To Russia, With HX Gateway—Hughes To Modernize ROILCOM's System

[SatNews] Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), has been selected to provide a major network upgrade for one of Russia’s largest satellite service providers.

ROILCOM LLC has agreed to purchase a Hughes HX Gateway and 240 VSATs to modernize its system and extend its networking capabilities. This technology upgrade builds on ROILCOM’s relationship with Hughes which began in 2007, and brings to ROILCOM an array of advanced features, including mesh services operating over single satellite hops between remote sites.

ROILCOM provides a wide range of communication services to Russia’s oil and gas industries, government and private institutions, from traditional telephony, Internet access and data transmission to virtual private networks and real-time video conferencing. Its services extend to some of the country’s most remote regions.

ROILCOM CEO, Andrey Makarov, said, “The telecommunication services market is very competitive and operators need to stay ahead of the game. With this significant network upgrade, we will be able to offer our customers a wider range of services of the highest quality at very competitive prices.”
