Hughes inaugurates third India satellite hub in Hyderabad
TT Correspondent |  New Delhi |  17 Sep 2010

Hughes Communications on Thursday, inaugurated its third India satellite hub at Hyderabad that will not only help the company in enhancing its offerings to its clients but will also serve as a disaster recovery back-up site. The company plans to invest Rs25 crore in the new hub over the next three years.

The hub is spread over 23,000 sq.ft area and is based on DVB-S2 technology with ACM/AIS (Compensation technology for rain disruptions) which Hughes says is the first of its kind in India.

“India’s strong GDP growth continues to drive businesses beyond the major cities into the heartland creating new economic opportunities and aspirations for people. Connectivity has emerged as a key enabler for both business and Government to deliver services to this growing section of society. Broadband penetration in India hasn’t picked up in proportion to the growth of mobile subscribers and still vast areas remain un-served, presenting a huge opportunity for satellite operations. Geographic challenges in addressing these markets make satellite the most reliable form of technology delivering connectivity. The new hub marks yet another industry first from Hughes in terms of redundancy and backup and will focus on addressing the connectivity needs of the fast growing SMB segment in India,” said Partho Banerjee, President & MD, Hughes Communications.
