Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments

Hughes Network Systems LLC Begins Final Testing of Highest Capacity Broadband Satellite

Hughes Network Systems LLC announced the successful completion of in-orbit testing and handover of EchoStar XIX from Space Systems Loral (SSL), manufacturers of this next-generation, Ka-band high-throughput satellite. Placed into geostationary orbit at 22,236 miles (35,786 kilometers) above the earth, the broadband satellite was successfully launched on a United Launch Alliance [3] Atlas V from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida on December 18, 2016, and extensive in-orbit testing was completed in an extremely efficient manner.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Demonstrates SATCOM Capability for Rotary Aircraft HD Video Transmissions

Hughes Network Systems, LLC has announced that its Defense and Intelligence Systems Division (DISD) recently demonstrated a 360-degree Beyond-Line-of-Sight (BLoS) SATCOM capability transmitting HD video through rotating blades on a NorthStar Aviation 407 Multi-Role Attack Helicopter. This new advancement in SATCOM technology integrates the Hughes HM200 airborne modem and two lightweight antennas mounted on top of the helicopter's weapons platforms via an easy Roll-on/Roll-off installation. As a new lightweight capability— 50% lighter than previous systems— it can be adapted to any helicopter platform given its low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) properties, giving pilots more flexibility and uninterrupted transmission of full motion HD video over a full 360-degree range. The two advanced airborne terminals have very low SWaP constraints, providing an capability enabling NorthStar Aviation to quickly place the antennas at strategic low-risk locations on the helicopter without costly structural changes and re-certification. As result, users have the flexibility to integrate the 360-degree solution on an ever-growing variety of rotary wing platforms for missions that range from ISR gathering, to search and rescue, disaster relief, and other applications requiring live video feeds for situational awareness.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Launches Fully Managed SD-WAN Solution for Distributed Organizations

Hughes Network Systems, LLC introduced the Hughes Managed SD-WAN, delivered as an end-to-end turnkey network. Hughes Managed SD-WAN joins the comprehensive range of HughesON™ networking services for highly distributed organizations, such as those in the retail, restaurant, financial services and government sectors. The Hughes Managed SD-WAN helps to overcome these challenges with significant benefits compared to traditional private networks, including cloud readiness, high performance, higher network and application availability, network flexibility and cost savings. It leverages innovative Hughes ActiveTechnologies™ to transform ordinary broadband connections into enterprise-grade high performance WANs, including support for demanding applications such as VoIP and video. These include: ActivePath™, which incorporates powerful algorithms and techniques that exploit the use of multiple branch paths. It ensures applications are delivered without interruption across the secure WAN regardless of degradation on a single path; ActiveQoS™, which continuously measures end-to-end capacity on broadband links, dynamically updating multi-level path priority queues and traffic shapers to best maximize branch bandwidth usage. This results in dramatically improved performance for VoIP and video traffic across all outlets, especially those served by lower bandwidth service plans; ActiveClassifier™, which automatically and dynamically classifies traffic based on flow behavior, eliminating the time-consuming process of manually configuring and maintaining rules to classify and prioritize specific applications required by otherSD-WAN products. This optimization is particularly critical for real-time and cloud-based applications allowing this traffic to be prioritized over non-time sensitive data; and ActiveCompression™, which reduces network congestion and improves application performance, especially at bandwidth-constrained branch sites. As part of the solution, Hughes integrates and manages cost effective nationwide broadband access, including cable, fiber, cellular and high-throughput satellite transports in flexible configurations.
