Bentley Walker Buys Hughes European Satellite System
Bentley Walker, a U.K.-based satellite solutions provider, has purchased an HX System Network Operations Center as a compact satellite solution for smaller networks, Hughes Networks Systems announced July 23.
The HX System’s bandwidth management features provide operators the ability to efficiently allocate satellite bandwidth as a “virtual pool.” If a customer or group of terminals is not fully using their allocated bandwidth, the HX System reallocates this bandwidth to others.
Bentley Walker will begin offering customers in the Middle East and Europe services in late July from Bentley Walker’s Turin Skylogic teleport, where the system will operate over the Eutelsat W3A satellite. It will be the first deployment of the HX system in Western Europe, Hughes said.
“This is a significant investment on our part and will put us at the front of this industry in Europe and the Middle East,” Anthony Walker, CEO of Bentley Walker, said in a statement.
