Five Service Providers Choose Hughes JUPITER System to Power Satellite Broadband Services throughout Indonesia January 28, 2020 JUPITER System , Company News false Part of the Indonesian government connectivity project to help bridge the digital divide Five Indonesian service providers have selected the industry- leading Hughes JUPITERTM System to power their satellite broadband services throughout the country—including Lintasarta, Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), Teleglobal and Telkom/TelkomSat. Each won tender bids from BAKTI, a division of the Indonesian Ministry of Communications and Information, under its initiative to help close the digital divide by deploying satellite connectivity across 8,000 cellular and Internet access sites. Each provider independently chose the JUPITER System as part of its winning solution. Over 7 GHz of spectrum will be utilized across multiple satellites to extend cellular services to Indonesians in areas outside the reach of terrestrial backhaul networks (fiber or microwave), while also connecting government offices and community centers to the Internet. “Hughes is proud to be the trusted supplier of satellite networking technology for this important initiative in helping close the digital divide in Indonesia,” said Vaibhav Magow, assistant vice president, International Division at Hughes. “It’s a testament to our proven JUPITER System being the platform of choice globally in meeting operator needs for high performing, economical and efficient satellite solutions to connect the unconnected.” BAKTI required that the winning bidders employ High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) capacity, necessitating a flexible ground system solution that readily accommodates HTS spot-beams. Moreover, the latest JUPITER technology incorporates Layer 2 functionality to seamlessly integrate high traffic terrestrial and satellite traffic—supporting the acceleration of 16,000 TCP sessions—an essential feature for applications with many simultaneous users, such as cellular backhaul. Designed with advanced DVB-S2X, the JUPITER System employs 16APSK return channels to deliver more bits per Hertz, which, combined with reduced spacing of the return channel, yields higher bandwidth efficiency and lower service cost for operators.
