Hughes Network Systems announced that its JUPITER System platform has been selected by five service providers to help bridge the digital divide across Indonesia.

The service providers – including Lintasarta,  Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), Teleglobal and Telkom/TelkomSat – won the tender bids from BAKTI, a division of the Indonesian Ministry of Communications and Information, to deploy 8,000 cellular backhaul and Internet access sites using over 7 GHz of satellite capacity across multiple satellites.

Each service provider independently chose the JUPITER System as part of its winning solution to extend cellular services to Indonesians in areas outside the reach of terrestrial (fiber or microwave) networks and to connect government offices and community centers to the Internet.

Highes said its latest JUPITER technology incorporates Layer 2 functionality to seamlessly integrate high traffic terrestrial and satellite traffic— supporting the acceleration of 16,000 TCP sessions – an essential feature for applications with many simultaneous users, such as cellular backhaul.
