VSAT means Very Small Aperture Terminal, VSAT is a technology used to define a two-way-satellite communications. VSAT system use small dish antennas that varies from 75 cm to 2.4 meters in diameter.
VSAT terminal access satellites in orbit, to transfer data from one earth station to other or to access the internet (two way satellite internet). The VSAT network is managed by the HUB (mater earth station).
VSAT system are commonly used to transmit narrow band data for applications such a telemetry (SCADA), Point-of-Sale transactions such as credit cards, Internet Access, Voice-Over-IP, Bank transactions between head quarters and branches and any IP application.
Satellites provide today's businesses with a flexible, universal, reliable and quickly deployable means to address a wide range of communications needs. Use this guide to find out why and how companies from a variety of industries use satellite-based solutions to advance their businesses.
X2nSat’s Point-of-Sale Solution allows your POS sites to integrate normally with your organization’s networks, just like any other site. Once installed and integrated with your standard sales mechanisms, neither your employees nor customers will notice a difference.
X2nSat provides a fully-managed, turnkey solution for Point-of-Sale sites, allowing merchants and financial institutions to process electronic transactions over a commercial-grade satellite network with ease, anywhere on the globe.
Satellites are ideal for any site requiring two-way, narrowband communication, especially when there is little or no terrestrial communications infrastructure available.
Due to the nature of satellite uplink/downlink, X2nSat can reach any site, regardless of how rural it may be. Even point-of-sale sites located near local communications infrastructure can benefit from satellite connectivity, as the operational costs for land-line connectivity to these sites is often prohibitively expensive for the small amount of data transferred.
Ideal for any application of M2M (Machine to Machine) communication, X2nSat’s turnkey satellite dish and router is easily installed and integrated with your current IT environment, providing connectivity to your POS terminals within minutes after being installed.
POS is designed to meet the needs for the average MTM (Machine to Machine) transaction system. PoS offers a high quality TCP/IP connection delivered with a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet hand off to the remote site. This product offers a very high quality of service with packet loss below 1%.
X2nSat’s Point-of-Sale Solution provides seamless site integration and allows your POS sites to integrate normally with your organization’s networks, just like any other site.
Once installed and integrated with your standard sales mechanisms, neither your employees nor customers will even notice a difference.
VSAT POS provides the latest and the best solutions for your POS and or for your M2M (Machine to Machine) business needs. Service installation is easy and integration with current transactional equipment in urban or rural environments.
VSAT POS is always-on connectivity and completes transactions in as little as 2-5 seconds, faster than normal transactional equipments.
VSAT POS has three tiers of POS services which can increase throughput speeds, add IP-multicast and increase number of connected devices.

Construction firms have been early adopters of wireless technologies. Some of the M2M solutions currently being used in the Engineering Construction phase include the 3D design and costing tool known as Building Information Modeling (BIM), electronic bid distribution and submission, and remote communications for locations outside cellular coverage.
We are starting to see machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions in many areas of our lives – from bridge toll devices and tracking on courier packages to remote medical monitoring. With more than 50 billion connected devices projected by 2020, M2M solutions are the next big opportunity.
The bottom line is that the M2M space faces obstacles that add to the solution’s total cost and hinders growth in certain markets. Over time, the M2M application platform will evolve from a closed platform to an open, well-defined platform, just as cell phone application platforms did.
The certification process and support process will mature and become more suitable for M2M devices. In the meantime, choosing an experienced company to launch your M2M solutions will be the key to your success.
Machine-to-machine technology like the use of POS Connectivity has incredible potential for almost any business. It also has many elements. But X2nSat has expertise and technology across the entire M2M ecosystem, helping customers streamline processes and improve performance from initial idea to ongoing management.
Whether you call the technology machine to machine (M2M), connected devices, or embedded systems, connected machines are fast becoming the eyes and ears of the enterprise.
By adding sensors and networking technologies to the products they sell and the equipment they employ, companies are finding new ways to gather powerful insights and use new forms of data.
