Hughes Network Systems LLC has announced the availability of HughesNet Broadband Backup service plans, the newest offerings for SMBs that provide automatic satellite backup in the event of a landline failure. HughesNet Broadband Backup services are available directly from Hughes and through its nationwide network of authorized resellers.
With HughesNet Broadband Backup, SMBs can be secure in knowing their critical applications will remain online in the event of a landline failure, protecting them against loss of data or revenue.
Two types of HughesNet Broadband Backup plans are available, depending on the type of primary landline service — Internet access or private network. For Internet-based backup, data rates are up to 1mbps/uplink and up to 5mbps/downlink; for private network-based backup, data rates are up to 2mbps/uplink and up to 8mbps/downlink. HughesNet Broadband Backup services can also be configured to offload network traffic in a load-balancing configuration, thereby alleviating network congestion and postponing upgrades. In addition, a number of field maintenance options are available including same-day service.
HughesNet Broadband Backup service plans are made possible by the advanced satellite technology of SPACEWAY 3. Optimized for data networking, SPACEWAY 3 has five-to-eight times the capacity of current generation satellites, which fuels faster speeds and enables efficient processing of high-volume traffic, the company said.
