Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments
Hughes Network Systems, LLC Launches New HX 5.0 Broadband Satellite System
Mar 10 14
Hughes Network Systems, LLC launched its new HX 5.0 broadband satellite system, offering greater scalability, performance and reliability, among other enhancements. HX 5.0 is a carrier-grade, highly versatile IP broadband platform that builds on the widely successful HX System 4.0. It is the ideal solution for operators seeking to grow their business by delivering rapidly expanding spectrum of broadband applications -- from high-speed Internet/Intranet access, to IP trunking, 3G/4G cellular backhaul, Virtual Network Operator (VNO) hosting and Communications On-The-Move (COTM) for airborne/maritime/land. Seamless Scalability -- Enabling operators to scale cost-effectively from a few sites to very large networks with thousands of remote terminals. Operators can start small and readily expand as customer demand grows for any mix of services, such as Internet access, VoIP and video-on-demand. High Capacity and Resiliency -- Matching its greater scalability, the HX 5.0 includes a new set of high-capacity IP servers for the hub gateway, with throughputs of up to 40 Mbps. And this higher capacity comes in a smaller footprint, saving costs on floor space and power. Higher Performance -- With the HX 5.0, Hughes has enhanced router software to improve throughput performance. Individual remote terminals can now support throughputs of 20 Mbps for TCP-processed traffic running through the routers. Higher Efficiency -- The HX 5.0 introduced new byte-level compression (BLC) to optimize network efficiency and reduce the bandwidth requirements of network traffic by up to 50 percent. BLC compression uses data caching and powerful algorithms to exploit duplication of byte sequences in a data stream. Enhanced QoS -- The HX 5.0 includes two new QoS (quality of service) features to ensure fair allocation of bandwidth. A weighted fair queuing (WFQ) feature determines how much bandwidth to allocate users in the event of congestion or high demand. Differentiated Service Plans (DSPs) enable operators to adjust plans in times of congestion. Multiple Gateway Diversity -- Two forms of diversity are available with the HX 5.0 to facilitate multi-spectrum deployment, such as Ka- and Ku-band. Gateway RFT Diversity overcomes rain fade by instantly routing traffic to a secondary RFT facility with only a momentary interruption in user data flow. With Full Gateway Diversity remote terminals are automatically migrated to a secondary network in the event of a primary network outage.
The US General Services Administration Awards CS2 Task Order to Hughes Network Systems LLC
Mar 4 14
Hughes Network Systems LLC announced the award of a task order by the US General Services Administration (GSA) in support of the Government Education and Training Network (GETN) to provide commercial satellite communications (COMSATCOM) end-to-end solutions to enable the network's distance learning capabilities. Financial details of this task order were not available. The task order, awarded through GSA's Custom Satellite Communication Solutions (CS2) contract vehicle, is for a term of four and one half years including the base and option years. The award of the task order marks the second GETN award for Hughes, following the first order in December 2007 under the GSA's SATCOM II vehicle to provide broadband satellite solutions and services. Under the task order, it will provide a one-way video and two-way audio network for GETN users via broadband satellite. More specifically, Hughes will provide satellite capacity, project management, COMSATCOM engineering system design, configuration, installation, implementation and training, maintenance and operational support and helpdesk support.
Hughes Network Systems, LLC Receives CS2 Task Order to Provide Satellite Broadband Solutions and Services to the Government Education and Training Network

Under the task order, Hughes will provide a one-way video and two-way audio network for GETN users via broadband satellite. Specifically, Hughes will provide: Satellite capacity; Project management; COMSATCOM engineering system design, configuration, installation, implementation and training; Maintenance and operational support; and helpdesk support. Digital video and audio training programs will be broadcast to students located across the 50 states and the Caribbean via a geosynchronous satellite, with return channels from these sites enabling students to interact and communicate with the instructor. Hughes will ensure cost savings by consolidating bandwidth for the GETN community based on historical usage data estimates, and enable agency users to share programming over the same satellite space segment.
