Hughes Network Systems has announced a new suite of innovations that will advance connectivity beyond single-transport services, yielding smart solutions for small business, enterprise, aeronautical and military applications, the company announced on Thursday.
"Everyone wants to be connected, everywhere, all the time, and we are innovating the technologies and services that make constant connectivity possible for people, enterprises and things," said Pradman Kaul, president of Hughes.
New Hughes technologies include multi-transport terminals, satellite roaming capabilities and patented Hughes ActivePath technology that dynamically senses and selects the best available transport technology.
Hughes’ HT2000L, its multi-transport terminal, will provide connectivity for satellite, cellular, and LTE services. The company has integrated a primary network path with automatic failover switching to enable a compact software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution.
The company has also developed satellite system roaming, referred to as the JUPITER System. The new software will utilize Hughes’ VSAT platform for broadband satellite communication on land, sea and air. The system supports roaming capabilities for aeronautical and maritime mobility applications.
Hughes has also introduced Hughes ActivePath Technology to power multi-transport services. A proprietary, artificial intelligence (AI)-driven technology, Hughes ActivePath automatically classifies customer traffic flows and selects the best mode of transport – such as HTS or LTE – to optimize the transmission.
"We are making the connected future possible with innovations that leverage the value of geostationary High-Throughput Satellites (HTS), Non-Geostationary Orbit (NGSO) satellites and terrestrial services, because we need every type of transport to meet the unabating demand for bandwidth."
