Hughes SATCOM Services Selected by Axesat For Colombian Enterprise Customers

Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) announced that Axesat has selected Hughes satellite to offer connectivity to enterprise customers throughout Colombia — the Ka-band service will be delivered using capacity on the Hughes 63 West satellite, which provides coverage across 96 percent of the population of Colombia.

In addition to selling enterprise service plans from Hughes in Colombia, Axesat is also an authorized reseller of HughesNet® satellite Internet service for consumers and small businesses in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile. Along with Hughes satellite connectivity, Axesat offers enterprise customers a suite of managed network services to make the most of their multi-site networks.

Mauricio Segovia, CEO, Axesat, said the company focus is on serving companies in locations where terrestrial infrastructure is not available. With Hughes Ka-band service, the company will offer these customers better performance, pricing and flexibility to go with the Axesat managed services that today’s distributed businesses need to make the most of their networks.

Hugo Frega, Senior Director, International Division, Hughes, noted that Axesat’s choice of offering Hughes satellite service to its customers enables them to be more competitive in their market. Hughes values this relationship with Axesat and the trust they place in Hughes to help their customers throughout Colombia transform their networks and make the most of the cloud-based applications that businesses depend on.
