Du launches VSAT platform
Du's VSAT platform can provide connectivity in areas of limited coverage.

Du has launched a Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) services platform, based on iDirect revolution technology. The telco's portfolio of VSAT offerings provide integrated end-to-end services for corporate and enterprise customers and include IP VSAT, managed data network services over satellite, and satellite integration services. Du will also offer an internet, intranet and extranet solution on its VSAT platform.

Farid Faraidooni, chief commercial officer, Du said: "VSAT represents a significant addition to our corporate and enterprise offerings. It provides a solid new base from which remote businesses - such as those in the oil and gas industry - are able to ensure reliable, consistent communications at all times. It will bring further convenience and flexibility to such industries."

VSAT services provide a transmission and networking connectivity that uses VSATs that are earthbound, as well as a space segment, to simulate terrestrial data networks.

These services are useful for marine platforms as well as areas with limited terrestrial connectivity like deep in a desert. It is also used as an alternative route for traditional telecommunication services in order to ensure business continuity.
