Hughes Introduces VoIP Enterprise Broadband Service
[Satellite TODAY 01-12-11] Hughes Network Systems has launched its managed Voice-over-IP (VoIP) solution for the distributed enterprise market, the company announced Jan. 11.
The service aims to eliminate the need for customers to invest in leased-line MPLS networks by providing high-quality voice and broadband using Hughes’ ActiveQoS technology.
The ActiveQoS technology integrates into Hughes’ customer premise equipment monitor and adapts to network congestion over the broadband network. The offering incorporates traffic metering, network change adaptation and traffic prioritization for real-time, latency-sensitive applications.
“Businesses with many distributed branches, such as retail and restaurant chains, have often been unable to justify deploying a managed VoIP solution. The benefits of converging voice and data are well known, and now enterprise customers can reap those benefits to reduce operational costs,” Hughes Solutions Group Vice President Mike Tippets said in a statement.
