The World Teleport Association (WTA) has announced that Optus Satellite has achieved Full Certification for its four primary teleports under WTA's recently launched Teleport Certification Program. Optus Teleports at Belrose in Sydney and Lockridge in Perth achieved the programs highest level Tier 4 Certification, while its Hume Teleport in Canberra and its Oxford Falls Teleport in Sydney achieved Tier 3 Certification.

To achieve Full Certification under WTA's program, 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 a Provisional Certification based on the self-reported information.

An auditor is then 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.

Paul Sheridan, Vice President, Optus Wholesale said "As Australia and New Zealand's leading provider of satellite services Optus has always been committed to ensuring exemplary standards of excellence across all facets of our business, and I am particularly pleased on behalf of all our team with this benchmark endorsement from the WTA."

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.
