Hughes Network Systems, LLC has introduced its next evolution of Jupiter system technology, which includes advanced LTE acceleration to support cellular backhaul requirements for mobile network operators and VSAT service providers as they expand their cellular services into areas without suitable terrestrial backhaul. The Hughes HT2500 terminal is a next-generation satellite terminal that has native support for accelerating LTE protocols. With support for over 7500 simultaneous TCP sessions, the terminal is able to deliver accelerated performance for many devices connected simultaneously to the LTE eNodeB. Speeds of 200 Mbps enable the HT2500 to deliver the LTE performance required by mobile operators around the world.
The company is also introducing the HG220 gateway configuration to cost-effectively address such small networks. The HG220 supports up to five networks over up to five satellites and with extensive QoS, IP features and bandwidth management options, the HG220 gateway and the HT2500 terminal provide an effective solution for satellite cellular backhaul links. The HT2500 and the HG220 utilize the Jupiter System's wideband DVB-S2X forward channel, the most efficient in the industry, with support for 5 percent channel roll off as well as 64APSK modulation.
