The World Teleport Association (WTA) announced on September 12, 2015 the launch of its Teleport Certification Program at a press briefing event at IBC Show 2015.
WTA’s Teleport Certification Program aims to serve both teleport operators and their customers by creating an objective, transparent, and internationally accepted method for teleport operators to document the quality of their operations for customers and strategic partners. It also aims to provide a means for customers to select teleport vendors delivering the price-performance level that is appropriate for their applications.
“This is the most important program WTA has introduced since the annual Satellite Operator Benchmarks survey, which measures teleport operator views of satellite operator commercial and operational practices,” said WTA executive director Robert Bell. “Promoting excellence in business, operations and technology is a key part of our mission, and Certification has the potential to improve the performance of every teleport operator in the market.”
