Hughes bags orders for Indonesian banking sector

Hughes Network Systems, a provider of broadband satellite
solutions and services, announced that two major banks in Indonesia have awarded
expansion orders totaling more than 1,500 Hughes HX satellite terminals to
expand their existing branch and ATM networks.

These expansion orders bring the number of Indonesian
banking sites to over 10,000 utilizing Hughes broadband satellite technology,
which represents more than 70 percent of all satellite sites in the banking
sector, validating the Company’s overall market leadership.


“Hughes is proud to be chosen to further expand Indonesian banking networks with our advanced HX platform,” said Robert
Feierbach, vice president of International sales and marketing at Hughes.


“The HX was designed specifically for networks requiring a high QoS (Quality of Service) requirement that banks demand, and
employs unmatched bandwidth management capabilities so that both service
providers and their end users realize the most cost-effective solution
available in the marketplace,” Feierbach added.

The Hughes HX System employs the most cost-efficient implementation of the global IPoS/DVB-S2
satellite industry standard, including Adaptive Coding and Modulation, the
world’s first to be approved by ETSI, TIA and ITU.


Utilizing a spectrum of novel bandwidth management
techniques, the HX enables operators to provide their customers with high
quality services while maximizing satellite efficiency and lowering operational

Instead of dedicating bandwidth to specific users, the HX System
allocates satellite bandwidth as a “virtual pool,” providing an
“IP cloud in the sky.” If a customer or group of terminals is not
fully utilizing their allocated bandwidth, the HX System reallocates this
bandwidth to other users, while assuring that bandwidth will be available when
