State Contracts Offer Government Agencies a Streamlined Process to Connect Citizens

State municipal building

As the Brookings Institute points out, state and local governments make important investment decisions about infrastructure, education, and many other areas that affect our daily lives and the entire economy. One of the more critical investments state governments make are those related to digital infrastructure.

With more than 50 years as a leading innovator in satellite and multi-transport technologies and networks, Hughes helps government agencies of all sizes do more for constituents and employees through digital signage, SD-WAN, broadband connectivity and managed network services solutions. We’re proud to be a vendor of choice on state-based contracts for one-fifth of the United States and counting.

Our growing portfolio of state government customers includes a wide range of solutions to help states adopt new technologies, optimize application performance, and get their network services and connectivity needs met. Here are just a few examples of how we help state agencies in their day-to-day activities:

  • Distributed agencies with multiple sites – such as parks departments, or library and university systems --  implement managed SD-WAN solutions that can be tailored to each location’s infrastructure
  • Single sites outside the reach of cable of fiber – such as fire stations and municipal offices – rely on Hughesnet for Government to achieve reliable, high-speed broadband connectivity
  • Digital signage solutions at motor vehicle offices display dynamic, up-to-the minute information for constituents on a site-by-site basis, with scheduling and updating done via cloud-based content management system
  • Departments of natural resources and first responders rely on secure satellite broadband for primary connectivity, as well as transportable communications hubs to provide voice and data in the field
  • A full suite of managed network services allow government agencies to focus on serving constituents while the Hughes team of experts manages all networking needs

In addition to serving local governments through state-specific contract vehicles, Hughes is the first and only satellite broadband provider on the NASPO ValuePoint contract, offering service coast-to-coast. Hughes is also an authorized provider of high-speed broadband access to schools, libraries, and rural health care providers under the E-rate program.

Across the country, government agencies depend on their networks to meet constituent needs – whether for cloud-based applications, accessing public records or connecting remote sites via broadband. Hughes is here to help state agencies of all sizes secure the right connections to enable reliable government operations for employees and citizens.
