Hughes Introduces New JUPITER Ka-Band Routers To Global Market

GERMANTOWN, Md., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes), the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, today announced the availability of its JUPITER high-throughput technology to the global market, beginning with two new Ka-band satellite routers ― the HN9600 and HN9800.

These advanced Ka-band routers incorporate the same JUPITER technology that is the cornerstone for HughesNet ® Gen4 high-speed satellite Internet service in the U.S. With over 659,000 subscribers (YE2012), HughesNet is the world's largest consumer satellite service, offering a choice of affordable plans and speeds up to 15 Mbps. The first two international service providers to offer the new routers are Avanti Communications on its Hylas 1 and 2 satellites over Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and Yahsat, on its Yahclick service in the Middle East, Africa and SW Asia.

"JUPITER high-throughput technology has exceeded expectations in powering growth of our new HughesNet Gen4 service launched last October — bringing faster speeds, greater capacity and a richer network experience to our North American customers," said Pradman Kaul, president of Hughes. "But Hughes is the global leader in Ka-band satellite communications, and so these new routers represent just the first steps in seeding JUPITER technology worldwide."

Featuring a compact, integrated external radio unit with a single IFL cable for easy and rapid installation, both the HN9600 and HN9800 support the most bandwidth-demanding services offered on the latest generation of Ka-band satellites. The new routers are fully compliant with the industry-leading IPoS/DVB-S2 standard for optimized delivery of broadband services over satellite channels.
