Malaysia’s premier satellite communications services company, TS Global Network Sdn Bhd (TSGN) and Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), a broadband satellite solutions and services company, announced that Hughes is providing its JUPITER System for a major technology upgrade of TSGN’s existing C-band satellite network.

Hughes is supplying a JUPITER Gateway and latest generation enterprise-class broadband satellite terminals at over 3,000 locations. The company said that the advanced ground system will facilitate TSGN’s upgrading of its current C-band infrastructure, enabling the company to refresh its technology with minimum disruption to its customers.

“Advanced HUGHES ‘System on a Chip’ (SOC)  technology, which is at the core of the JUPITER System and terminals, enables industry-leading, high-throughput performance of up to 100 Mbps,” said TSGN chief executive officer (CEO) Kent Ho. “We needed a satellite system solution that provided better operational efficiency and throughput performance. JUPITER provides both, and most importantly enables us to manage all of our satellite services through a single system. Its highly scalable infrastructure not only allows TSGN to support tens of thousands of sites, but also will set new standards in broadband performance. This initiative will fast-track our goals in the satellite communications arena and will herald a new standard of performance for TSGN and our clients in Malaysia and the region.”

“Service providers need cost-effective solutions for upgrading their capabilities without necessarily uprooting their network infrastructures,” said Vaibhav Magow, senior director, Asia/Pacific Region at Hughes. “This application shows that the many advantages JUPITER provides for high-throughput satellites (HTS) can also be realized using conventional satellites, and we are excited to partner with TS Global Network to expand their services while keeping overhead expenses under control.”

TS Global Network Sdn Bhd (TSGN), a privately-owned Malaysian company, is a premier satellite communications (SATCOM) services and solutions provider. TSGN said it is Malaysia’s largest VSAT (very small aperture terminal) technology provider, serving more than 150 Malaysian corporates and multi-national companies comprising oil and gas majors, plantation conglomerates, banks, telcos, defense, security, education, and health institutions  throughout Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.
