Press Release

Germantown, Md., January 10, 2010―Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, and a leading provider of managed network and application services, today launched its managed Voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution for the distributed enterprise. Using the new Hughes ActiveQoS™ technology, Hughes can provide superior voice quality over affordable broadband, eliminating the need for customers to invest in expensive leased line MPLS networks.

ActiveQoS Ensures High Quality Voice

Hughes ActiveQoS technology is integrated into the Hughes customer premise equipment and actively monitors and adapts to network congestion over the broadband network. Hughes ActiveQoS incorporates several innovative optimization methods, including traffic metering, network change adaptation, and traffic prioritization, to ensure that real-time, latency sensitive applications, such as voice, are prioritized on an end-to-end basis. As a result, users enjoy a high-quality voice experience with minimal packet loss and jitter.

“Businesses with many distributed branches, such as retail and restaurant chains, have often been unable to justify deploying a managed VoIP solution,” said Mike Tippets, vice president, Hughes Solutions Group. “The benefits of converging voice and data are well known, and now enterprise customers can reap those benefits to reduce operational costs.”

Large distributed enterprises typically have had to deal with dozens of local service providers to meet the voice and data needs at their branch locations. Hughes enables them to consolidate all their voice and data requirements nationwide under a single managed services provider employing the most cost-effective mix of broadband network transport technologies. The Hughes VoIP solution includes both hosted VoIP, as well as SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) trunking services, and offers full number portability.

“Our distributed enterprise customers can now take advantage of a full-full featured VoIP solution that improves employee efficiency and provides a better customer experience, while simultaneously lowering infrastructure costs. I call that a win-win-win,” said Tippets.

Hughes VoIP with ActiveQoS is available now. Hughes is exhibiting at the National Retail Federation 2011 annual show, January 10 – 12 at the Javits Convention Center, New York, NY, exhibit booth #2717. The Hughes VoIP solution will be on display as part of “The Store of the Future” powered by Hughes exhibit.
