This stands for Very Small Aperture Terminal, and refers to small earth stations, usually with an aperture between 1.2 and 2.4 meters. See USAT.
A satellite-based networking service that has a low per site cost ($175 per month per site or less). VSATs achieved their low cost by using shared, high-power satellite capacity, asymmetric data flows and a star topology — enabling remote "earth stations" at the sites to be as inexpensive as $5,000 (including installation). VSAT economies improve as the number of remote or branch sites increase; a VSAT network may connect hundreds or thousands of branch sites to a central site.
a type of satellite dish (1.82.4 meters in diameter). Used primarily for data transmissions (low speed to high speed). Can send and receive voice, data and video signals if enhanced. VSATs can transmit over wide areas by relaying to satellites in geosynchronous orbit.
ery mall perture erminal: A small satellite dish installed at end-user locations.
a small fixed earth station which provides a communication link required to setup a satellite-based communication network
a small-sized telecommunications earth station that transmits and receives via satellite
Veryâ€“Small Aperture Satellites
Very small aperture terminal. Very small aperture terminal (satellite service) is satellite communications system that serves home and business users. A VSAT end user needs a box that interfaces between the user's computer and an outside antenna with a transceiver.

Very Small Aperture Terminal is a two-way satellite technology that transmits and receives computer data and other narrow-bandwidth material. In the reconstruction of public TV's satellite system, PBS acquired VSAT equipment for all public TV stations to give them interactive capability, but the Internet now plays that role.
Very Small Aperture Terminal. An earthbound station used in communications of data, voice, and video signals, excluding broadcast television, consisting of two parts: a transceiver placed outdoors in direct line-of-sight to the satellite, and a device placed indoors to interface the transceiver with the end user’s communications device, such as a PC.
Very Small Aperture Terminal. One-meter diameter satellite dishes used by remote sites, as opposed to the 3m dishes used by head office, in a satellite-linked network. The central office is able to broadcast or multicast data to the remote sites. In Europe, regulatory restrictions are gradually being lifted to allow two-way transmission. The US does not labor under the same protectionism and so has a flourishing VSAT community that allows the remote site to reply using the same link.

Very Small Aperture Terminal. An earth station with a small antenna of usually 0.9-1.8 metre (3 - 6 foot) diameter. Typically used in point-to-multipoint data networks.
Very Small Aperture Terminal; low capacity satellite communications system serving home and business users
Very Small Aperture Terminal VSELP
Very Small Aperture Terminal. Small earth stations, usually 1.2-2.4 meter diameter. Means of narrowcast transmission of video, voice, and data by SCPC to a satellite. Used in business applications. Small aperture terminals under 0.5 meters are sometimes called Ultra Small Aperture Terminals (USATs).
Very Small Aperture Terminals. Station terminals with small aperture antenna.
Very Small Aperture Terminal. Networks designed for satellite communication.
VSATs are those little satellite dishes that you see used for PrimeStar and DirecTV among other things. In addition to tuning in satellite TV, they can be used to receive data such as IP multicasting. Many companies create a wide area computer networks (WAN) infrastructure.
Very Small Aperture Terminal. Refers to small earth stations, usually 1.8 metre to 4 metre in diameter in C-band. A VSAT system is a satellite communications system that is typically used by corporate private networks or in rural and remote areas. A VSAT system consists of an antenna and the associated electronics. VSAT networks are widely used by retail business for verifying credit cards. VSAT systems can be used for voice, data and video. Small aperture terminals under 0.5 metre are sometimes referred to Ultra Small Aperture Terminals (USATs).
Stands for Very Small Aperture Terminals, usually in the 1.2 to 2.4 meter range.
Very Small Aperture Terminal to receive/transmit terminals installed at dispersed sites connected to a central hub via satellite using small diameter antenna dishes (0.6 to 3.8 meters).
ery mall perture erminal. Small, increasingly affordable digital satellite transmission technology.
A small earth station, usually less than 2.4 meters, used for satellite communications.
VSAT is an acronym for Very Small Aperture Terminal, but more simply put it describes a small satellite terminal that can be used for one-way and/or interactive communications via satellite.
Very Small Aperture Terinal. Terminal de Apertura Muy Pequeña.
Very small aperture terminal. Refers to small earth stations, usually 3 feet to 6 feet (0.9 meter to 1.8 meter) in diameter. A VSAT system is a satellite communications system that is typically used for corporations or rural telephony. A VSAT system consists of an antenna and the associated electronics. VSAT networks are widely used by department stores, gas stations and drug stores for verifying credit cards. VSAT systems can be used for voice, data and video.
Very Small Aperture Terminal used in satellite communications. Satellite communications provides very high bandwidth capability and is typically used where terrestrial communications facilities are not available, or cannot be cost justified based on the use characteristics. VSAT is often used in environments where there is a need for high volume broadcasts to a large number of facilities (e.g., retail store chain price lists).
Very Small Aperture Terminal. Small earth stations with a satellite dish usually 4-6 feet in diameter used to receive high speed data transmissions; can also transmit slow-speed data.
Very Small Aperture Terminal used to describe duplex, fixed satellite stations typically 18" to 8' in diameter.
Very Small Aperture Terminal. A mini earth station with average antenna diameter of one meter for small capacity voice and data transmission.
Very small aperture terminal. Refers to small earth stations, usually in the 1.2 to 2.4 meter range. Small aperture terminals under 0.5 meters are sometimes referred to Ultra Small Aperture Terminals (USAT's).
Very Small Aperature Terminal. VSAT usually refers to a transmit and receive earth station with an antenna diameter no larger than 2.4m.
Very Small Aperture Terminal--a small earth station, usually in the 1.2 to 2.4 meter range, for satellite communications providing voice and data services.
Abbreviation for Very Small Aperture Terminal, a small data satellite dish.
Very Small Aperture Terminal -- This is a newer type of antenna, usually between 3 and 1 meters in diameter. Anything smaller is a USAT (Ultra Small Aperture Terminal).
Very Small Aperture Terminal. Low-cost small earth station, which can be used for one-way and/or interactive communications in a star, mesh or point to point satellite network. ETSI define VSAT antenna size to being less than or equal to 3.8 m at Ku-Band and 7.8 m at C-Band. VSAT networks offer value-added satellite-based services capable of supporting the Internet, data, video, LAN, voice/fax communications. Back to the TOP
