Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments

Hughes Network Systems, LLC and Sevis Systems, Inc. Validate JUPITER Satellite Backhaul Solution for High-Performance 3G and LTE Mobile Services

Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes) announced the successful completion of an extensive validation process with Sevis Systems, Inc. confirming high-performance delivery of 3G and LTE mobile services over a Hughes JUPITER(TM) System satellite backhaul solution. The new offering opens the way for mobile network operators (MNOs) to fulfill universal service obligation (USO) programmes by expanding modern 3G/LTE services in lower density and rural areas otherwise left unserved due to the high cost of terrestrial backhaul, whether fibre, cable or microwave. Joint testing of the combined Hughes JUPITER platform with Sevis Intelligent Backhaul Optimiser (IBO) suite of applications, including optimisation and TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) acceleration technology, resulted in substantial bandwidth savings and boosted speeds over satellite links provisioned for both 3G and LTE backhaul. The pre-certified Hughes and Sevis solution is available immediately across the global JUPITER System customer base.
