  1. 99 % Reliability

Internet by satellite is known for high-reliability networks with redundant components, enterprise class hardware systems and networks that manage a large number of concurrent users. Our networks have historic reliability in the range of 99.992 % and our SLA assures that network outage must be fixed in less than 2 hours.

  1. Ideal Back-up to Terrestrial Networks

VSAT networks make a good back up network to the terrestrial networks (Leased Lines, MPLS circuits, Broadband DSL Connectivity, Internet Leased Lines, etc) and there are certain customized plans available exclusively for backup.

Internet by satellite is possible through mobile equipment. The end user location is connected to the Internet as long as the VSAT dish has a clear line of sight (i.e. a clear view of the southern sky).

10. Development possibilities

A VSAT supports a variety of network configurations and a large information including computer data, can be transmitted on different speeds. The VSAT is more flexible and less expensive than many land-based communication networks. Point-to-multi-point communication is possible.
