A wide area network (WAN) solution developed by Hughes Network Systems reportedly delivers MPLS-like network quality and performance over broadband IP networks.

Aimed in part at the hospitality industry, the solution is made up of the Hughes HS1200 Broadband Optimization Appliance, a data-center gateway, and a management system. It supports end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) over broadband, including DSL and cable, and it enables large distributed enterprises to deploy Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video and real-time data applications at their many branch sites.

“The HS1200 is a key new component of the Hughes Converged Broadband Architecture (CBA), which delivers strong QoS, scalable bandwidth, security and high reliability at a price point much lower than MPLS solutions,” the company adds.

The HS1200, available sometime during the third quarter, includes:

>> The Hughes ActiveQoS that provides network capacity monitoring, prioritization and dynamic rate limiting;
>> The two-stage Hughes ActiveCompression technology for long- and short-range compression with dynamic real-time selection of the optimal algorithm; and
>> A smart-application classification mechanism that analyzes and classifies source IP flows automatically.
