Virtual network operators (VNOs) and service providers that want to sell high-bandwidth Internet and private network access to customers without having to pay high upfront costs may want to take a look at Hughes High QoS Service, a new offering from satellite provider Hughes Network Systems.

>> Provisioning and installation that includes auto-cross pol and auto-commissioning, which helps eliminate phone calls and saves service providers time and money on each install;
>> A range of high-speed service plans, with download speeds up to 10 Mbps; and
>> Built-in WAN acceleration. improving customers’ performance and broadband experience.
The service is available immediately in three access options:
>> Internet access circuits designed for customers with as few as one site;
>> Individual circuits aggregated into a dedicated network providing customers with enhanced management and control capabilities; or
>> Dedicated bandwidth access for customers requiring the highest level of customization.
