Germantown MD (SPX) Jan 29, 2009
Hughes Network Systems has announced that it has been selected by SPTI-Boldt Group Argentina, a major telecommunications service provider, to supply its advanced HN broadband satellite system hub plus HN7700S and HNS7740S broadband routers to support a variety of SPTI-Boldt's customers in Argentina.

SPTI-Boldt will use the HN system to provide broadband IP services for lottery, government and corporate programs in Argentina.

Fully compliant with the IPoS/ DVB-S2 standard, including ACM (Adaptive Coding and Modulation), the HN is the world's most field-proven broadband satellite platform, supporting a wide range of bandwidth-intensive applications including VoIP, high-speed Internet access, interactive distance learning, video conferencing, and multimedia streaming.

Hughes was the first company to implement the IPoS/DVB-S2 standard with ACM, the most bandwidth efficient implementation available, which yields up to 50 percent greater throughput over the original standard.

"We are very excited about this agreement," said Carlos Biderman, general manager of SPTI-Boldt Group Argentina.

"We were looking for much more than just the latest broadband satellite technology. We wanted to do business with a company that shared our vision, who had solutions that met our current needs, who was innovative, and who exhibited leadership in the development of new technology. We found all these qualities in Hughes."

Continued Biderman, "The Hughes solution is state-of-the-art, allowing us to develop new applications and customers, and at the same time, provide higher quality Service to our X.25 legacy customers."

"We are very proud to have been chosen to provide our proven DVB-S2/ACM technology to the SPTI-Boldt Group, marking the beginning of a mutually beneficial relationship," said Nick Marzella, vice president of the Central America and Latin America group (CALA) at Hughes.

"Our HN system enables SPTI-Boldt Group to offer an expanding range of broadband IP services along with legacy X.25 applications throughout Argentina, employing the most cost-effective satellite platform in the marketplace."
