What Do We Mean When We Say, “Managed Services?”

Hughes Managed Services

Can you name all the piece parts of your network; what they do or how they work? It’s a bit of a trick question because networking today is so sophisticated and complex. No longer do networks just involve modems, cables and equipment. In addition to physical components, a network is now defined by the protocols it uses to communicate, how it controls traffic, where traffic begins and ends, how the network performs, how it’s secured, where its users are and its purpose.

When Hughes says we deliver “Managed Services,” what we mean is end-to-end services to support all aspects of a network, both as it is defined today – and how it may be defined tomorrow. End-to-end spans everything from design and installation to maintenance and 24/7 field support, plus everything in between. Our Managed Services are segmented by the network’s piece parts, from routers, switches and connectivity to security, Wi-Fi and digital signage. “Managed” refers to the fact that Hughes takes care of it all for you. Soup to nuts, as they say.

Depending on your needs, Hughes Managed Services can be purchased individually, in any combination, or as a comprehensive solution for an entire enterprise network.
