Satellite Service Providers/Resellers

By superfine_claire ·
Can you please describe the relationship between a satellite provider and a reseller? Does the provider know what types of information/data the reseller will have access to? where the reseller is providing the services? the ownership (perhaps foreign) structure? What is the difference between satellite providers, carriers, and operators?

Reseller will generally provide equipment and maintenance of the equipment. The Master Earth station and any other Earth stations, etc... The satellite modems, maybe even the routers to connect into the satellite modems.

The Carrier provides the actual satellite bandwidth. This may or may not be the owner of the satellite.

The satellite provider will be the person you actually purchase the bandwidth from. This entity generally buys massive bandwidth from the carrier, then resells that bandwidth to their customers. They will assign you your uplink/downlink freqs, satellite, etc....

Many times, two of these three functions will be fullfilled by a single entity, however, I am not familiar of any cases where all three functions were filled by a single entity.
