Batelco Obtains World Teleport Association (WTA) Certification

Batelco continues Efforts towards Global Service Excellence

Batelco, the region’s prime teleport services provider, continues to provide world-class teleport services to satellite and VSAT operators, with the company’s fully equipped teleport placing Bahrain on the global map of satellite operations.

Adding to its achievements in this field, Batelco has obtained provisional certification for its Ras Abu Jarjur teleport from the WTA (World Teleport Association) under its Teleport Certification Programme.

Batelco was awarded the provisional certification after going through a comprehensive process, which includes completing a +170 item questionnaire. The WTA analysed the data based on standards established by its Certification Committee before issuing the provisional certification.

Batelco Bahrain CEO Eng. Muna Al Hashemi said that Batelco was welcomed by the WTA as an Industry Patron Member in 2016 and the provisional certification is the next step which adds further weight to Batelco’s global services portfolio.

“Receiving the certification demonstrates the commitment of Batelco towards service excellence and promoting Bahrain as a global hub for services. The WTA is recognised for its high standards and reaching the stage of provisional certification is a very big achievement,” noted Mrs. Al Hashemi.

Batelco Chief Global Business Officer Adel Al-Daylami said that Batelco, as the Middle East’s prime teleport services provider already delivers world-class teleport services to satellite operators.

“We are proud that Batelco’s teleport boasts 30,000 square metres of operational area with customers gaining access to the telecom’s MPLS, SDH and Ethernet national and international networks in addition to diverse Internet uplinks. The teleport presents an optimum choice for satellite and VSAT operators around the globe as it can run any application on any topology,” said Mr. Al-Daylami

Batelco recognises that the satellite industry is a key catalyst for the Bahraini economy, as it services a number of verticals including maritime, oil and gas, enterprise and broadcast.

WTA’s Teleport Certification Programme 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.
