Hughes Communications India, Ltd. (HCIL) was selected by NIIT Technologies to connect police stations across the heavily forested state of Jharkhand in eastern India under the mission-mode Crime and Criminal Tracking Network System (CCTNS) project. CCTNS is part of India’s National e-Governance Plan, one of India’s largest e-governance initiatives. The project will link the State and National Crime Records Bureaus, creating a central records database that can be accessed in real time from any police station across the country, greatly enhancing police efficiency in the detection and prevention of crimes. HCIL will provision the network with the assistance of a service provider (engaged centrally by MHA/ NCRB), providing multicast and unicast satellite IP connectivity to 400 locations across the state using high-performance Hughes broadband satellite terminals.
Hughes Europe has been awarded a contract by Emtele, a specialist value-added reseller in global machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions for remote monitoring, to supply high-availability satellite connectivity services as part of a ten-year Smart Grid project for Finnish energy giant, Elenia. At the heart of the solution is Emtele’s broadband FieldCom® network service, which utilizes the Hughes HN System platform and related satellite services for nationwide coverage, providing high-availability connectivity to all electric distribution substations that are without access to reliable terrestrial networks. The communication network will enable Elenia to remotely monitor more than a thousand unmanned energy substations and other sites throughout Finland for the purposes of electric distribution remote management, including both security and maintenance.
Hughes Europe and Bentley Walker will launch Ka-band communications services into the Middle East over the Avanti Hylas 2 satellite, opening up significant new satellite capacity in the region. As part of the new agreement, which builds on the companies’ long-standing relationship, Bentley Walker has purchased three additional Gateway NOCs from Hughes, including two of the latest HX System 4.0s. This will enable local VNOs (virtual network operators) to be set up and will augment Bentley Walker’s existing Ku-band broadband offering to U.S. military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan for morale, welfare, and recreation (MWR) purposes. Existing users will be able to benefit from an easy upgrade path to the new Ka-band service, which offers higher throughput speeds at a lower cost using a smaller dish. This landmark deal with Bentley Walker will provide enhanced services to soldiers in the field who need reliable and secure communications to stay in touch with family and friends.
