The HN System is the Hughes flagship product line for large-scale Internet satellite broadband networks.
The HN System consists of the HN NOC (or hub) and the HN remote terminals and appliances, and runs over C-, Ku- or Ka-Band satellite capacity. The core of the HN System is the HN NOC, which provides high-speed transmission of IP packets to and from the remote terminals. Based on DVB-S/S2 and IPoS standards, the HN System consists of baseband processing equipment, IF subsystem, control subsystem and network management system.
The HN NOC performs the following major functions:
Provides highly secure and efficient IP transport for data or real-time applications such as video or voice
Provides optimum performance by efficiently managing bandwidth using intelligent, protocol-sensitive bandwidth assignment algorithms
Provides an easily manageable system with a comprehensive and completely self-sufficient Network Management System (NMS) used to configure and manage all components of the HN system
Provides for high availability by incorporating active redundancies into all the critical components of the NOC, including auto switchover and fault isolation
Offers a high degree of system interoperability due to easy integration of external platforms
The System supports a full range of remote equipment supporting a variety of user applications. The remote equipment in the Hughes systems comprises remote terminals and optional appliances, such as voice appliances and serial appliances. Every Hughes terminal and appliance is operating system agnostic and as such supports Windows®, Apple®, Macintosh®, Unix®, and other platforms running IP over Ethernet.
