PSN of Indonesia has selected Hughes Network Systems, LLC’s JUPITER system to enable Broadband Services throughout Indonesia, it was announced in Singapore on 27 June. It will operate over the PSN VI High-Throughput satellite.

Hughes, the global leader in broadband satellite networks and services, has been selected by PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), the oldest private telecommunication and information service provider in Indonesia, to provide the JUPITER™ system for broadband services. (Nusnatara means in between the archipelago or across the archipelago). The comprehensive Hughes solution includes HG240 Gateways, a variety of remote terminals, and a central network management system, enabling PSN to deliver satellite broadband services to consumers and businesses across Indonesia.

The JUPITER system features enhanced networking capabilities and supports speeds up to 300 Mbps to an individual terminal. Powering HughesNet™, the number-one satellite Internet service in the world, with 1.2 million subscribers, the JUPITER System is an ideal solution to support the high-growth potential of the PSN broadband offering. It incorporates a central network management system for efficient bandwidth allocation across multiple beams, and operational control of remote terminals. 

“PSN required a robust and scalable ground architecture to support the volume of users and traffic that we expect to serve with PSN VI,” said Adi Rahman Adiwoso, Chief Executive Officer at PSN. “Thanks to our long-standing relationship with Hughes and the proven capabilities of the JUPITER System, we look forward to serving the growing data needs of customers in all corners of Indonesia.”
