephony and broadband
wide-area network technology that is available everywhere - in even
the most remote urban and rural areas, rain forests or concrete jungles,
anywhere in the world.
SITE RELOCATION AND ADDITION
Relocating and adding network sites is much simpler and cheaper with a satellite network than with most terrestrial technologies.
FLEXIBILITY & EXPANSION
VSAT networks are highly scalable, i.e. it provides the ability to scale according to the customer's requirements with low incremental cost. This is especially important as businesses grow over time.
A VSAT network can support thousands of VSAT remotes. Hence, a customer may start with Data services (internet browsing & e-mail) and then adding more bandwidth can be done over time by a simple reconfiguration at the Network Operating Center. In addition customers are able to add voice capabilities or video applications when the need arises.
SATELLITE INTERNET SOLUTIONS THAT PROVIDES VOICE, FAX AND DATA SERVICES VIA SATELLITE.
There are 3 major signal bands available on the VSAT
system. They are the C-band, KU-band and the KA- band.
Typically, interactive Ku-band antenna sizes range from 75 centimetres to 1.8 metres and C-band from 1.8 metres to 2.4 metres.
