Hawaii Pacific Teleport Achieves Provisional Certification of Kapolei Teleport

The World Teleport Association (WTA) recently announced that Hawaii Pacific Teleport has achieved provisional certification of its Kapolei (Honolulu, HI, USA) teleport under WTA’s Teleport Certification Program.

Since its introduction at IBC 2015, the Certification program has quickly grown in popularity, with 20 teleports currently engaged in the quality evaluation process and certifications already issued to teleports owned by Eutelsat, du, Signalhorn, Optus, Globecomm, Media Broadcast Satellite, Horizon, Elara Comunicaciones, GlobalSat, Talia, Telenor, Speedcast, Batelco, Planetcast, VIVACOM, CETel, Intelsat and Arqiva.

To achieve Provisional Certification, a teleport operator completes a +170-item questionnaire and submits it to WTA. The Association analyses 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 three years.

Leeana Smith-Ryland CEO, said, “We are dedicated to providing a reliable experience. Our recent addition of Mark DeSantis as Operations Manager is testament to our commitment of providing the highest quality of service to our customers, and operating a robust, redundant infrastructure worthy of the WTA’s Tier 4 certification.”

“Hawaii Pacific Teleport offers a prime example,” said WTA executive director Robert Bell, “of small teleport operator with global reach. With their provisional certification from WTA, they are adopting global standards of excellence to ensure the quality of their operations.”

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.
