Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments

KBZ Gateway Co. Ltd. Selects Hughes Jupiter System as Foundation of New Nationwide Satellite Network in Myanmar

Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced that its JUPITER™ System has been selected by KBZ Gateway Co. Ltd. as the platform for a new high-availability satellite broadband network in Myanmar. Currently under construction, the JUPITER ground control gateways and remote terminals will operate over both Ku- and C-band satellite links to power broadband services for enterprises, consumers and cellular providers across Myanmar. The Hughes JUPITER System features a flexible and robust gateway architecture with lights-out operation, enhanced IPoS air interface for bandwidth efficiency, and high-throughput terminals, enabling operators to achieve the highest possible capacity and efficiency for any satellite broadband implementation. The underlying technology is the powerful JUPITER System on a Chip (SoC), a custom–designed microprocessor employing a multi-core architecture and enabling 100 Mbps of throughput on every terminal in the JUPITER family.

Yahsat Extends Partnership with Hughes for African Satellite Expansion

Yahsat and Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced the award of a major contract for Hughes to deliver its JUPITER™ System and related network operations services in support of Yahsat's planned expansion across Africa in early 2017 with the launch of its new Ka-band satellite, Al Yah 3. The multi-year contract calls for Hughes to supply its JUPITER System gateways and broadband terminals together with its Operating Support System (OSS) and Business Support System (BSS) solutions as a turnkey outsourced managed service. The third Yahsat satellite, Al Yah 3, is scheduled for service launch in early 2017, extending the company's commercial Ka-band coverage to 60% of Africa's population. The procurement of the JUPITER platform is in preparation for the new satellite and is in line with Yahsat's strategy to widen and deepen its reach and continuously enhance its product offerings.

Hughes and Telesat Enter Partnership

Hughes Network Systems and Telesat reported a 15-year agreement for Ka-band capacity on Telesat's new Telstar 19 VANTAGE (T19V) satellite, planned for launch in early 2018. The agreement calls for Telesat to deliver Ka-band capacity of 31 Gbps on T19V covering many countries in South America, which Hughes will utilize to expand its broadband satellite services for consumers. High-throughput JUPITER technology from Hughes will be deployed for the ground system and customer premises equipment.
