Hughes Network Systems, LLC Key Developments

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Launches Enhancements to Hugheson Digital Media Solutions for Government

Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced enhancements to its HughesON(TM) Digital Media Solutions for Government platform. These new capabilities increase social media integration, enable low-cost cloud services for content storage and expand emergency notification functionality. Social media is an integrated part of HughesON Digital Media Solutions and the enhancements bring a full slate of features to more effectively access Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Flickr, Google+ and Instagram. Easy-to-use templates and HTML5 make for rapid creation of social media feeds, enabling agencies to deliver relevant content based on location. Hughes was an early adopter of cloud-based storage and distribution services, and the latest enhancements include the option to use Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) with the full suite of HughesON Digital Signage Solutions. Using the cloud for content storage and access simplifies operational management and resource requirements. HughesON Digital Media Solutions also includes an existing base of valuable experience proven in the private sector and used to create vibrant digital signage that incorporates relevant social media posts and interactive mediums. This attention-grabbing signage is ready for use in motor vehicle departments, public hospitals, universities, correctional facilities and other public sector organizations that have traditionally struggled to disseminate valuable information. The new enhancements to HughesON Digital Media Solutions are available now via GSA Schedule 70 #GS-35F-0907P.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Announces Enhancements to ActiveQoS(TM) Optimization Technology

Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced two new enhancements to its ActiveQoS(TM) optimization technology that significantly improve network performance for government cloud applications and 4G wireless connectivity. Part of the comprehensive suite of HughesON(TM) Managed Network Solutions, these enhancements deliver government agencies true end-to-end quality of service (QoS) over commonly available broadband. The Hughes ActiveQoS technology enhancements significantly accelerate the performance of broadband networks. Built into the Hughes 4x00 series Branch Gateways as part of the comprehensive suite of HughesON Managed Solutions, ActiveQoS automatically classifies and prioritizes applications based on their traffic flow characteristics--for example, prioritizing emergency data and video over a file backup. The new enhanced Hughes ActiveQoS technology is available now via GSA Schedule 70 #GS-35F-0907P.

Hughes Network Systems, LLC Partners with Tampa Microwave to Offer Portable Manpack Satellite Terminals

Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) teamed with Tampa Microwave to embed their HX-based modem into the Tampa Microwave ManPack family of small tactical satellite terminals. The terminals range in size from 45cm to 1.3m and feature WGS and FIPS compliant Hughes HX technology that can support X, Ku- and Ka-band communications for both star and mesh type networks. The terminals' compact design and lightweight backpack facilitate one-person set-up, operation and transportation. The ManPack satellite terminals offer a portable SATCOM solution that can stand up to and function in harsh tactical military environments. They feature auto-assist pointing which allows for rapid set up and satellite acquisition by personnel with limited training. Each unit in the family is rugged and quiet as they operate efficiently in any environment without the need for cooling fans. This agreement allows Hughes to pair the ManPack terminals with embedded Hughes HX series modems to meet the needs of a broad domestic and international customer base through an international reseller agreement.
