July 1, 2019 – Hughes Network Systems, LLC announced that its JUPITER™ System has been chosen as the ground network platform for a new satellite over Indonesia. The contract for construction and operation of the 150 Gbps “Multifunctional Satellite” has been awarded by the Government of Indonesia, through its Ministry of Communication and Informatics, to the PSN Consortium led by PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), the first private satellite telecommunication and information service provider in Indonesia. Hughes will provide the ground system to enable broadband satellite connectivity across the island nation. In addition to PSN, the PSN Consortium includes Indonesian companies PT Pintar Nusantara Sejahtera, PT Dian Semesta Sentosa and PT Nusantara Satelit Sejahtera. Utilizing a JUPITER System operating over its Nusantara Satu (PSN VI) High Throughput Satellite, PSN currently delivers broadband services to consumers and enterprises and powers 2,000 Community Wi-Fi Hotspots, providing satellite Internet access to one million Indonesians. Employing the advanced DVB-S2X industry standard, the JUPITER System is becoming the platform of choice by operators globally, delivering high capacity and efficiency for any satellite broadband implementation. A family of terminals can be readily configured for all customer markets – consumer, enterprise and government – and JUPITER System gateways can be scaled to the multi-Gbps capacity requirements of next-generation HTS systems such as the Multifunctional Satellite.
