(February 14th, 2019 – New York City) – The World Teleport Association (WTA) today announced that STN has achieved Tier 3 full certification of its Dob (Slovenia) teleport under WTA’s Teleport Certification Program. STN becomes the first teleport in Slovenia to achieve full certification and bring the number of fully-certified teleports around the world to 26.

Since its introduction at IBC 2015, the Certification program has quickly grown in popularity. Starting with one certified facility in 2015, the program has added more than 40 in 3 years, and currently has 10 teleports engaged in the quality evaluation process. Certifications have been issued to teleports operated by Eutelsat, du, COMSAT, Signalhorn, Optus, Globecomm, Horizon, Media Broadcast Satellite, Elara Comunicaciones, GlobalSat, Talia, Telenor, Vivacom, Cyta, STN, SingTel, CETel, Etisalat, Hawaii Pacific Teleport, Intelsat, Speedcast, Telespazio, Telstra, AXESAT and Arqiva. The industry has quickly adopted the transparent, independently verified standards as a means for teleports to differentiate themselves and for customers to choose the price-performance level suitable for their applications.

Full Certification under the WTA program is the result of a comprehensive data-collection and inspection process. A teleport operator completes a +170-item questionnaire and submits it to WTA. The Association analyzes the data based on standards established by its Certification Committee and issues the Provisional Certification based on the self-reported information. The teleport then has six months to achieve Full Certification. To achieve Full Certification under WTA’s program, an auditor is dispatched to visit the teleport, provide independent validation of the data submitted in the questionnaire, and identify additional factors that may positively or negatively affect the score. Full Certification is issued at a Tier number from 1 through 4, of which 4 represents the highest degree of excellence, and remains in effect for 3 years.

“We are very proud to receive the WTA full teleport certification which is a very highly regarded and recognized independent standardized evaluation,” said STN general manager Mijta Lovsin. “At STN we take great pride in our facility and the high level of services we provide to our respected clients from all around the world. We have always had an open and honest approach to our business and this full certification further proves the high level of professionalism and dedication we provide to our customers, partners and the industry. Elevated service performance capabilities bring STN into a new era of teleports and industry opportunities.”

“STN has built a reputation for excellence in teleport services,” said WTA executive director Robert Bell. “Certification at the coveted Tier 3 level is validation of a long-term commitment to quality of service for STN’s customers.”

WTA’s Teleport Certification Program serves 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 provides a means for customers to select teleport vendors delivering the price-performance level that is appropriate for their applications. Click here for a list of certified teleports.
