July 18, 2023 – Hughes Network Systems announced that Africa Mobile Networks (AMN), which delivers services for the biggest Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in Africa, has selected the Hughes JUPITER™ System ground platform to backhaul 2G, 3G and 4G cellular network traffic in Madagascar and Nigeria. AMN will deploy Hughes JUPITER gateways and remote terminals to connect several hundred cellular towers via satellite, enabling its operator customers to reach more subscribers in hard-to-reach areas and help bridge the digital divide in the region. The de facto standard for satellite implementations worldwide, the Hughes JUPITER System persists as the leading ground platform across the industry, meeting operator requirements with bandwidth and cost efficiencies, especially when compared with other satellite ground systems. The latest JUPITER technology incorporates software-defined satellite networking, dynamic inroute reconfiguration for the highest possible efficiency, and a new “system on a chip” in every user terminal that can support increasingly high speeds and a variety of services.
