StarNet MESH

Full mesh connectivity - provides a hub-less network using only 1 satellite hop which offers lower delay and better response time. Smaller networks can be implemented at a lower cost than the traditional hub-based systems. What’s new is its ability to be in direct contact with many other VSATs over what’s called "mesh links,” based on Multi-Frequency Time Division Multiple Access [MF-TDMA] standards. Each of these VSAT can have a large number of concurrent active mesh links known as Private Virtual Circuit [PVC] where each PVC's bandwidth class- of-service is assigned and managed independently.

This bandwidth can be allocated permanently [CIR] or dynamically [BoD] depending on network load and application need. This dynamic bandwidth allocation ensures the efficient use of satellite bandwidth resources that reduces network cost.Another key feature of StarNet MESH network is that it can establish multiple "virtual link" [PVC] with many other sites on single satellite modem, widely improving efficiency with easy management, compared to traditional SCPC network, which would require investing in multiple SCPC modems and multiplexers which introduces both high CAPEX and OPEX. StarNet MESH works well for high bandwidth requirements such as IP and voice trunking, video conferencing network, mobile backhaul and service provider backup link. Its flexibility and network efficiency is ideal for today's IP and legacy networks.With the cost-effective nature of today’s VSAT technology for IP networking, this new generation of Mesh networks, will over time, replace the traditional and more expensive circuit-oriented Demand Assignment Multiple Access [DAMA] technologies.
