IG Telecom chooses Hughes HN broadband satellite solution

Nov 19, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC, a provider of broadband satellite networks and services, has announced that internet service provider IG Telecom has chosen the Hughes HN broadband satellite solution to expand its services throughout the Central African nation and surrounding countries.

IG Telecom will employ the Hughes HN System, comprising a network operations center (NOC) and up to 2,000 HN9260 routers, to expand high-speed satellite Internet and VoIP service to homes and small-to-medium business (SMBs) in under-served areas of Gabon and neighboring countries.

In addition, Hughes customized the antenna solution to include a dual LNB, which enables IG Telecom to deliver a triple play offering including the French direct-to-home (DTH) television service Canal +.

"We are proud that IG Telecom selected Hughes technology, and especially to provide this exciting triple play offering," said Kannan Soupramanien, regional sales director for French-speaking Africa at Hughes. "The HN System is widely deployed globally, and powers the world's largest high-speed Internet service, with over 620,000 HughesNet subscribers in the US. We are confident that IG Telecom will experience great success with this system."
