HughesNet Ranks No. 1 in Fulfilling Promises to Customers Four Years in a Row

GERMANTOWN, Md., Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth consecutive year, HughesNet® earned top rankings in the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Measuring Broadband America report. HughesNet is the flagship satellite Internet service for consumers and small businesses from Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services. The newest Measuring Broadband America reports examine actual versus advertised speeds of fixed broadband services nationwide and found HughesNet ranked No. 1 among all ISPs for meeting or exceeding advertised download speeds, four years in a row (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017). For three out of four years (2014, 2015 and 2017), HughesNet ranked No. 1 for meeting or exceeding both download and upload advertised speeds.

"Once again, HughesNet at the top of the list of all types of Internet providers – including satellite, DSL, cable and fiber – is a reflection of our commitment to doing what we say we will do and providing the best possible service to our customers," said Mike Cook, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Hughes. "Hughes continuously monitors and enhances user experience and constantly works to improve speeds and reliability to deliver a high quality broadband service."

Measuring Broadband America is part of the FCC's effort to ensure consumers transparency from their ISPs about network performance. An industry benchmark, the reports evaluated 14 satellite, DSL, cable and fiber Internet access providers that serve more than 80% of the U.S. residential marketplace.

In the most recent report, which covered 2017 data, HughesNet service captured the top spot for both download and upload metrics. HughesNet consistently met or exceeded advertised speeds, delivering 180% of advertised download speeds and nearly 200% of advertised upload speeds.

Among satellite broadband providers reviewed by the FCC in the latest report, HughesNet Gen5 (the currently available service offering) ranked first in all 11 performance categories measured, including consistency of speed, latency and average webpage download time.

HughesNet service plans are designed to deliver download speeds of 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 3 Mbps, consistent with the FCC definition of "broadband."

Hughes invented the commercial VSAT (very small aperture satellite terminal) and pioneered consumer satellite Internet service and the technology to support it—from satellites to gateways to modems. The FCC's ranking is a testament to Hughes 30-plus years of experience in advancing the state-of-the-art in satellite technology and delivering an innovative, connected experience for customers everywhere.

QUITO, Ecuador, Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, today announced the launch of HughesNet®, its high-speed satellite Internet service for consumers and businesses, in Ecuador. Operating over the Hughes 63 West High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) payload, its broadband coverage reaches more than 90 percent of homes throughout Ecuador, including areas unserved or underserved by terrestrial providers. According to figures from the National Institute of Statistics and the Ecuador Census, though Internet penetration is over 50 percent in urban areas, 61 percent of people in rural areas do not have access to the Internet.

"Following on our successful launch of HughesNet service in Brazil, Colombia and Peru, we take pride in bringing our signature high-speed satellite Internet to Ecuador to help connect the unconnected and bridge the digital divide."

To date, more than 1.3 million consumer and business subscribers in the Americas enjoy the many benefits of high-speed Internet access with HughesNet. Service plans offered in Ecuador come with built-in Wi-Fi and include speeds of up to 50 Mbps download / 5 Mbps upload.

Hughes Awarded Contract to Provide Managed Network Services for State Agencies Throughout Oklahoma

GERMANTOWN, Md., Dec. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, today announced it has been awarded an IDIQ contract by the Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) to deliver HughesON™ Managed Network Services including High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) connectivity for state agencies. The contract authorizes Hughes to work with Oklahoma's 130+ state agencies and affiliated organizations -- including counties, cities, school districts and hospitals -- to optimize networks to meet agency and constituents' needs throughout the state.

"Across the country, government agencies are now completely dependent upon network delivered applications to meet constituent needs – whether through cloud platforms like Office365 or accessing public record storage in state data centers," said Tony Bardo, assistant vice president of government solutions at Hughes. "Our HughesON solutions will take Oklahoma's agencies to the next level of network performance and availability, employing a cost-effective mix of wireline, wireless and satellite broadband technologies across all locations—and all under a comprehensive managed services agreement with a trusted partner."

HughesON Managed Network Services include the award-winning Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) solution, managed security packages, Wi-Fi and Voice over IP (VoIP), all with 99.99% network availability, 24 x 7 network monitoring and security operations support. With Hughes managing these services, agencies can incorporate best-of-breed connectivity at each site to achieve mission objectives, enabling them to focus on meeting constituents' needs.

Under the contract vehicle, state and local agencies in Oklahoma can select from a range of broadband solutions for each location, including those which lack adequate wireline connectivity. For example, the Hughes HTS satellite service offers 25 Mbps download speeds across the state and can be used to connect dispersed sites such as park offices, environmental stations or other facilities that may be limited by slow DSL and MPLS services – or have no wireline services at all.

"Our HTS service offering is ideal for Oklahoma with its large swaths of rural areas and low population density," Bardo added. "With few or no wireline service offerings in many of these areas across the state, satellite delivers the high speeds required to meet bandwidth demands. We applaud the state for taking a progressive approach to connecting their government offices so they can meet their missions effectively."

Findings reveal they are reaching a tipping point, with increased network complexity and demand driving migration to new solutions.

Applications Straining Network Resources

Survey respondents confirm that conventional networks are struggling to handle a rapidly growing volume of store applications and technologies:

The most prevalent business-critical applications running on about nine in ten store networks are personnel management, employee training and inventory/ordering.
Mobility requirements drive network demand with 75 percent of stores running mobile POS and 79 percent accepting mobile payments.
Major strains on network resources cited by more than eight in ten respondents include in-store Wi-Fi, security systems and digital signage/video displays.

Current Networks Not Up to the Task

Store operators are less than satisfied with current network solutions. According to the study:

Over 40 percent are not satisfied with overall performance of their network.
More than a quarter are less than satisfied with their current network security, despite the fact that security ranks as respondents' number-one priority.
Network challenges cause business disruption, with two-thirds of retailers reporting outages at least twice a year and one in five experiencing outages monthly.
Retailers Seeking Solutions

Though 64 percent of survey participants report that internal IT personnel manage their networks, only one-third prefer that model for their business future. Nearly half would prefer a mix of internal IT and external support. 21 percent would prefer to migrate fully to a third-party managed service provider within two years.

While only 30 percent are employing software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN), more than half intend to test SD-WAN in the next year or adopt the solution within two years, making SD-WAN the dominant networking solution for these enterprises by 2020.

"This report unveils the critical performance and security challenges faced by enterprises in a dynamically changing period of the industry, fueled by the ever-increasing need for connectivity and bandwidth," said Mike Tippets, vice president of Enterprise Marketing for Hughes. "In the face of the resulting technology 'arms race,' businesses would be wise to work with a trusted partner offering a comprehensive and experienced approach to network services—easing their burden on internal resources and freeing them to focus on succeeding in the marketplace."

Hughes has been a leading provider of managed network services to enterprises for more than 30 years and has deployed more than 30,000 SD-WAN sites across big box, department store, specialty retail and grocery stores, among others.

Hughes Awarded Contract to Prototype Multi-Modem Adaptor for DoD Wideband SATCOM Architectural Analysis

GERMANTOWN, Md., May 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, announced it has been awarded a follow-on contract to continue the second phase of a pilot study program to assess the feasibility of interoperability across multiple satellite communication (SATCOM) systems for the Department of Defense (DoD). Under this award, Hughes will be responsible for prototyping a Flexible Modem Interface (FMI) for military terminals that will enable various military and commercial systems and services to interoperate in the field.


Hughes Network Systems, LLC Logo.

"In Phase Two of this program, Hughes is being asked to develop, demonstrate and deliver a hardware and architecture prototype solution to support interoperable SATCOM capabilities for the military, which will help fortify satellite communications in contested environments," said Dr. Rajeev Gopal, Senior Technical Director, Advanced Systems for Hughes. "We look forward to delivering a solution that will increase the resiliency and interoperability of various commercial and military SATCOM systems and services used by the DoD, including over High- Throughput Satellites (HTS)."

The new study – the second over the course of several years – builds on the growing commercial partnership with the DoD to assess what the ideal military SATCOM architecture would look like and how diverse systems could work together. The assessment and prototype deliverables have the potential to create a more resilient, cost-effective, and flexible SATCOM architecture for DoD.

In 2017, Hughes participated in 2 different studies within the first phase of this project. In that first phase, Hughes recommended that the Defense Department pursue a SATCOM strategy that supports interoperability for wideband government applications, which would significantly enhance DoD's communications infrastructure and reduce acquisition and operations costs.

In Phase 2, Hughes will build on its recommendations from the first study and explore how an interoperable system solution could be effectively implemented by developing and producing the new FMI for demonstration and evaluation.

As part of the overall assessment, Hughes will be evaluating the needs and capabilities that DoD will require in the future, including a secure and affordable wideband communications architecture (WCA) that can facilitate varied and redundant space and ground transports. The FMI prototype will be demonstrated within the context of a mission management architecture that supports wide-beam, spot-beam, and on-board processing satellites, including new GEO HTS and low earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations.

"The overall goal for Hughes is to help the Defense Department produce a solution that expands the capabilities of the U.S. government's satellite communications," said Rick Lober, vice president and general manager of defense and intelligence systems at Hughes. "To do that, we will examine how to create an interoperable system that is flexible and resilient, allowing DoD's various global applications to operate over its own satellite network as well as leveraging commercial satellites, management systems, gateways, waveforms, and modems for DoD terminals to increase mission assurance."

Hughes Releases White Paper Outlining Communications Network Preparedness Recommendations Ahead of 2018 Hurricane Season

8:27 am ET April 12, 2018 (PR Newswire)


Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, today issued a new white paper, Lessons from Disaster Relief - The Importance of Communications Resiliency and Preparedness, outlining specific emergency preparedness recommendations ahead of the 2018 hurricane season. Featured in the inaugural issue of the Politico Space newsletter, it documents lessons learned after being one of the first organizations on the ground providing communications support in Texas, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands following one of the worst hurricane seasons on record.

https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/455788/Hughes_Network_Systems_Logo.jpg

"There is an urgent need for emergency preparedness plans to include communications networks," said Tony Bardo, Assistant Vice President of Government Solutions at Hughes. "Terrestrial communications alone are vulnerable to storm damage, making satellite connectivity an essential part of resilient networks needed to support first responders and critical decision-making across multiple agencies."

Hughes makes specific recommendations for network infrastructure preparedness centering their message on network path diversity. In Puerto Rico for example, Hurricane Maria compromised the 90-year-old Guajataca Dam while the island was without power and terrestrial communications. By connecting a previously installed Hughes VSAT to a power generator, government officials were able to call agencies in the U.S. and implement an immediate evacuation order for an estimated 70,000 people. In this instance, path diverse satellite connectivity helped avert a potential catastrophe.

Specific recommendations outlined in the white paper include the following:

-- Deploying Path Diverse Network Backup Channels - Satellite systems provide seamless backup connectivity for critical networks like 9-1-1. Commercial retailers, gas stations and other businesses are also strongly encouraged to utilize path diversity to keep credit and debit point-of-sale (PoS) transactions online.

-- Storing Emergency Systems - Prepare and identify locations where fly-away satellite terminals can be safely stored. Having systems readily available for rapid deployment are critical to support urgent communications for response and recovery missions.

-- Increasing Awareness and Government Funding - Lack of awareness about the need for network path diversity and lack of government funding both contribute to a deficiency in readiness. Government agencies should look to adopt path diversity and resiliency especially ahead of hurricane season. This would ensure less time spent trying to procure and deploy communications solutions during the chaos following a major emergency.
