VSAT MPLS

Vox’s Ku-band satellite service is VSAT multiprotocol label switching (MPLS). This service is designed for businesses with remote or outlying branches not serviced by traditional terrestrial solutions, providing fast, uncapped internet. Using the iDirect Evolution Satellite Teleport, which is co-located at Vox’s Johannesburg office, VSAT provides point-to-point, single-hop satellite connectivity, with low latency for your applications and is IP voice ready. In this way, VSAT MPLS extends your connectivity reach – to any location in southern Africa – while maintaining reliability and security.

How It Works

Benefits

  • Secure, reliable connectivity

    VSAT MPLS creates a completely private network between head office and remote branches. The connection is highly reliable (99.5% uptime) and monitored 24/7.

  • Quick installation

    We offer quick installation timeframes, wherever you and your remote branches are located, with coverage throughout southern Africa.

  • Fast and capable internet

    Enjoy uncapped internet that is fast enough to support your needs, including voice IP services. Clients get a minimum guaranteed bandwidth, plus “burstable” bandwidth.

  • Standby redundancy

    VSAT can be used as an automatic failover redundancy option for when primary links fail. Pay a monthly fixed access fee, and only pay for bandwidth used when needed.
