Hughes Network Systems announced that PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), a telecommunication service provider in Indonesia, has selected the Hughes JUPITER System to enable services on the Nusantara Lima satellite.
Hughes said 11 JUPITER gateways will power 100 Gbps of capacity to offer internet access to people across Indonesia and nearby countries.
PSN earlier selected the JUPITER System for the Satellite of the Republic of Indonesia (SATRIA), currently under construction, and the Nusantara Satu satellite (formerly known as PSN VI), now in service.
“We have put the JUPITER System to the test on several satellites, transforming satellite signals into efficient and cost-effective solutions,” Adi Rahman Adiwoso, Chief Executive Officer at PSN, said in a news statement.
In addition to choosing the Hughes technology as the ground platform for satellites, PSN employs JUPITER equipment to light up Community Wi-Fi hotspots across Indonesia. The JUPITER System is the VSAT platform from Hughes, in use at more than half of all VSAT implementations.
