iSAT Africa provides secured and reliable VSAT services across Africa on different platforms/frequencies including C band, KU band and KA band.
Our services also ranges from SCPC platform to the TDM/TDMA platforms.
We have Internet, VPN, Enterprise Applications, VOIP, Video Conferencing, Intranet, Wide Area Network and other data services runs on our secured and reliable VSAT Network.
We do provide IP Trunking Services on our VSAT infrastructure where we provisioned high capacity links on dedicated bandwidth bases. This service is available to our clients and prospects with high capacity/bandwidth requirements.
Partners including Mobile Network Operators, Internet Service Providers, Governmental Organizations etc use our secured and reliable IP Trunking services.
iSAT Africa provides Bandwidth on Demand services on VSAT to its subscribers. Our Bandwidth on Demand” (BoD) Platform extends high-speed internet access to ISPs and Corporates across sub- Saharan Africa on demand. BoD complements ISP’s existing fibre infrastructure.
SkiSAT platform offers Internet Access Services in 40 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
The services are provisioned by Internet Gateway that include the Earth Stations, the baseband Equipment, the Networking Infrastructure and the Local Loop Fibre Connection.
ISAT will add its terrestrial network and by adding all its POP’s in Europe, Africa and beyond to support increase in internet traffic and different user applications like VPN.
This network is comprised of several PoP servers providing:
Each PoP node can support up to 20 Gbps. It balances and protects the user traffic accessing the Internet, allowing the most convenient paths to destination and, finally, supporting asymmetric traffic flows.
To ensure highly reliable communications within the network, even in case of connectivity failure or traffic congestion, differentiated or protected links and redundant equipment were set up.
All operation, administration, maintenance and provisioning activities are remotely performed through the Network Operation Centre (NOC) located in UAE and Kenya.
The Service Access Domain on SkiSAT is built on the Hughes Jupiter 2.5 technology. It allows the End-User premises to connect to the network.
The Hughes HT2000 modem adopts the most recent technology for modulation on Forward channel, i.e. DVB-S2X wideband forward channel, and was engineered for the highest possible capacity and efficiency with HTS Satellites. The channel access method is MF-TDMA.
The system is comprised of a modem, the PEP system (i.e., the Performance Enhancement Proxy, the IP routers, and the provisioning system (i.e., DHCP, LDAP and Radius servers).
The Terrestrial Transport Network for the current services was designed based on the Next Generation Network concepts, according to the ITU-T
Recommendation Y.2001 (12/2004), in order to:
The Network design was based on the principle of one single transport network (all over IP) and is aimed at delivering layer-3 IP services. The Network is built on a Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) system, providing multi-protocol traffic carriage over the network, traffic engineering capabilities and VPN support in order to isolate and prioritize traffic across different entities. A map of the Network topology appears in Figure below.
The future architecture of the Internet access service with KONNECT satellite is shown in the following figure:
The key elements of a typical End-User Domain are:
The user interface is composed of four different menus, which allow access to different information and functionalities, and to the content displayed within the main body of each page. The figure below introduces a sample of OSS Customer Portal page, while the following table presents the main elements of the page.
With the satellite coverages include the below on the ones shared earlier.
We would like to have the satellite coverage page shown link to the satellite page for more details.
