IP and SatCom Professional Training Courses

Bridging the Gap

 
 IP over Satellite         Special Offering

Satellites have brought Internet access to places where IP communications seemed impossible. In a SAT-IP environment, IP-enabled devices such as VoIP Phone, tablets, PCs, laptops, smartphones, any connected digital TV, game consoles and media players will be able to receive satellite connectivity and programming.

Since 1998, The Global VSAT Forum (GVF) has been recognize and endorsed by major manufacturers and service providers as the single, unified voice of the global satellite communications industry. GVF has developed a vast vendor mutual and vendor specific training and certification programs. Their self-paced online training programs are highly interactive, animated, technically accurate and designed to assess the skills and knowledge of satellite communications professionals.

For pricing or registration of any GVF courses, please email us or call (800)798-3832
