VSAT technology has emerged as a very useful, everyday application of modern telecommunications. VSAT systems can provide a variety of services including broadband communication systems, satellite-based video, audio, Internet and data distribution networks as well as worldwide customer service and support.

VSAT stands for "Very Small Aperture Terminal;" it refers to receive/transmit terminals, installed at dispersed sites and connecting to a central hub via satellite using small diameter antenna dishes (0.6 to 3.8 meter).

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