As primary network connection in rural areas, Government agencies use satellite VSAT networks to ensure communication (data and voice). It also ensures communications in case of primary communication cable lines default. Network connection for encrypted communications over satellite between fixed or mobile units - like HQ, vessels, embassies, military bases, peacekeeping operations - enables fast and reliable communication in times of peace and in emergencies. Connection can also deliver data and voice for private use (e.g. phone calls for troops in military bases).
