Hughes Launches Scalable Private Networking Solution for Small to Mid-Size Businesses

              enterprise-grade solutions at affordable prices

    GERMANTOWN, Md., Aug. 5 /EMWNews/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC

(HUGHES), a leading provider of managed network services and the global

leader in broadband satellite networks and solutions, today announced the

availability of HughesNet Private Networks for small to mid-size businesses

(SMBs). HughesNet Private Networks is a secure and easy-to-deploy solution

that provides private networking for the SMB outside the Internet. The

resulting private network provides an enterprise-grade level of security

and performance, at a price more affordable than terrestrial alternatives,

including competing MPLS and Internet-based VPN solutions.

    With a HughesNet Private Network, SMBs can enable branch-to-branch

communications, directly connecting each of their locations via satellite

for superior performance. This simple and secure connectivity eliminates

the need for an expensive central hub or network operations infrastructure,

as well as landline connections.

    "Security, performance, and cost effectiveness are the somewhat

conflicting watchwords for SMBs looking to connect multiple sites in a

secure network," said Raymond Boggs, vice president of SMB research at IDC.

"Being able to implement a reliable private network will be especially

appealing to SMBs who thought enterprise-grade services were beyond their

reach either due to cost or lack of availability."

    HughesNet Private Networks also provides SMBs with bandwidth-on-demand

for support of bandwidth-intensive applications, such as high-quality video

conferencing. SMBs can enjoy significant cost savings over dedicated

circuits by using bandwidth when and where it is needed, paying either a

low-cost monthly fee or on a usage basis.

    "With HughesNet private networks, SMBs no longer need to assume that

enterprise-grade solutions are too complex," said Sam Baumel, Hughes

assistant vice president. "In fact, the solution is very simple and

easy-to-deploy. It is in use by consumers every day; from paying for gas at

the pump, renting a video from the local video store, to using a bank card

at a fast-food restaurant, HughesNet and satellite technology is relied

upon by business owners daily."

    HughesNet Private Networks bring SMBs the following benefits:

    -- Performance: SMBs enjoy plans that can be upgraded as needed at

speeds up to 2 Mbps upstream and 8 Mbps downstream, as well as the ability

to prioritize applications based on "Class of Service" for optimum


    -- Security: A private network that protects SMBs' data-and their

customers' data, with PCI-compliant architectures.

    -- Savings: SMBs enjoy substantial savings over competing private

network solutions-all from one provider with true nationwide coverage.

    -- Reliability: Enterprise-grade equipment and service for high

reliability, along with 24/7 proactive monitoring and flexible maintenance


    -- Bandwidth-on-demand: SMBs pay only for the bandwidth they use, when

and where they need it, for support of high-quality video applications.

    All this is made possible by SPACEWAY(TM) 3, the world's first

commercial satellite designed with on-board switching and routing.

HughesNet Private Networks is part of a suite of HughesNet business

solutions that are designed to meet the growing needs of SMBs. These

include HughesNet Business Internet for those underserved SMBs who are

either beyond the reach of cable or DSL or where a T-1 line is too costly;

and HughesNet Broadband Backup, which provides a path-diverse, secure

broadband connection via satellite to ensure that critical business

applications keep running even during a landline failure.
