Cellular Backhaul to Reach Anywhere

elevate your expectations

Expand coverage and open new opportunities with Hughes Satellite Cellular Backhaul.

Wireless communication devices have become an integral part of people’s daily lives, both personal and business, with positive growth occurring in every corner of the world. Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are constantly looking for ways to increase coverage and reduce costs to meet this demand. Yet there remain many millions unreached that live and work in ex-urban, rural and remote areas where unavailability or the high cost of terrestrial backhaul has been a barrier to Mobile coverage expansion. Until now.

The market leading JUPITER System is a high-performance, field-proven satellite networking solution to backhaul all generations of cellular technologies—including 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE—and is cost-effective in areas that are impossible or prohibitively expensive to reach using traditional terrestrial means, such as fiber, cable or microwave.

The Hughes JUPITER System can be rapidly deployed virtually anywhere in the world and provides the industry-leading latency and jitter specifications. It is the clear choice for interconnecting cellular base stations in rural and hard-to-reach areas, and additionally can be implemented as a backup to urban terrestrial links or to rural sites with multiple microwave hops. Such a combined terrestrial and satellite backhaul architecture yields the highest possible network availability by virtue of two alternate path technologies—with the satellite path being more robust when disaster strikes and with quicker service restoral in the aftermath.


Why Hughes Should Be Your First Choice for Your Next Market

Hughes' Cellular Backhaul Experience

Over the last decade Hughes has helped MNOs connect their cellular networks on three generations of satellite platforms: HN, HX, and JUPITER.  These satellite platforms have made possible the interconnection of RANs from the leading mobile industry suppliers; One of the largest cellular backhaul deployments is in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where more than 1,000 satellite connected sites have brought the benefits of wireless communications to more and more communities in that country.

Building on the JUPITER System, Hughes is stands ready to help MNOs bring the power of broadband wireless using 4G/LTE to ever increasing parts of the world.
