The Hughes Technology Advantage
HN/HX Bandwidth Efficiency
Both the HN and HX systems incorporate significant features and technology to maximize the efficiency of these systems. These features span across a wide range of the OSI model from Physical layer up to the Application layer. Taken together, these features and technologies enable operators to get more throughput than any system on the market.
HN/HX Systems High-Performance IP Routing
Built on a solid foundation of IP features and functionality, the HN/HX systems are the solutions for satellite routing where full IP functionality is required together with performance. The HN/HX systems provide advanced bandwidth management capabilities, which give operators the ability to custom design various Quality of Service (QoS) and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) on a per-remote basis. As pure IP-based solutions, the HN/HX systems incorporate a strong set of IP functions and features.
On-Demand Streaming is a new, performance-enhancing feature of the HN System. On-Demand Streaming gives operators the option to deliver an enhanced range of high Quality of Service (QOS) offerings by dynamically allocating Constant Bit Rate (CBR) transport services per application session.
Every Hughes HN system comes standard with DES encryption for data and Triple DES encryption for key distribution on the outroute carrier. Additionally available on the Hughes system are standards-based IPSec solutions for remote access and site-to-site VPNs. These solutions overcome the inherent performance penalty that IPSec VPNs typically cause standard satellite solutions.
