We are an American full service satellite communications provider for all
Africa. Latin America and the Caribbean and We have VSAT
equipment for sale and bandwidth for sale to clients in Africa, the
Middle East, Central and South America.
Detailed explanation of VSAT equipment componen
The three major components are the antenna, the
transceiver and the modem. We offer the choice of new equipment or
refurbished equipment. Whatever the choice, we first bring all the
items to our facility in Miami and have them checked for working
condition, but also for completeness. Installations can be delayed
by weeks because somebody forgot to send a cable or a mounting
The VSAT Antenna
Prodelin 2.4m transmit/receive
The antenna choice depends upon the type of
service that the client will provide to his clients. A cyber
caf� with 15 to 30 computers in a location with good
satellite signal will be content with a Prodelin 2.4m
We choose Prodelin because of construction
strength and accuracy of manufacturer. Incidentally, they
are also approved by all of the satellite operators.
Installations that require high volume connections of 1MB
or greater will find savings by installing the larger 3.8m
or 4.5m antennas. Although these antennas cost more to
purchase and more to ship, there will be savings on the
re-occurring monthly bandwidth cost. Users of the smaller
antenna can be penalized when they try to push larger data
volumes through their link.
Anacom�s C-Band Transceiver
Anacom has the entire transceiver mounted in a single unit
making it simpler to install on the antenna.
The VSAT Transceiver
Transceivers are the radios
that transmit the signal from the earth station up to the
satellite. Small antennas transmitting high bandwidth
require powerful transceivers; larger antennas with smaller
bandwidth require less power.
Transceivers are sold by their power rating; our existing
clients use transceivers in the range from 5 watts to 60
watts. The choice is also influenced by the strength of the
satellite signal at the client�s location in addition to the
bandwidth and antenna size.
We recommend transceivers from Anacom or Codan. Both
companies offer a full range of transceivers in all sizes.
Both manufacturers offer advantages over the each other.
Mounted Codan Transceiver
Codans separate packaging of the Amplifier, power supply and
the converter allows less heat to be conducted to the
converter lowering the chance of failure.
The VSAT Modem

|The modem at one teleport
communicates directly with the modem at our client�s
location. Although most modems are compatible with each
other, we try to make it a rule that the modem type at our
client�s teleport is of the same type that we use in Miami.
Often we have to instruct technicians who are not
familiar with the modem how to set it up. It is easier to
accomplish this if both sets of technicians are using
We work with a wide range of modem types; Paradise,
Datum, EF Data and Comstream are the most common. The client
who has already purchased modems before coming to us often
determines the choice of modem.
Modems have a host of features that can cause their price
to jump by a factor of three if the more exotic choices are
made. It is important that the modem features are matched to
the needs of the satellite; incorrect modem settings can
lead to the client paying a premium for the monthly cost of

the USA supplier for up to date information
