This company, DSD Telecom, has been a major satellite data communication provider since 1998.

They help companies with Africa locations profit from access to the internet by providing appropriate VSAT satellite communications solutions.

The three satellite beam coverages shown operate on C band and Ku band frequencies and use iDirect router technology. The typical dish diameters (1.2 or 1.8m) required are shown. The indoor modem/router, iDirect Evolution X3, X5, X7 or iDirect Infiniti 3000, 5000, 7000 hardware, are well proven, having been designed by engineers with extensive internet routing experience.  iDirect may be configured to provide just what the customer needs, such as low bit rate 24/7 continuous transmission, intermittent small bursts of telemetry/SCADA data from hundreds of sites, public internet access for offices with multi-megabit rates or steady bit rates for VoIP, voice calls and quality video. Private networks are possible for inter-office use and governmental applications with secure connections.
