Hughes have released a new Network Management System product in the form of a major software upgrade of the management interface for the Hughes HX VSAT DVB-S2 teleport hub system.
The new facilities allow local resellers and agents to access the HX NMS in read-only mode to observe the detailed status of the customer terminals that thue look after.
This is intended to help local agents and resellers to answer queries from end user customers, particular regarding site configuration, site and network traffic flows and general network operation.
Starting from a top level network overview (see below), it is possible to look at progressively more detail to verify and check the status of individual sites, right down to modem receive signal strength.
