A Good Teleport is Hard to Find – But Not For Long

Posted By Robert Bell, Thursday, February 8, 2018

Since the days when Lyngsat was the go-to resource (remember that?), people have been looking for a reliable, high-quality source of information on teleports. Those people work for satellite operators, for broadcasters, for corporate IT, in the oil and gas patch, in government and military. They work in any industry where there is a need to connect the network in the sky with the network on the ground and buy services that create a complete solution.

We understand the need because WTA has been filling it for a long time. You can already search for teleport operators in our online Marketplace. If they are members, we can also provide a great deal of accurate information about them. If you want to drill deeper, our Teleport Certification program helps you identify operators with quality of service your application needs.

But there has been something missing. The search for a teleport typically begins with a location. You need a facility within the footprint of a particular satellite, or one that is located strategically near a group of network endpoints. Working your way through text listings is a tough way to find what you need.

World Teleport Map

We are pleased to announce the solution: the World Teleport Map. Using Google Maps technology, we provide geolocation of hundreds of teleports around the world.  A click on the link will take you to our most up-to-date information on the operator and facilities, and whether or not they are WTA-certified. The same great, reliable information is now available to potential customers and strategic partners in a convenient visual format.

We will introduce the map shortly. It is one more reason for teleport operators to join their peers as members of WTA. It will ensure that they are well represented in the world’s only geographic guide to the industry. And for our certified teleports, it offers a new level of recognition of the quality of service they have validated through our program.
