Aris Iskandar Musa, head of Product Development/Solutions & Sales at Numix Engineering Sdn Bhd, a leading telecommunications and network services company in Malaysia, presented an overview of its satellite-related solutions which include Internet and telephony, customized private networks, and back up and maritime solutions.
"Numix has been working with Hughes for the past three years, operating both HN and HX Systems," said Musa. "We chose Hughes as a partner for several reasons including the cost-effective and bandwidth efficient solutions Hughes provides. In addition, due to the ACM (Adaptive Coding Modulation) feature of Hughes technology, we are able to operate very high availability networks. We also were very interested in the support for mobility on both the HN and HX Systems."
Hughes continues to remain the undisputed leader in the global VSAT market, consistently holding more than 50 percent market share according to the latest COMSYS VSAT report.
