During CommunicAsia2018, Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes) was selected by PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), the oldest private telecommunication and information service provider in Indonesia, to provide the JUPITER™ System for broadband services over the PSN VI High-Throughput Satellite (HTS).
The comprehensive Hughes solution includes HG240 Gateways, a variety of remote terminals, and a central network management system, enabling PSN to deliver satellite broadband services to consumers and businesses across Indonesia. The JUPITER System features enhanced networking capabilities and supports speeds up to 300 Mbps to an individual terminal. Powering HughesNet™, the number-one satellite Internet service in the world with 1.2 million subscribers, the JUPITER System is an ideal solution to support the high-growth potential of the PSN broadband offering. It incorporates a central network management system for efficient bandwidth allocation across multiple beams and operational control of remote terminals.
In 2017, Internet user penetration in Indonesia was only 39.7 percent, leaving approximately six million Indonesia households without Internet connectivity. With its PSN IV and the JUPITER system, PSN will deliver high-speed Internet access, including Wi-Fi hotspots, helping bridge the digital divide in Indonesia, reaching unconnected households and businesses throughout the region.
Adi Rahman Adiwoso, CEO at PSN, said the copmany required a robust and scalable ground architecture to support the volume of users and traffic that the firm expects to serve with PSN V. Thanks to a long-standing relationship with Hughes and the proven capabilities of the JUPITER System, PSN looks forward to serving the growing data needs of customers in all corners of Indonesia.
