Hughes Communications India, Limited (‘Hughes India’), a majority-owned subsidiary of Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, today announced that Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), India’s largest producer of crude oil and natural gas, has selected the Hughes JUPITERTM System to revamp and upgrade its existing satellite network across India.  

Hughes India will implement the JUPITER System to augment its existing C‐Band Network with the latest HTS (High-throughput satellite) technology, delivering reliable multi‐service data, voice, and video traffic with high spectral efficiency across nearly 200 offshore and onshore oil and gas platforms, drilling rigs and vessels, including enterprise managed services in locations spread across the country.

The new setup will upgrade ONGC’s existing ICNET and MFTDMA networks to a state-of-the-art architecture employing four JUPITER gateways, SCPC carrier-grade modems and several large antenna and RF systems. Valued at over INR 45 crore (US$ 6.7 mn) the project will be carried out on a turnkey basis and will include new network installations, upgrades and network transition across 94 fixed sites and 112 nomadic sites with comprehensive maintenance for two years.

Partho Banerjee, Director, Hughes India said, “We are very proud to have been awarded this important project by ONGC, amid a tough competitive tender scenario. It validates the compelling benefits of high-performance, enterprise-class broadband delivered by our JUPITER System and is an endorsement of the wide range of system integration experience Hughes India has in implementing large turnkey networks.”
