Germantown, Md., December 18, 2012—Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the world’s leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, and a leading provider of managed network services announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Hughes's business VoIP service a 2012 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year.
Hughes Enterprise VoIP is a fully-managed, full-featured voice solution designed for the distributed enterprise market.

“It is with pleasure that we recognize Hughes with a Product of the Year Award. The editors of INTERNET TELEPHONY have verified that Hughes Enterprise VoIP displays quality and innovation while providing solutions to real business communications challenges,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I would like to congratulate the team at Hughes for their commitment to advancing IP communication technologies.
Hughes Enterprise VoIP employs the innovative Hughes ActiveQoS™ technology to ensure proper treatment of voice packets on an end-to-end basis. This patent pending technology monitors the network capacity in real-time and applies dynamic rate limiting and prioritization to control packet loss and jitter, resulting in high-quality voice calls.
“We are honored that our Enterprise VoIP product has been recognized for this industry innovation award,” said Sampath Ramaswami, senior director of Strategic Planning at Hughes. “With its extensive business features and unique ActiveQoS technology, Hughes Enterprise VoIP enables distributed enterprises to enjoy consistent high-quality voice over cost-effective broadband. Now distributed enterprises can consolidate their nationwide voice and data requirements—under a single, trusted managed services provider.”
