PSN (PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara) has selected Hughes Network Systems to provide its JUPITER System for broadband services over the PSN VI High-Throughput Satellite (HTS).
The comprehensive Hughes solution includes HG240 Gateways, a variety of remote terminals, and a central network management system, enabling PSN to deliver satellite broadband services to consumers and businesses across Indonesia.
The JUPITER System features enhanced networking capabilities and supports speeds up to 300 Mbps to an individual terminal. Powering HughesNet, the number-one satellite Internet service in the world with 1.2 million subscribers, the JUPITER System is an ideal solution to support the high-growth potential of the PSN broadband offering. It incorporates a central network management system for efficient bandwidth allocation across multiple beams and operational control of remote terminals.
“PSN required a robust and scalable ground architecture to support the volume of users and traffic that we expect to serve with PSN VI,” said Adi Rahman Adiwoso, Chief Executive Officer at PSN.
In 2017, Internet user penetration in Indonesia was only 39.7%, leaving approximately six million Indonesia households without Internet connectivity. With its PSN IV and the JUPITER system, PSN will deliver high-speed Internet access, including Wi-Fi hotspots, helping bridge the digital divide in Indonesia, reaching unconnected households and businesses throughout the region.
