[SatNews] Hughes Europe, a subsidiary of Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), has announced the sale of a seventh HX hub to international satellite Internet services provider, Bentley Walker, as it expands its solutions and service footprint into the Caribbean and South America for the first time.
The additional Network Operations Centre (NOC) on the AB1 satellite is the first to be deployed on the new SkyLogic teleport situated in Cagliari, Sardinia. It enables Bentley Walker to offer a compact and cost-effective satellite solution for large and small networks provide high Quality of Service (QoS) in another emerging market lacking an established communications infrastructure and offering huge potential. This represents the first deployment of the HX system in South America. The Hughes platform employs the most efficient implementation of the DVB/S2 industry standard including Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) and is fully compliant with IPoS (IP over Satellite), the first global satellite industry standard approved by TIA in North America, and ETSI and ITU in Europe. As part of this, specialised QoS and advanced proprietary TCP/IP compression are designed to deliver faster broadband downloads compared to unprocessed feeds.
