Hughes Network Systems + Galaxy Broadband Communications... These Upgrades Enable New Expansions... (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) has announced that Galaxy Broadband Communications, Inc., a leading Canadian satellite services company, has selected the Hughes HX System 4.0 to expand its offerings in the United States and Canada. Galaxy has purchased a Hughes HX gateway and HX90 and HX200 satellite terminals to provide IP networks for Resource, Government, and Enterprise markets in North America.

Galaxy deployed its first Hughes HN System gateway in 2006, and currently owns and operates multiple HN System gateways at its Network Operations Center (NOC) in Mississauga, Ontario. With the addition of the HX System 4.0, Galaxy is expanding its existing Ku-band services in Canada and the U.S., as well as adding a new Ka-band service covering the resource-rich areas of Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, and Labrador.

Hughes' new HX Remote Routers.
Launched in 2012, the HX System 4.0 includes a host of technology enhancements such as low jitter/delay and real-time streaming. The HX90 and HX200 broadband satellite routers feature high efficiency and lower satellite operational costs through an optimized encapsulation scheme on the outroute, and through LDPC coding on the inroute, providing operators with best-in-class throughputs and capacity efficiencies.

HX ExpertNMS™ (Network Management System) is incorporated in HX System 4.0, providing enhanced network management capabilities for Virtual Network Operators (VNOs). ExpertNMS enables VNOs to monitor and control elements within their operational service domain, allowing a wholesale operator to effectively partition their network and provide sub-network monitoring and control capabilities. ExpertNMS also provides significant monitoring and reporting capabilities to enterprise-grade users with multiple-site networks.
