VSAT satellite equipment at sea

VSAT satellite communications technology has been successfully used to organize communications in geographically inaccessible areas, as well as areas with poor infrastructure without mobile coverage. On the ground, VSAT is, first of all, a satellite station with an antenna of no more than 2.5 meters in diameter. This equipment standard appeared in the sixties when a new satellite telephone network was successfully tested in Alaska. Today, VSAT implements sustainable telephone channels and broadband data. VSAT helps organize distance events in those cases where traveling to the place of all participants is not economically feasible. This training programs, and meetings, and video conferencing remote units of commercial or government agencies. Convenience of VSAT consists mainly in simplicity of system Continue reading

Satellite TV antennas for Russia

In the modern world, it is not surprising that there is satellite HD TV at home, and the selection of antennas is not so intricate: you need to go to the electronics hypermarket, where a ready-made set of equipment with a service package is on the counter.

Having the opportunity to contact anyone and whenever on land, a person can no longer afford to remain without communication for a long time while traveling on water. The same applies to receiving news: we are already used to learning about important events in a matter of minutes after they are completed, therefore it is not surprising that when sailing across the sea, we want to watch news programs, sports Continue reading
