In this post we will be focusing on VSAT technology features to familiarize you with what VSATs are and their many applications for connecting to the Intenet via satellite or for forming a private network over satellite. VSATs are small earth stations (normally 1.2 – 2.4 meters) that are utilized for reliable transmission of data, voice and video via satellite. VSAT Terminal Equipment consists of two units – an indoor unit (IDU) and an outdoor unit (ODU). The outdoor unit is placed outdoors for a line-of-sight to the satellite and the indoor unit interfaces with the user’s communications device (e.g. data terminal equipment such as a network switch or router).
