Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), an EchoStar company (Nasdaq: SATS), today announced the commercial availability of the Hughes HL1120W Terminal. This electronically steerable antenna-based (ESA) terminal has received Eutelsat OneWeb approval for operation in its low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite network and this milestone enables Hughes to bring Eutelsat OneWeb's enterprise-grade, low-latency, high-speed connectivity to customers across the globe. As an early pioneer in LEO technologies, Hughes developed the gateway and core modem module for all OneWeb terminals and is continuing its engineering leadership with this groundbreaking, flat panel ESA. 

The HL1120W is designed for the outdoor environment. It is lightweight, low-power, weather-tight and easy to install and maintain. It is constructed with a durable aluminum chassis and is configured to function right out of the box with self-pointing to the Eutelsat OneWeb satellite constellation. The HL1120W includes an indoor unit, which provides a Wi-Fi 6 router and 2 GigE LAN ports. The terminal is manufactured by Hughes in its factory in Maryland, USA.

For low-latency applications and service in hard-to-reach places, the Hughes Managed LEO service provides a reliable, high-speed option. As a OneWeb distributor, Hughes can deploy LEO capacity as a managed broadband service, a multi-orbit mobility or enterprise solution, or part of a multi-transport Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) or highly specialized military network.
