Hughes broadband satellite technology to power services across Ecuador

Hughes Network Systems announced that it has been awarded
a contract with Iseyco Ecuador, a major systems integrator and reseller in
Ecuador, to supply its HN System, including a 9-meter earth station and 1500
remote terminals.


The Hughes technology will power delivery of high-speed Internet access and voice services
across Ecuador under Iseyco’s multi-million dollar contract received from the
Corporacion Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (CNT), Ecuador’s state-run
telecommunications operator.


“We chose to submit our bid using the Hughes HN
System because of its proven technological advantages and competitive
price,” said Patricio Teran, vice president at Iseyco Ecuador.


“The HN System provides excellent optimization of
space segment with higher throughput, allowing us to provide a very
cost-effective service. As a bidder on this important contract, it was
imperative to choose a partner whom we trust would meet our expectations and
those of the government of Ecuador,” Teran added.


“Hughes is proud to be awarded this important new
contract for Ecuador,” said Robert Feierbach, vice president of global
sales and marketing, International Division at Hughes.


“Bringing broadband to businesses and people in all
areas is essential for economic and social development, and our satellite
technology offers the most cost-effective way to reach those who are unserved
or underserved by terrestrial technologies,” Feierbach added.


The HN broadband satellite system is compliant with the
global IPoS/DVB-S2 standard, including ACM (adaptive coding and modulation) and
is designed to support a wide range of bandwidth-intensive services.


Hughes was the first company to implement DVB-S2 with
ACM, the most efficient implementation available, which yields up to 50 percent
greater throughput over the original DVB-S standard.


Hughes Network Systems recently announced the launch
of its new carrier-grade hub configuration optimized for medium- to large-scale


Hughes HN NOCXT sets a new standard in flexibility and
scalability, with numerous features such as guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS)
levels for bandwidth management and acceleration and compression technologies,
making it the ideal solution for service providers and enterprises demanding
the best for their customers.
