Satellite communication, especially VSAT, is
still become the main option in establishing long
distance communication. VSAT utilizes satellite
transponder as the media in transmitting and receiving
information. It is necessary to have a transponder
management system to efficient the use of bandwidth
capacity which is very limited. Bad transponder
management could be minimized by the advent of
Satpath System. Satpath is a DAMA-based
telecommunication service. This research aim is to
analyze the bandwidth efficiency of Satellite Palapa D
Transponder 5 Vertical on every poll of Satpath System.
In this work, these items are calculated: Remote Total
Efficiency, Remote Inbound Channel Total Efficiency,
and Empty Bandwidth Efficiency by using Threshold
Keywords : Bandwidth, DAMA, Efficiency, Satpath, VSAT.
