Nilesat has purchased a Hughes JUPITER™ System Gateway and will use Hughes JUPITER terminals for its Nilesat 301 satellite. The implementation will begin in the second quarter of this year and is expected to be complete by the end of the third quarter.

“The Nilesat vision is to be the role model for satellite services in the MENA region,” said Major General Sameh Katta, chairman and CEO Nilesat. “After careful technical and commercial evaluation, we verified that the Hughes JUPITER System provided the efficiency, reliability, flexibility and high performance needed to help us offer the best service delivery to Nilesat subscribers.”

“The need for internet access is growing in the MENA region, and Hughes is pleased to be working with Nilesat to deliver access to rural areas,” said Vaibhav Magow, vice president, Hughes. “Our JUPITER System is the de facto standard for satellite connectivity, and it will serve Nilesat very well.”
