Product specification

Customise Internet speed to your business needs
You get to choose speeds as per your business needs; all you need is the right hardware. For example, a 1.2m antenna with a 2-watt radio radius will give you a connection speed of up to 4Mbps to the satellite router and 720Kbps from the satellite router.

Affordable access for all
We deploy the latest in satellite technology that provides bandwidth-efficient service plans making it affordable for large and small businesses alike. You can use the bandwidth better and prioritise traffic to applications that are most important to you, eg: voice or multimedia.

Always-on connectivity
The Managed Satellite network is completely IP-based with built-in redundancy and failover technologies that seamlessly kick in if one element becomes unavailable, thus guaranteeing connectivity.

Get service no matter where you are
You get the same quality of service no matter where your sites are located, unlike some other access mediums which rely on line of sight or are best-effort solutions.

Hassle-free and quick deployment
You don't have to wait for lines to be installed, for clearances or for local infrastructure to become available. All you need is the right hardware and a clear view to the North/Eastern sky.

Secure and private access via managed VPN
Our managed VPN options give you total control of the access criteria and provide more security and seamless connectivity with third parties. You can connect different business sites to each other in a secure and managed VPN, without necessarily having to connect to the Vodacom MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching).

Guaranteed quality of service
Our exacting SLAs (service level agreements) guarantee that your satellite connection will deliver the connectivity, reliability and speed you require.

Consistency of speed and service
Satellite access is not dependent on terrain, quality of copper landlines, or distance from the exchange or radio frequency equipment. Therefore, it provides the same speed and service quality all the time.

Best-suited as an alternative VPN
This solution is most suitable for businesses experiencing security limitations with landline-based communications. It’s also ideal for businesses that need broadband back-up access during possible landline failures.

Transmit simultaneously to multiple locations
This is the ideal service to provide data multicast and business TV because satellite is perfect for transmitting data to multiple locations simultaneously.
