Connections are made in mesh topology on to-point basis between any nodes in the network using on demand SCPC carrier.

The key feature of SCPC DAMA is that bandwidth is provided to the remote only when it is required. This helps in better utilization of satellite bandwidth amongst various VSAT's in a closed user network. SCPC, DAMA, NMS is like a telephone exchange in the sky, which works on the switching concept.
