Hughes, Lemko Demonstrate Satellite Backhaul 4G-LTE Service

[Satellite TODAY 06-29-12] Hughes Network Systems has successfully demonstrated wireless 4G-LTE transmissions over satellite backhaul at download speeds of over 10 Mbps and upload speeds of 786 Kbps, including video calls, the company announced June 28.

   Hughes said the test involved a combination of its Jupiter high-throughput satellite modem technology with Lemko Corp.’s Distributed Mobility Wireless Network (DiMoWiNe).
“The growing need for the dissemination of real-time video to our warfighters requires the combination of wireless 4G-LTE and high-throughput satellite backhaul," Hughes Vice President and General Manager of Defense and Intelligence Systems Rick
   Lober said in a statement. “The unique combination of these technologies eliminates the latency issues that can disrupt LTE traffic backhauled over conventional satellite links.”
