1  Service Providers / Satellite Internet - Americas / VSAT installers in the Americas and Caribbean ?

I have started a new page listing VSAT satelite dish installers in the Americas.

Please, if you are an installer, send me some text by email plus an image of one of your installations.

Refer to similar page http://www.satsig.net/africa/vsat-installers-africa.htm to get an idea of what is appropriate.

Best regards, Eric

It is no problem at all. You are very welcome to the forum.

Hub based iDirect networks use a system called Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) for the burst transmissions from the remote sites towards the hub. Remote sites transmit short bursts all on the same frequency but at different times.

The hub needs to know the locations of all sites so that it may calculate the distances to the satellite. Based on these distances and the speed of radio waves, the hub can then tell the remote sites exactly what time to transmit their bursts, so that the bursts do not overlap one another when the stream of bursts arrive at the satellite.

GPS coordinates are fine or you can use my latitude-longitude finder

GLONAS is similar to GPS, so that will do if you have a GLONAS receiver.

Beidu is a search engine. Maybe if you look up the town name at each site there will be information about the lat/long of the town. I am not sure.

Dear all,
I am very sorry if i make any mistake this is my first time on a forum so if i offend any body then " I already said SORRY Tongue"
So my question is regarding the functionality of iDirect 5iF Hub, Why does an iDirect Hub needs coordinates for both Hub and remotes Linked to it and can i only use GPS for coordinates or i can also use GLONAS or Beidu services.
Please educate me if anybody know about this

I suggest you call one of the phone numbers here:

"AC Power Arc Fault" suggests something serious wrong in the high voltage area of the TWT power supply.

I suggest you get advice from CPI about what the alarm means and what needs to be done.

Regards, Eric.

Good Day! I just want to ask what is the possible cause of "Power Arc Fault" on the CPI HPA VZU-6997AD? The unit is working for 1 month & almost 2 weeks then it displays fault like this.

All the power lines are OK, no atmospheric disturbance during the time when the HPA displayed fault, and the unit is properly connected to the grounding.

We are looking forward for your kind help.

Thank you and best regards,
