Philippines-based PHSAT has selected Hughes Network Systems’ Jupiter System to enable Internet services for its small- to medium-enterprise (SME) customers.
The company, which provides domestic and international telecommunication services to businesses throughout the Philippines, chose the Jupiter System to improve the efficiency and performance of satellite broadband services to its customer base while laying the foundation for future 4G implementations.
Roy Daantos, Vice President for Operations, PHSAT, said: “The Hughes JUPITER System is helping us achieve connectivity that is vital to us and our fellow Philippine citizens, and we look forward to a successful relationship for many years to come.”
Vaibhav Magow, assistant vice president of Hughes’ International Division, said: “The benefits our service provider customers realise through the Jupiter System ultimately apply to their customers, increasing quality of life through Internet access in schools, workplaces and communities around the globe.”
PHSAT aims to provide Internet service to underserved and unserved areas in the Philippines and increase Internet speed and reliability throughout the nation. The Jupiter system, with terminals capable of 300 Mbps of throughput plus acceleration of 16,000 TCP sessions, will help support PHSAT in achieving those goals.
