VSAT network solution may be used to transmit data, voice, and video communications to even the most rural locations within Indonesia.

Definition of Communications Satellite

A communications satellite or ‘comsat’ is an artificial satellite sent to space for telecommunicationspurposes. Modern communications satellites use a variety of orbits including geostationary orbits, Molniya orbits, elliptical orbits and low (polar and non-polar) Earth orbits. For fixed (point-to-point) services, communications satellites provide a microwave radio relay technology which complements the use of communication cables.

What is the latency for satellite connectivity?

The distance between the earth and the sky/satellite is 36.000.000m. As shown in the following, the speed of light formula is used to determine the latency of the earth towards satellite:

36.000.000 m

3 x 10m/s

36.000.000 m    = 0,12 s = 120 ms

300.000.000 m/s

*Processing time in VSAT system: ± 20 – 170 ms (Depending on the package subscription: broadband or dedicated). The total latency for VSAT service is about 500 – 650 ms.
