Hughes Network Systems, LLC, a provider of broadband satellite solutions and services, has announced the availability of its JUPITER high-throughput technology, beginning with two new Ka-band satellite routers - the HN9600 and HN9800.
According to the company, these Ka-band routers incorporate the same JUPITER technology that is the cornerstone for HughesNet Gen4 high-speed satellite Internet service in the US.
"JUPITER high-throughput technology has exceeded expectations in powering growth of our new HughesNet Gen4 service launched last Octoberbringing 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 an integrated external radio unit with a single IFL cable, the new routers are fully compliant with the IPoS/DVB-S2 standard for optimized delivery of broadband services over satellite channels, the company said.
The HN9800 reportedly incorporates LDPC coding for superior modem performance with improved bandwidth efficiency. It also includes many WAN optimization features such as accelerated TCP and HTTP acceleration, DNS caching and data compression. The HN9600 is designed for customers seeking cost-effective connectivity for consumer/small office installations. It incorporates advanced coding and WAN optimization features, while also supporting Hughes On-Demand Streaming capabilities for high-quality Voice-over-IP (VoIP) traffic, the company added.
