Hughes Network Systems, LLC new electronically steerable antenna-based (ESA) terminal – Hughes HL1120W Terminal - has received Eutelsat OneWeb approval for operation in its low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite network.

This milestone enables Hughes to bring Eutelsat OneWeb’s enterprise-grade, low-latency, high-speed connectivity to customers across the globe.

“Using our decades of experience with low Earth orbit systems and our detailed understanding of the Eutelsat OneWeb system, we are delivering a high-performance connectivity solution that brings reliable, enterprise-grade LEO connectivity to remote locations,” said Dan Rasmussen, senior vice president and general manager, North America Enterprise Division, Hughes. “Our Managed LEO service currently supports customers in the military, government agencies and public safety communities as well as retailers and energy companies. This technology is a game changer, and we are proud to be working closely with Eutelsat OneWeb to bring our solution to the broader market.”

The HL1120W is designed for the outdoor environment. It is lightweight, low-power, weather-tight and easy to install and maintain. It is constructed with a durable aluminium chassis and is configured to function right out of the box with self-pointing to the Eutelsat OneWeb satellite constellation. The HL1120W includes an indoor unit, which provides a WiFi 6 router and 2 GigE LAN ports.

For low-latency applications and service in hard-to-reach places, the Hughes Managed LEO service provides a reliable, high-speed option. As a OneWeb distributor, Hughes can deploy LEO capacity as a managed broadband service, a multi-orbit mobility or enterprise solution, or part of a multi-transport Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) or highly specialised military network.
