The Hughes TurboPage with ActiveCompression functionality aims to provide up to 50 per cent compression gain of transmitted HTTP traffic by compressing both text and image data.
The company says that its ActiveCompression technology is a “lossless” compression algorithm that preserves the original quality of both text and images.
Hughes has also designed a dual stack IPv4/IPv6 capability which enables the simultaneous support of both protocols. Implementing IPv6 is like to become an increasingly important issue as IPv4 address space continues to run out.
“These new features future-proof our customers’ networks,” said Adrian Morris, executive vice president, engineering at Hughes.
“The internet’s growth creates an almost endless demand for new bandwidth. Growth is also causing the internet to outstrip its own protocols.”
“By providing network operators with higher compression rates for more efficient bandwidth use and dual-stack support to ease the transition to IPv6, we’ve given them the tools to ride out the internet’s growing pains without disrupting service to their customers.”
These new features are available on both HN and HX Systems.
