The hot topic at Hughes seminars this year from Johannesburg to Moscow to Singapore was the high capacity and advanced capabilities of Ka-band satellite technology, as evidenced by the Hughes SPACEWAY® 3 satellite system in North America and Avanti’s Hylas 1 and 2 satellites soon to be launched over Europe.
Hughes presented its latest technology offerings, including a full spectrum of advanced Ka- and Ku-band technologies, on-the-move platforms, and its vision of the Satellite Home of the Future. Over 100 participants attended each seminar, representing service providers, system integrators, and satellite operators, as well as key government officials and media.
The company unveiled its new HN9400 router, designed to deliver the maximum performance on either Ka- or Ku-band satellite platforms. The HN9400 is the first to incorporate advanced low-density parity check (LDPC) coding, making it the ideal solution to deliver the most bandwidthintensive services on today’s satellites—while being future-proof for next-generation, high-throughput Ka-band systems.
“Together, we are bringing high-quality broadband satellite connectivity to businesses, government agencies, schools, and homes, helping to close the digital divide and grow the economy in all regions,” said Robert Feierbach, vice president of global sales and marketing, International Division at Hughes.
