This timely book presents the latest findings in the area of satellite communications. It stresses VSAT's crucial role as a means of providing universal access to broadband internet by bridging the gap between rural and urban areas, thus reducing the "digital divide". The authors have identified the lack of available information for applying VSAT in this context: the lack of guidance concerning network roll out, expansions, operation and maintenance issues. Their primary aim, therefore, is to propose the latest tools and models for designing and dimensioning cost-effective broadband VSAT networks. The strategies put forward are accompanied by key considerations for ensuring mid- and long-term sustainability and stability. This amply illustrated resource puts the hot topic of the "digital divide" under the spotlight and offers a diverse range of cost-effective solutions that aim to eradicate the problem.
