VSAT services are delivered through the use of either C-Band or KU-Band geostationary satellites for video, voice, fax and data transmissions. VSATs use a star network with the use of satellite earth stations that rely on a large central hub. Alternatively the use of mesh (hubless) VSAT networks can provide communication between VSAT terminals directly. They can be configured in both one-way (receive only) and two-way (interactive) VSAT terminals.
