VSAT

Rossal Technologies, an agent of Logical Wireless offers high quality VSAT satellite solutions to the business, hospitality and private community in Malawi. Our satellite solutions bring connectivity to the remotest of areas, providing Internet , Data, and Voice on Ku & C-band platforms, via state of the art Teleports in Johannesburg and the United States.

VSAT stands for “Very Small Aperture Terminal”, which refers to the technology whereby data is sent and received via an antenna. The antenna size is typically 1.2m diameter for Ku-Band, or 2.4m diameter for C-Band. The difference between the two is the Frequency in which they operate. C-Band systems operate on a lower frequency (3-6 Ghz) and are therefore less affected by rain fade, however due to the size of the hardware they are more costly.

A typical VSAT installation will consist of the following:

  • A satellite antenna capable of transmitting and receiving data.
  • A BUC (Block Up Converter) for transmitting.
  • An LNB (Low Noise Down Converter) for receiving.
  • Coaxial Cable from the antenna to the indoor modem.
  • A satellite Modem capable of receiving and transmitting data such as E-mails,
