Cinetcomm delivers enterprise-grade Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite-based communication solutions everywhere across the Americas, Pacific Rim, Asia, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. While the hub equipment, teleports, antennas and modems are all necessary elements of a VSAT system, they are NOT what the service is all about. A professionally designed and installed network solution should function as a seamless element of the client’s operation, facilitating smooth, efficient, and secure connectivity within their agency or enterprise.

Cinetcomm specializes in providing VSAT services wherever clients choose to operate, maintaining their mission-critical assured connectivity. These solutions can keep any number of people on the grid, enabling operation at locations lacking terrestrial-based facilities.

Cinetcomm VSAT Services bridge the “last mile” gap, and function with typical office-style features that include:

  • Dial-up Voice Telephony – single line or an entire group of numbers to support the operation with 10 digit North American numbers and US/Canadian call termination,
  • Broadband Data Connectivity – From 128 Kbps up to DS-3 connections with Secure WAN access and Tier 1 internet access as required,
  • Video Conferencing and Telemedicine Applications – When “going remote” becomes necessary, losing face-to-face and life-saving contact is maintained,
  • 2-way Radio Reachback to a Base Location – Remain connected to an agency or enterprise 2-way grid anywhere,
  • Video Surveillance and other Security Transmissions – Monitor remote sites, transmitting equipment and intrusion alarms,
  • Point-of-Sale, Equipment Monitoring, and other Process Management Services.

Should you already own VSAT equipment and have service from another provider, we would be pleased to have the opportunity to show you the Cinetcomm difference.

With Cinetcomm VSAT Services remote operations are no longer at the end of a long piece of string but remain vitally connected to the enterprise or higher command


Cinetcomm satellite internet is more reliable because we are the sole owner and operator of multiple teleport operations across the United States.
