Satellite VSAT Technologies

Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSAT) transmit and receive satellite transmissions. VSAT networks have gained popularity due to their unlimited geographic research, efficient transmission, and data reception capabilities. 

A satellite network consists of two or more earth stations (VSAT) and satellite re-transmitter (Transponder).
