VSAT (very small aperture terminal) is a fundamental technology for teleport operators serving data and voice customers. Beyond serving as basic hubs for VSAT networks, teleports provide complex managed services on VSAT platforms and integrate them with fibre, wireless and other transmission paths.

A teleport may manage dozens or hundreds of individual networks, each comprising anywhere from 20-2,000 nodes with its own specific configuration, bandwidth requirements and mission-criticality. Success in this demanding business requires economies of scale: the ability to design, install, operate and maintain networks with the most efficient and cost-effective mix of personnel, equipment and bandwidth.

Savings in any of those areas produce a better return on investment (ROI) for the operator and, if properly implemented, a more efficient and higher quality operation for customers, according to the World Teleport Association (WTA), which has recently released a new research report entitled Understanding and Improving the ROI of VSAT Networks.
