Hughes Network Systems announced on Tuesday that TMC has named the Hughes HT2000L Multi-Path Terminal as winner of its 2019 TMC Labs INTERNET TELEPHONY Innovation Award. 

"The future of business is hyper-connected. Virtually all distributed enterprises – such as quick service restaurants, convenience stores and gas stations – span urban, suburban and remote locations that all require secure, reliable and scalable Internet connections,” said Dan Rasmussen, SVP of North America Enterprise for Hughes. “The HT2000L meets that need with a single, plug-and-play device that delivers broadband speeds as either a satellite modem, an LTE modem or both."

The HT2000L provides connectivity for both satellite and LTE services in a single hardware terminal; either operates as the primary network path or as back-up, with automatic failover switching between the two paths.

"Hughes is honored to be recognized for this innovation in multi-path networking and performance optimization technology," Rasmussen added. "Our commitment to going the extra mile to deliver value to our customers inspires us to innovate industry-defining solutions."
