"Since its inception, Hughes has been committed to the Asia/Pacific marketplace and has established an enviable base of customers, as evidenced by the attendees at this seminar," said Robert Feierbach, vice president of global sales and marketing, International Division at Hughes, who was a keynote speaker at the event. "Together, we are bringing high-quality broadband satellite connectivity to businesses, government agencies, schools, and homes across the region, helping to close the digital divide and grow the economy."

Hughes unveiled the HN9400, the newest member of its market-leading family of routers, designed to deliver the maximum performance on today's Ku- or Ka-band platforms, while being future-proof for next-generation, high-throughput systems.

The powerful HN9400 supports up to 60 Mbps of throughput on the forward channel and is fully compliant with IPoS/DVB-S2/ACM, the world's most successful satellite industry standard.
