Hughes launches new Ka-band routers

by Staff Reporter | March 16th, 2013

Hughes Network Systems, LLC (Hughes), has announced the availability of two new Ka-band satellite routers―the HN9600 and HN9800.

These Ka-band routers reportedly incorporate the same Jupiter technology that is the cornerstone for HughesNet Gen4 satellite internet service in the U.S with a reported 659,000 subscribers (YE2012). The first two international service providers to offer the new routers are Avanti Communications on its Hylas 1 and 2 satellites over Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and Yahsat, on its Yahclick service in the Middle East, Africa and SW Asia.

“Jupiter high-throughput technology has exceeded expectations in powering growth of our new HughesNet Gen4 service launched last October—bringing faster speeds, greater capacity, and a richer network experience to our North American customers,” said Pradman Kaul, President of Hughes.

According to an official release, the products feature a compact, integrated external radio unit with a single IFL cable for easy and rapid installation. Both the HN9600 and HN9800 reportedly support the most bandwidth-demanding services offered on the latest generation of Ka-band satellites. The new routers are fully compliant, the company claims, with the industry-leading IPoS/DVB-S2 standard for optimised delivery of broadband services over satellite channels.
