HughesNet Ku-Band platform

HughesNet Ku Band V-Sat SystemHughesNet's Ku-Band platform offers high-speed Internet via satellite in locations not covered by HughesNet's Ka-Band platform (Spaceway). The HN7000S is the latest satellite router for the Ku-Band platform. The HN7000S is a high-performance satellite router designed to provide high-speed access for the consumer, small office/home office, and enterprise markets. Designed to provide both versatility and performance, the HN7000S provides unsurpassed performance for even the most bandwidth-intensive applications.

The HN7000S uses advanced DVB-S2 ACM technology. Supporting Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) on the outbound channel means that operators can gain significant bandwidth efficiencies and provide high availability services to the end user.

The HN7000S can be easily configured to support a wide range of downstream data rates, symbol, and FEC coding rates. The HN7000S provides an integrated broadband LAN solution to Windows®, UNIX®, Mac®, and other platforms running IP over Ethernet.

The HN7000S receives and transmits data over the satellite via the Hughes HN Network Operations Center (NOC). TCP connections can be initiated to or from hosts at remote locations. Security is assured through DES encryption and integrated conditional access. In addition, all user intranet communications can be isolated from other enterprise intranets and from remote terminals accessing the “public” Internet operating in the same network.

The HN7000S broadband satellite router passes IP data packets to and from any IP device on the LAN and has much of the functionality of an IP router. The HN7000S incorporates Hughes’ advanced Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP) feature, which increases throughput performance and maximizes the user’s experience and satisfaction.

The HN7000S also supports Hughes’ TurboPage® feature, providing HTTP acceleration for lightning fast browser performance. The HN7000S supports advanced Quality of Service features to ensure that customers get the priority and bandwidth they require.
