Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments

Hughes Network Systems Announces Technology and Marketing Partnership with OneWeb

Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced a technology and marketing partnership with OneWeb to close the digital divide by bringing affordable broadband service to millions of households, schools and organizations worldwide. OneWeb's system will deploy hundreds of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites to enable delivery of high quality, low-latency broadband services, both fixed and mobile, as a combined offering with cellular networks. Along with financial investment by its parent company, EchoStar, Hughes will play a particularly important role by developing the ground system, including gateways and terminals. OneWeb's network of LEOs will be complementary to the Hughes high-throughput JUPITER™ System which operates over geostationary satellites and powers its market-leading HughesNet® high-speed satellite Internet service-now with over 1 million subscribers in North America. Through its service businesses in the U.S., Europe, Brazil and India, and its worldwide base of customers and distribution partners, Hughes will help accelerate the adoption of satellite broadband for people and businesses unserved and underserved by terrestrial services on every continent.

Hughes Network Systems Announces Availability of Hughes Emergency Services

Hughes Network Systems, LLC has announced the availability of Hughes Emergency Services, a suite of satellite network solutions for emergency preparedness, restoral and post-event response, for the 2015 hurricane season. Designed to provide robust, expedited broadband Internet connectivity for government when a disaster strikes and terrestrial networks are most vulnerable to disruption, Hughes Emergency Services deliver high-speed downloads of from 5 Mbps up to 15 Mbps, and can be rapidly deployed virtually anywhere nationwide. While the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center is predicting a below-normal Atlantic hurricane season, officials cautioned that no matter the predictions, any disaster can result in significant impact to communities-such as Hurricane Andrew-a 1992 Category 5 hurricane, which hit South Florida during what was predicted to be a season with only seven hurricanes.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Announces Availability of HT1300 Router

Hughes Network Systems, LLC, has announced the availability of the HT1300, a new high-throughput router for the JUPITER System. The HT1300 is designed to operate over conventional C-band and Ku-band, as well as Ka-band satellite capacity. The HT1300 enables satellite operators around the world to leverage the power and efficiency of the JUPITER System over conventional satellite capacity while positioning them for seamless migration to future high-throughput (HTS) satellites. Capable of 100 Mbps throughput, the newest member of the JUPITER System is the ideal router as the backbone for a high-security corporate network. It boasts high availability and the flexibility via an industry standard L-band interface to operate with a variety of outdoor units-including high-power amplifiers. As a result, operators may not need to replace existing outdoor electronics when upgrading to HT1300 routers and the JUPITER System. With advanced bandwidth management techniques and a full set of IP and enterprise features, the JUPITER System is designed to enable operators to deliver a wide range of services and meet even the most stringent QoS demands. The integrated high-performance traffic classifier of the JUPITER System is able to dynamically classify delay-sensitive, real-time applications like voice or video, in order to deliver the necessary performance demanded by enterprise users. Hardware- based, bi-directional encryption ensures security without compromising performance. Easy to use and cost-efficient to operate, the HT1300 is fully managed from a central location, such as a corporate IT help desk, providing continuous status monitoring and diagnostics that are integral to JUPITER's embedded web GUI, supporting rapid installation and remote site troubleshooting.
