The network carries critical credit card processing data, pricing information and other back-office business data between the banks and the company's regional headquarters. Reliability is essential to operations. Consequently, the disaster recovery, dual-path redundancy and load balancing created with the Hughes solution not only boosts performance, but ensures the network stays online. For instance, following the terrible Haiti earthquake in 2010, the Hughes satellite network was able to keep the company's banks in the region operating, serving the population in crisis while it took weeks to restore the terrestrial network.
