2012 was a good year for Hughes Network Systems, LLC. The Company delivered more than 487,000 broadband satellite communications terminals that year for a total of more than 3.3 million terminals shipped worldwide.
Hughes extends an ever-increasing portfolio of broadband networking solutions at the behest of governments, multi-national organizations, and enterprises of all sizes across all vertical sectors.
The latest addition to its offerings is the HughesNet Gen4 broadband Internet on satellite service. Launched on October 2012 and leveraging the JUPITER high throughput technology of the EchoStar XVII Ka-band satellite, the new-generation HughesNet Gen 4 satellite broadband solution spurred the growth of its consumer high-speed satellite Internet service in North America. During the fourth quarter of 2012, Hughes shipped more than 200,000 HT satellite terminals.
According to Pradman Kaul, president of Hughes, the company considers each of the 3.3 million terminals it had delivered since 1986 to be the proof that the Company's customers depended upon the Company's solutions to accomplish their satellite communications requirements.
