SOUTH AFRICA AND VSAT
VSAT is nothing but Very Small Aperture Terminal that is a popular as well as a reliable means
for satellite internet South Africa. The three main components of VSAT technology are the
satellite, the central hub and the big dish antenna. Apart from these main components there are
a number of smaller dish antennas which are also referred as nodes. These are kept in a number
of places and all of these components together using the satellite network form the Star
topology. Satellitebroadband South Africa is made possible via the use of VSAT technology.
The technology that is involved in this is the usage of earthbound station to communicate media
signals, data and voice via a satellite. This proves to be very beneficial in many remote areas of
Africa where communication is a major issue. In such remote regions, it is impossible to get a
good Internet signal. Therefore, in such places, satellite is the only option.
This article will discuss the main benefits of using VVSAT satellite connectivity in South Africa.
Internet is made accessible to everyone, even in remote locations: There are many remote
locations in the African continent. These remote locations do not receive clear internet signals
and the communication tends to be spotty most of the time. By making use of VSAT, you get
global coverage as the location doesn’t matter and what the topography of the region is does not
affect the communication. Even if you are located at the most remote corner of the continent,
you will be receiving the VSAT to connect to the internet and use it to save and receive data.
The use of this network will also enable you to carry out applications that are sensitive such as
voice calling and radio programs seamlessly. This is precisely the reason why many applications
such as internet radio, DTH and cable TV are able to provide their services even in remote
locations. Furthermore, it is also possible to stream multicast applications or digital signage
applications such as audio and videos due to VSAT.
Ability to deploy rapidly: By making use of VSAT, the main advantage is that you get to deploy it
rapidly. As soon as the satellite is put up in the orbit, you can deploy it immediately at the
premises of the customer- within a few hours. The deployment can be done with minimum
training; all you need is the right equipment. Furthermore, the deployment can be done in any
region. Therefore, no matter where the customer is located, it will start working immediately.
This kind of facility is very advantageous, especially in the continent of Africa where internet
connectivity can be a problem. Therefore it is an ideal solution for such places that are situated
in remote areas.
