FOR VSAT NETWORKS
2 USE OF SATELLITES
It isnot so important for someonewho is interested in VSAT networks to know a lot about satellites. However,a number of factors relative tosatellite orbiting and satellite-earth geometry influencethe operation and performance of VSAT networks. For instance, the relative position of the satellite with respect to the VSAT at a given instant determines the orientation of the VSAT antenna and also the carrier propagation delay value.
