Look to the stars

The author reports on the implementation of a plan to link--via a high-tech satellite system--many of the 145,000 Russian college students who receive their education from the Moscow-based Modern Institute for the Humanities (MUH), an organization with a network of more than 600 regional campuses (most located in remote locations) stretched across seven time zones. The author details the process used and the obstacles overcome by project managers from the Russian government and the satellite company, the Israeli-based Gilat, to realize the MUH's plan: to link 155 of its campuses via an innovative Internet protocol-based Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT).
