Hughes launches HN NOCXT carrier-grade broadband satellite hub

Hughes Network Systems announced the launch of its newcarrier-grade hub configuration optimized for medium- to large-scale networks.

Employing an efficient systems architecture, the 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


Operational on 5 continents and supporting over 1 million
broadband terminal sites, the HN System is the most advanced and widely
deployed satellite networking infrastructure in the marketplace, and is fully
compliant with the IP over Satellite (IPoS) global standard the world’s first
to be approved by TIA, ETSI and ITU.


The HN NOCXT is the latest member of the HN family and
the ideal choice to deliver high-speed IP services over satellite, supporting
an expanding range of multi-media, video, data and voice applications.


“Hughes continues to push the envelope by further
developing and optimizing the HN System. As our latest generation hub
configuration, the HN NOCXT comes packed with high capacity and advanced
features from a single rack, making the roll-out of  large-scale satellite
broadband networks very cost-effective,” said Robert Feierbach, vice
