[Via Satellite 03-04-2015] Hughes Network Systems is providing its high-throughput, Ka-band Jupiter System for a major technology upgrade on Malaysian satellite communications services provider TS Global Network’s (TSGN) existing C-band satellite network. Hughes is supplying a Jupiter Gateway and latest generation enterprise-class broadband satellite terminals at more than 3,000 locations. This advanced ground system will facilitate TSGN’s upgrading of its current C-band infrastructure.

“Service providers need cost-effective solutions for upgrading their capabilities without necessarily uprooting their network infrastructures,” said Vaibhav Magow, senior director of the Asia-Pacific Region at Hughes. “This application shows that the many advantages JUPITER provides for high-throughput satellites (HTS) can also be realized using conventional satellites.”
