VSAT is an abbreviation of Very Small Aperture Terminal which consist of a ground satellite dish that has the capability of receiving and sending satellite signals
VSAT system is design to serve telecommunications and media connectivity applications such as internet, data, voice, or video. It is designed for places that have limited access to other modes of connectivity services, e.g. on ships and in rural areas.
(i) It can be provided through a lease arrangement with fixed transmission costs regardless of distance. This provides for substantial communication cost savings – all from a single vendor for equipment, service, installation and maintenance of the entire network. (ii) High availability and excellent transmission quality is provided by the VSAT network, guaranteeing the highest performance levels (98.5% for Ku-band and 99.95% for C-band) among all communications alternatives. (iii) VSATs can be installed anywhere the business has a site irrespective of geographical location and terrestrial communications infrastructure. (iv) The user retains complete control of the way information is communicated within the network. This generates flexibility, particularly where new VSAT sites need to be added, or existing sites need to be moved or removed from the network. (iv) VSAT networks offer superior flexibility and performance. Adding a site is quick and easy, and higher network availability levels are easy to obtain. Upgrade and downgrade of bandwidth ca be configured almost immediately. (v) Prices of VSAT networks compete favourable against terrestrial alternatives including fibre. The costs are predictable and stable. (vi) VSAT networks can be secured using industrial strength encryption at AES-256 key.

We are able to cover the whole Brunei and SEA region with the various satellite access network and downlink antenna in Telisai Earth Station.

Clear Line of Sight – the antenna needs to have a clear view of the sky towards the satellite. Obstructions will cause unnecessary interruptions.

Power Supply – to power up the antenna, amplifier, modem and network equipment to establish the connectivity.

Network use – just like in any connection, traffic congestion and application hangs will affect user experience, it is important to design the network to ensure smooth operations and to meet customer expectations.

Security – both physical security and network security is crucial in all our customers’ network. Discuss this further with your sales engineers.

Installation can take anywhere from 1-3 days but a site survey must be done prior to installation to ensure all necessary procedures are taken into consideration for the correct and safe operation of a VSAT. Only certified installers can perform this commissioning of a VSAT network to avoid interference and catastrophic incidents.

The VSAT uses the satellite in space to relay the signals to a satellite earth station which connects it to the terrestrial communications infrastructure. NiAT operates the Telisai Satellite Earth Station which uplinks and downlinks all the satellite signals from the VSAT sites.
