Spotlight on Innovation: Hughes Engineers Deliver JUPITER System Enhancements January 03, 2020 JUPITER System Community Wi-Fi Cellular Backhaul Mobility false Improved performance and efficiency for world’s most widely deployed satellite network platform Through the decades, Hughes has applied a “virtuous cycle” to developing technologies and services. As a continual feedback loop, this cycle fuels ideas for new technologies that help customers meet their business needs, spurring the development of services, which then further drives innovation. In this way, Hughes engineering leadership consistently meets the increasing demands for connectivity. Such is the case with recent enhancements of the JUPITER™ System, the world’s most widely deployed platform for broadband services over both High-Throughput Satellites (HTS) and conventional satellites. Designed to achieve higher performance and efficiency to better meet the exploding demand for connectivity, the enhancements enable network operators to expand their range of broadband offerings and tap into new markets—from Community Wi-Fi, to cellular backhaul, to aero and maritime connectivity. “The latest enhancements to our JUPITER System again raise the bar for satellite broadband network performance and efficiency,” said Dave Rehbehn, vice president, International Division at Hughes. “Continuous technology investment increases opportunities for our network operators, strengthening their position in the marketplace and solidifying our leadership as the partner of choice.” Designed with the advanced DVB-S2X standard, terminals in the JUPITER family now support 300 Mbps of throughput plus acceleration of 16,000 TCP sessions—ideal for applications with many simultaneous users, whether for fixed cellular backhaul and Community Wi-Fi hotspot solutions, or for mobility services on an airplane or ship. Employing an integrated linear Ka-band radio, the JUPITER System supports both 8PSK and 16APSK higher order modulation schemes, delivering more bits per Hertz, which, combined with reduced spacing of the return channel, yields higher bandwidth efficiency and lower service cost for operators. Additional new features include Layer 2 support, enabling operators to integrate satellite and terrestrial offerings seamlessly, plus support for mobility roaming among JUPITER-equipped operators offering aero and maritime services.
