Designed to monitor and adapt to network congestion over broad band network
Hughes Network Systems, a provider of managed network and application services, has launched ActiveQoS Voice-over-IP (VoIP) offering for the government market.
Hughes said that using the new technology, it can provide superior voice quality over broadband, eliminating the need for agencies to invest in leased line Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks.
Hughes ActiveQoS technology is integrated into the user equipment onsite, which is designed to monitor and adapt to network congestion over the broadband network.
Hughes ActiveQoS incorporates optimisation methods, including traffic metering, network change adaptation, and traffic prioritisation, to ensure that real-time, latency sensitive applications, such as voice, get through on an end-to-end basis.
Hughes claims that it can enable government to consolidate all their voice and data capabilities under a single managed services provider employing mix of broadband network transport technologies.
The Hughes VoIP offering includes both hosted VoIP, as well as Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) trunking services, and offers full number portability.
Hughes assistant vice president for government solutions Tony Bardo said that the federal agencies can now take advantage of a featured VoIP offering that improves operations and employee efficiency and provides a better user experience, while simultaneously lowering infrastructure costs.
