The Very Small Aperture Terminal is a one-way or two-way satellite ground station consisting of a dish antenna smaller than three meters across. The VSAT’s function is to access the signal from a specific orbiting satellite, at which the antenna is pointed, and relay data back and forth from other terminals and hubs.
VSAT systems are attractive where the coverage area is large, where quick installation is required and where terrestrial alternatives are difficult to organize. Because of the convenient size, VSAT technology has made satellite communication an attractive and viable option for a wide range of industrial applications, including mobile communications and broadband VSAT.
It works in conjunction with the iDirect Modem
The various benefits of using VSAT are:
Availability - easily deployed anywhere in the world
Independence - completely wireless, independent of local infrastructure
Backup for potential disasters
Easy setup - can be setup in less time
Strength and speed of the VSAT connection
Security – private layer 2 networks over the air
Pricing – very affordable
Cost-effectiveness – serves the same content to thousands of locations at once for no additional cost
Onboard acceleration of protocols – Allows the delivery of high quality connections regardless of latency
The Uses of VSAT are vast.
Point of Sale systems like shopping malls and eateries
Internet access for WiFi at cafés and offices
Broadcasting for TV station vans
Financial feeds from stock markets
