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.

The Hughes High QoS Service is a turnkey, bundled package of hardware, software and network hub capacity that operates out of Hughes teleport facilities; it’s available across a North and South American footprint based on three Ku-band satellite beams.

Here’s what Hughes High QoS offers:

>> Ubiquitous connectivity provided by three Ku-band satellites that cover customers from Alaska to Newfoundland to southern Argentina;
>> 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.
