An Essential Requirement
A key factor for business success is the ability to offer new specific and secure products and services to meet customer and partner requirements. Customers expect both their local and centralised IT applications to perform in all circumstances.
There are multiple challenges: application, network and architecture complexity, increasing dependence on IT tools, digital transformation etc.
It is vital for businesses to be able to depend on a partner who can guarantee:
- Permanent and secure connectivity for traffic and data;
- Seamless resiliency;
- Maximum application performance;
- Service continuity.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are satellite communication services used for?
What is a communications satellite?
What is a satellite Hub?
What is a satellite terminal?
What does VSAT mean?
How secure are satellite communications?
Are satellite services and equipment reliable?
Are satellite services and equipment scalable?
Why are satellites an essential component when designing a telecommunications network?
Wireless satellite systems enable the rapid roll out and/or restoration of communications when terrestrial infrastructures are insufficient or unreliable. CIO’s must include satellite services and networks within their communications networks and architecture as a redundancy requirement. These systems must be placed at the forefront and taken into account from the outset when designing the network. Allowing for the implementation of communications service in just a few days, satellite services prove their added-value when providing “instant infrastructures” for business, government and emergency services communications.
Why are satellites an essential component when it comes to data backup policies?
What is the difference between a LEO and GEO satellite?
GEO (Geostationary Earth Orbit) is used for telecommunications and live television broadcasting. These satellites orbit along a circular path, within the plane of the equator and their radius is 42 164 km from the centre of the earth at an altitude of 35 786 km above the earth’s surface. From the ground, geostationary satellites appear to be stationary which is where the name comes from.
LEO satellites provide lower latency, but as they are not geostationary, they require the installation of a satellite to follow their trajectory.
What types of network architecture are available?
What is a hybrid network?
What are the benefits of a hybrid network?
It supplies additional throughput for terrestrial links by providing a communal pool of satellite bandwidth for different agencies from a satellite network to avoid congestion when various links are overloaded.
It reduces global connectivity costs by optimising connection use between remote sites.
What does MPLS mean?
What does network oversubscription mean?
- An oversubscription ratio of 1:1 means that the bandwidth is guaranteed
- An oversubscription ratio of 1:8 means that 8 users share the bandwidth
A Broadband Internet access is usually a service with non-guaranteed bandwidth whereas a dedicated Internet access (DIA) guarantees bandwidth from the customer’s facilities to the public Internet.
Is it possible to optimise a network without increasing the bandwidth?
What is SD-WAN?
SD-WAN stands for Software Defined Wan (WAN or Wide Area Network). There is no standard definition for SD-WAN within the industry. SD-WAN technology is used within the framework of hybrid networks (MPLS or VSAT) and uses WAN functions such as VPN, WAN optimisation, IPsec tunnel mode, hybrid WAN, deep packet inspection, rule management and analysis and assessment services. The purpose of SD-WAN is to simplify the management and operation of WAN by identification applications and dynamic path selection for traffic.
Sonema’s SD-WAN offer is an entirely managed service, backed up by stringent SLAs which allows us to improve the customer’s hybrid network performance through the use of routing, security and optimisation rules.
