Abstract: This paper presents solution to satellite communication technologies to improve quality of education and the benefit of digital technology to where previously Information and communication Technology (ICT) infustructure could not reach in Ghana. The target is to establish the best connectivity, infrastructure and services for E-learning and cooperate organizations in urban educational institutions and large rural and remote locations that lack infrastructure. The huge cost for wideband and significant broadband connectivity requirements, quality delivery of content, applications interactivity is the bases for exploiting DVB-RCS technology. The Architecture of DVB-RCS based satellite network supports interactive and multimedia applications. This network will deliver live streaming contents to numerous users simultaneously at any time anywhere. The aim is an implementation of high bandwidth multicast satellite technologies for education. The technology address live streaming of voice, data and video over IP contents simultaneously to numerous users in any location. This initiative is part of development of a two way satellite network, to support E-learning environments with emphasis with situations in Ghana, with solutions based on Digital Video Broadcasting-Return Channel via Satellite
