Hughes Network Systems has been selected by PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), the telecommunication and information service provider in Indonesia, to provide the JUPITER System for broadband services over the PSN VI High-Throughput Satellite (HTS).
The comprehensive Hughes solution includes HG240 Gateways, a variety of remote terminals, and a central network management system, enabling PSN to deliver satellite broadband services to consumers and businesses across Indonesia.
The JUPITER System features networking capabilities and supports speeds up to 300 Mbps to an individual terminal. The JUPITER System incorporates a central network management system for efficient bandwidth allocation across multiple beams and operational control of remote terminals.
Adi Rahman Adiwoso, Chief Executive Officer at PSN, said: “PSN required a robust and scalable ground architecture to support the volume of users and traffic that we expect to serve with PSN VI.
“Thanks to our long-standing relationship with Hughes and the proven capabilities of the JUPITER System, we look forward to serving the growing data needs of customers in all corners of Indonesia.”
In 2017, Internet user penetration in Indonesia was only 39.7 percent, leaving approximately six million Indonesia households without Internet connectivity. With its PSN IV and the JUPITER system, PSN will deliver high-speed Internet access, including Wi-Fi hotspots, helping bridge the digital divide in Indonesia, reaching unconnected households and businesses throughout the region, said the company.
Ramesh Ramaswamy, Senior Vice President and General Manager, International Division at Hughes, said: “The features, performance and efficiency of our Hughes JUPITER System set us apart. We are delighted to offer a high level of reliability and scalability to PSN in support of their effort to bring satellite broadband to their customers and to help close the digital divide across Indonesia.”
