Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Wins Contract from African Development Bank

Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced that it was awarded a contract by the African Development Bank (AfDB) to expand the managed MPLS services it provides to AfDB. AfDB has been a Hughes managed services customer since 2008, employing a primary communications network of broadband satellite terminals installed at 32 AfDB field offices throughout Africa. In 2013, managed services were expanded to include MPLS circuits at four AfDB sites to headquarters in Abidjan, Ivory Coast from a teleport in Germany. This new 3-year contract calls for expanding MPLS connectivity to an additional seven bank locations including regional resource centers and key field offices. Major applications include SAP, VoIP, video conferencing and high-speed Internet access. AfDB had stringent requirements for their network including: high availability; uniform SLA and QoS offerings; a single vendor to provide full turnkey managed services and ongoing system engineering, installation, and field maintenance; monthly reporting, statistics and quarterly review on usage and performance; and 24x7 multi-lingual help desk.

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.
