Hughes Certified as Gilbarco Managed Network Services Provider


Hughes solution provides retail petroleum customers with an authorized alternative to the Gilbarco Secure Zone Router

Germantown, MD, May 21, 2019 Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), a leading provider of managed network services under its HughesON™ brand, has earned certification as a Gilbarco Managed Network Service Provider (MNSP). The certification authorizes the HughesON Managed SD-WAN solution using the HR4860 secure SD-WAN gateway or Fortigate router technology as an alternative to the Gilbarco Secure Zone router, providing a secure, PCI-compliant solution compatible with the Gilbarco Passport® Point of Sale system employed by leading retail petroleum customers.

“More than ever, retail petroleum customers rely on their networks to provide application assurance,” said Dan Rasmussen, senior vice president of North America sales and marketing, Hughes. “With this certification, customers on the Gilbarco Passport system can confidently choose Hughes industry-leading SD-WAN technologies to meet the need for high performance, next-generation security and scalability to deploy new services, mobility and partner applications.”

HughesON Managed Network Service offerings cover a range of solutions from self-install to fully turnkey with connectivity, installation, provisioning and on-site support. The HR4860 and Fortigate routers feature Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP), which dramatically simplifies deployment and installation, allowing the platform to be provisioned and configured automatically, eliminating the need for manual configuration by an onsite technician. The HR4860 leverages Hughes ActiveTechnologies™, an innovative software suite that delivers automated Quality of Service (QoS) and traffic shaping that adapt to real-time broadband circuit performance, eliminating blackouts and brownouts using automatic path selection and identifying and prioritizing critical applications based on data packet behavior. HR gateway settings refine continuously based on application and network performance, making the HR4860 ideal for providing QoS on broadband networks.

As alternatives to the Gilbarco Secure Zone Router, certified HughesON SD-WAN solutions using the HR4860 or Fortigate router technology can seamlessly manage the “Gilbarco zone” in place of the current routing device.
