Hughes Network Systems, the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, ha said that it has completed installation and commissioned an HN System comprising a multi-spot beam HN NOC (network operations center) and over 1000 HN9200 Ku-band remote terminals for Numix Engineering Sdn Bhd, a partner with Telecom Malaysia for Ku-band satellite VSAT services.
Numix provides telecommunications services to Telekom Malaysia and its customers who are mainly government agencies and small and medium enterprises, supporting a wide range of applications such as broadband Internet, Voice over IP (VoIP), IPTV distribution, and distance education.
“After a competitive analysis, we selected Hughes for their experience in designing satellite gateways for high-throughput system (HTS) platforms and the smaller footprint of Hughes’ NOC equipment along with greater flexibility in NOC scalability,” said Abdul Razak, managing director of Numix Engineering. “Additionally, we were impressed with the new high-performance HN9200 remote terminals with enhanced traffic processing capability, the best-in-class features of bandwidth efficiency, quality of service, and ease of remote commissioning for faster rollouts.”
Commented Vaibhav Magow, regional director of Asia/Pacific sales and marketing for Hughes, said, “We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract. This is further evidence of Hughes leadership in the HTS market and the HN System’s compatibility with the IP Star HTS system in Asia.”
The powerful and flexible HN platform enables Numix to launch broadband service plans with speeds of 4 Mbps and above at cost-effective service pricing, and to provide high throughput broadband links for government agencies and SME using small 98 cm antennas.
