Lemcon Philippines is focused on advancing connectivity in the. Having dependable and uninterrupted communication is important for businesses, and communities to thrive. Many regions in the Philippines face poor connectivity and Lemcon want to support. Lemcon has been an industry leader for nearly 25 years and is committed to programs that connect communities to the internet. Lemcon Philippines personnel build high quality, reliable VSAT installations that bring connectivity to communities, even in remote areas.
VSAT stands for Very Small Aperture Terminal. It is a satellite communication system that uses small dish antennas to establish two-way satellite communications. VSAT systems are commonly used for various applications, including internet access, voice communication, video conferencing, and data transfer in both residential and commercial settings.
Here are some key features and components of a typical VSAT system:
- Dish Antenna: VSAT systems use small dish antennas, typically ranging from 0.75 to 2.4 meters in diameter. These antennas are used to send and receive signals to and from satellites.
- Satellite Transponder: A satellite transponder is a communication device on a satellite that receives signals from VSATs and transmits them back to the Earth. The transponder operates on specific frequency bands allocated for satellite communication.
- Hub Station: The hub station serves as the central control and coordination point for the VSAT network. It consists of larger antennas and sophisticated equipment to manage the communication with multiple VSAT terminals.
- VSAT Terminal: The VSAT terminal is the user-end equipment that consists of a dish antenna, transceiver (transmitter/receiver), and other necessary components. It communicates with the satellite and the hub station to establish the connection.
- Modem: The VSAT terminal typically includes a modem, which is responsible for modulating and demodulating the signals for transmission over the satellite link. It converts digital data into a suitable format for satellite transmission and vice versa.
- Network Operations Center (NOC): The NOC is the central control and monitoring center for the VSAT network. It oversees the network performance, troubleshoots issues, and manages network configurations.
VSAT systems are popular in areas where terrestrial communication infrastructure is limited or unavailable, such as remote locations, maritime vessels, and disaster-stricken areas. They offer reliable and scalable connectivity options for both individual users and organizations requiring broadband access or private network connections across wide geographic areas.
