Mexico Service Provider Pegaso Expands with Hughes HN Broadband Satellite System



Feb. 28, 2012


Hughes Network Systems, LLC  has completed installation of its latest technology HN NOC-XT for Pegaso Banda Ancha (Pegaso Broadband), a leading service provider in Mexico, at Pegaso's new teleport in Toluca. Fulfillment of the contract signed last year also calls for Hughes to deliver Pegaso Broadband over 400 advanced HN broadband satellite terminals.


One of the Pegaso Grupo companies, Pegaso Broadband is an existing customer of Hughes with an operation in Atlanta, Georgia, who decided to upgrade to the latest HN System technology in expanding their service platform and seamlessly migrating their customer base from Atlanta to the new Toluca NOC. Their plan is to eventually move the original hub equipment to Mexico and expand its capacity and capabilities.


"We are very pleased to continue our relationship with Hughes," said Javier Braun Burillo, CEO of Pegaso. "By moving our NOC and operations to Mexico and purchasing the latest in Hughes technology, we are able to provide services in a more cost-effective way, reducing latency and the costs of backhauling traffic."

Pegaso will employ the HN System to provide high-speed Internet, voice (VoIP), and video services to enterprise and consumer markets in Mexico and Central and Latin America (CALA).


"Pegaso is a highly valued and strategically important customer in Mexico," said Nick Marzella, vice president, Latin America, Hughes. "We are proud to build on our seven year relationship and help them expand their service footprint with the many customer-facing and operational benefits of the latest Hughes HN technology."
