- VSAT Horizontal Connectivity
Wireless and Satellite Communications
Wireless and satellite communications can complement each other to provide a cost effective end-to-end solution. Having multiple VSAT terminals is expensive. Using wireless backhauls, access points and client devices, can reduce the costs for VSAT operators and service providers by extending their range of operation and by offering more value-added services.
In a typical deployment, a VSAT serves as a backbone and connects to a wireless access point to create a Wireless LAN. The access point combined with a sector or omni antenna provides point-to-multipoint coverage in a Line of Sight (LoS) or Near Line of Sight (NrLoS) condition to multiple customers equipped with client devices and directional antennas. Customers may range from large businesses to individual residents.
An ISP/Internet Café buying VSAT satellite internet connection can share the cost earn revenue by providing 24/7 Internet service to neighbouring residents and businesses with wireless access points
To extend the WLAN coverage even further, long range backhauls can be used. The VSAT connects to backhauls which form point-to-point links to connect isolated businesses, villages or towns. At the remote end, the backhaul will be connected to an access point which will serve the customers as already described.
A wireless backhaul can extend the reach of an ISP to neighbouring businesses, villages and towns,
by as much as 40 km if using the dual radio smartBridges airHaul2 nexus PRO
Once terrestrial optic fibre becomes available, the VSAT becomes redundant and the entire network may be seamlessly transitioned to a cheaper terrestrial Internet backbone connection.
