Hughes Network Systems LLC (HUGH) has signed Broad Sky Networks as an authorized reseller of HughesNet broadband satellite business solutions in the United States. Broad Sky resells business-class satellite Internet communications services in North America to enterprises, retailers and telecommuters.
“Becoming a HughesNet reseller was a natural fit for Broad Sky,” said Mike Mudd, president of Broad Sky Networks. “HughesNet Business Solutions allows us to offer a best-of-breed service that will grow as our customers grow. The innovative technology behind HughesNet enables us to enter new verticals and bring the newest technology to the business market.”
The channel partner program for HughesNet Business Solutions gives resellers access to the full range of HughesNet satellite broadband services, including high-speed Internet access and private networking.
HughesNet Business Solutions addresses the need for both primary and backup broadband services. As a primary service, HughesNet gives companies operating in rural areas access to cost-effective broadband via satellite where DSL is not available and T1 access is prohibitively expensive. And for those businesses that have terrestrial broadband access as their primary connectivity, HughesNet offers a disaster recovery solution in the event their landline connection fails. Now, business customers purchasing solutions from Broad Sky will have access to these high-speed data services throughout the United States using HughesNet.
“Hughes understands the important role that the resellers play and we are eager to work with Broad Sky Networks to demonstrate the unique value proposition and differentiators of HughesNet satellite services,” said Sam Baumel, Hughes assistant vice president of channel sales.
