Hughes Introduces the HN NOCXT Carrier-Grade Broadband Satellite Hub
Optimized for medium- to large-scale satellite broadband networks;
Setting a new standard in flexibility and scalability
GERMANTOWN, Md. -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), today further reinforced its global leadership in broadband satellite solutions and services by introducing a new carrier-grade hub configuration optimized for medium- to large-scale networks. Employing a highly efficient systems architecture, the Hughes HN NOCXT sets a new standard in flexibility and scalability, with numerous features such as guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) levels for bandwidth management and industry-leading acceleration and compression technologies, making it the ideal solution for service providers and enterprises demanding the best for their customers.
Operational on 5 continents and supporting over 1 million broadband terminal sites, the HN System is the most advanced and widely deployed satellite networking infrastructure in the marketplace, and is fully compliant with the IP over Satellite (IPoS) global standard-- the world's first to be approved by TIA, ETSI and ITU. The HN NOCXT is the latest member of the HN family and the ideal choice to deliver high-speed IP services over satellite, supporting an expanding range of multi-media, video, data and voice applications.
"Hughes continues to push the envelope by further developing and optimizing the HN System. As our latest generation hub configuration, the HN NOCXT comes packed with high capacity and advanced features from a single rack, making the roll-out of large-scale satellite broadband networks very cost-effective," said Robert Feierbach, vice president of global sales and marketing, International at Hughes.
HN NOCXT Architecture
The HN NOCXT is designed as a compact and efficient single-rack package that is highly modular and scalable, enabling rapid provision of any mix of satellite broadband services from a single, comprehensive platform. The base configuration of the HN NOCXT can be readily expanded to accommodate multiple 121 Mbps forward channels and over 70 Mbps of return channel traffic, all in a single rack.
"Efficiency and flexibility in utilizing satellite bandwidth are at the core of our HN NOCXT design," said David Jupin, vice president, program management, International, at Hughes. "For example, one or more remote terminals can be selected for guaranteed in-route bandwidth, while the remaining large pool of terminals may share fair access via a truly dynamic bandwidth assignment algorithm; inactive terminals are released from all network resources, which are optimized for use by active terminals only."
The HN NOCXT is the ideal solution to provide a number of services including:
-- Broadband Internet access
-- Private IP networking for corporate intranets
-- Public services including telephony, Internet kiosk, education & government
-- High availability networking
-- Multicast data delivery
-- Multimedia applications including MPEG4 video
-- VoIP services
Fully Compatible with HN Family of Remote Terminals
The HN NOCXT operates with the latest generation of HN broadband satellite terminals, including the powerful HN9200 and HN9400. The HN9400 is a high-performance router with throughput of up to 60 Mbps over the forward channel and with adaptive LDPC coding on the return channel; the entire HN family of satellite terminals and routers is compliant with the global IPoS (IP over Satellite) standard.
The HN NOCXT is available now. For addition information, please contact Hughes at email@example.com.
