Hughes' Moscow Tech Seminar Focuses In On Ka-Band

[SatNews] Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) held its 18th annual technology seminar in Moscow on May 14th and showcased the company's latest generation JUPITER System and Ka-band technologies to help power Russia’s growth in high-speed satellite services.

This annual event gathered top management from Russia’s leading telecom service providers, government officials, and media. As a pioneer in satellite broadband technology and leading provider of high-speed satellite Internet services, Hughes is supplying its latest generation JUPITER System to operators around the world to help bridge the digital divide. With more than 60,000 satellite terminals shipped to over 20 service provider customers in Russia and CIS, Hughes leads the market with over 50 percent market share.

Topics covered included an overview of emerging trends in the global satellite industry, best practice examples, and customer case studies across enterprise, government and consumer sectors from many countries, presented by Hughes executives and invited guest speakers. Top managers from some of the leading Russian service providers, including RSCC, Ka-Internet and KB Iskra, took part in a panel discussion on the exciting prospect of mass market services as consumers and businesses demand higher-speed and media-rich applications.

“We welcome our growing base of customers from across the region to this 18th edition of our popular technology conference,” said Konstantin Lanin, head of the Hughes office in Moscow. “Starting with RSCC’s launch last year of Express AMC 5 to deliver broadband services in the eastern zone, Russia has begun expanding its Ka-band satellite coverage nationwide. Hughes is proud to help power this growth with our advanced JUPITER™ System, which in just a few short years has become the leading choice of operators around the world—building on its success as the cornerstone of HughesNet® service in North America, today with over 1 million active users and counting. The advent of  Ka-band technology presents our satellite service provider partners with even more promising business opportunities to meet the growing demand for high-speed services in both urban and rural areas across the huge areas either unserved or underserved by terrestrial broadband technologies. Our in-country technical support and sales teams stand ready to offer their expertise to help tackle any challenge or project.”
