[Via Satellite 03-10-2015] Russian integrator Ka-Internet has delivered a Hughes Jupiter System to the Russian Satellite Communication Company (RSCC). RSCC will use the system as its platform for high-performance satellite broadband services in Siberia and the Far East.
Ka-Internet installed a Jupiter Gateway at the Russian operator’s Satellite Communications Center (SCC) in Khabarovsk, and a Network Management System (NMS) at the SCC in Dubna, Moscow Region. Jupiter will operate over the Ka-band capacity of the Russian Express AM5 satellite, launched and added to RSCC’s constellation in 2014. The satellite will begin delivering services to the market on a Virtual Network Operator (VNO) model starting early in the second quarter of this year.
“Connecting people in Siberia and Russia’s Far East to the worldwide Web is an important economic and social imperative,” said Konstantin Lanin, head of Hughes’ Russia office.
