Talia Teleport Gets WTA Certification
[Via Satellite 05-20-2016] Talia Limited has achieved Tier 3 Certification under the World Teleport Association’s (WTA) recently launched Teleport Certification Program. The 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.
To achieve full certification under WTA’s program, a teleport operator completes a 170-plus-item questionnaire and submits it to WTA. The association analyzes the data and issues a provisional certification based on the self-reported information. WTA then dispatches an auditor 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.
Headquartered in the U.K., Talia owns its teleport in Raisting, Germany, from which it provides telecommunications services to the Middle East, Africa and Europe.
