NEW DELHI: Hughes India, a majority-owned subsidiary of Hughes Network Systems LLC, Wednesday said it has been selected by private-sector oil retailer, Nayara Energy, to install, integrate and manage a satellite network solution across 3,500 of its retail outlets.
As part of the five-year partnership, Hughes India will deploy its software-defined satellite solution–HughesON which will use the Jupiter System, the “de-facto standard” for satellite implementations worldwide, with routers, gateways, and a network management system, as per an official statement.
The upgraded network will leverage the capacity on the GSAT-16 and SES-9 satellites for data transmissions such as delivering daily price updates to remote petrol pumps, fuel tank monitoring, and the implementation of a customer loyalty program. “Our association with Hughes has been focused towards driving higher connectivity and reliability across the network of 4000+ automated retail fuel stations in the country. The coverage provided by Hughes through critical VSAT connectivity has proved to be of great value for our franchise network,” said Stephan Beyeler, Chief Marketing Officer at Nayara Energy.
“The new solution, part of our HughesON portfolio of managed services, will simplify network operations and help Nayara execute real-time reporting and analysis while improving efficiency and optimizing their operations,” added Hughes India, Enterprise Business Head, Shivaji Chatterjee.
Hughes India has separate contracts with Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL), Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL), and Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (HPCL) under which it has deployed the Jupiter System technology.
