The SPACEWAY 3 system was designed and developed by Hughes as a next-generation, Ka-band broadband satellite system, the world’s first to employ on-board traffic switching and routing capability. SPACEWAY 3 was successfully launched in August, 2007 and is used to deliver a wide range of HughesNet broadband IP services to enterprise, government, and consumer/small business customers in North America. Combined with many other advances in satellite technology, such as 10 Gbps overall capacity, fast packet switching, and spot beam forming, the SPACEWAY 3 satellite ushered in a new world of bandwidth-on-demand satellite services, with true peer-to-peer, single-hop networking of high-performance ground terminals.
