What is VSAT?

VSAT stands for Very Small Aperture Terminal. VSAT is a small parabolic antenna that uses satellites for communication lines. The VSAT extension itself actually refers to the size of the antenna that tends to be small but remains strong for use as a satellite telecommunications terminal. The diameter of large VSAT antenna usually ranges between 0.6 – 2.4 meters. But there is also a VSAT antenna that is 3-6 feet.


Because using satellites in space, the VSAT telecommunication system can cover a very, very long distance. The use of VSAT is for satellite internet subscriptions, data, TV, LAN, voice and facsimile, and VoIP.

VSAT is a Wide Area Network or WAN communication system. In short, the WAN is a network that has a very wide range, can include countries or continents. The VSAT antenna is a useful tool for receiving and sending signals to and from internet satelit. While the satellite serves as a signal successor when receiving signals from a VSAT. Then the satellite forwarded signal will get to the HUB or center.
