Tier 3 Certification From WTA Awarded To Talia Limited's Raisting Teleport

The World Teleport Association (WTA) has announced that Talia Limited has achieved full certification of its teleport, The Talia Teleport, under WTA’s recently launched Teleport Certification Program—the Talia Teleport, located in Raisting, Germany, has achieved Tier 3 Certification under the WTA Program.

WTA’s Teleport Certification Program aims to serve 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. The Program 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-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.
