Why this VSAT course?

This is a well-established Continuing Professional Development (CPD) short course. It provides a technical foundation in VSAT communications together with an appreciation of the latest developments and the understanding to deal with VSAT systems and their applications.

Very Small Aperture Terminals (VSATs) support a range of highly effective broadband, Internet, and multimedia satellite communications services. This course commences by developing a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of satellite links, and moves on to implementation issues and case studies.

Who should attend this VSAT course

  • All those requiring a technical understanding of VSAT systems as well as detailed knowledge of current systems design.
  • The course will serve practising engineers and information technologists as well as managers, users and those concerned about the impact of VSATs.

VSAT Course Pre-requisites

Delegates should have existing experience in telecommunications or data networking prior to attending this course.

Lifetime Post-Course Support

After completing this VSAT training course, delegates receive lifetime post-training support from LEVER Technology Group, to help them apply the technologies and skills they have learned with us, to provide career-long support, and to ensure they are better equipped for their future roles in IT and networking.
