“The 2015 Awards will mark our 20th consecutive year honoring companies and individuals in the satellite-based services business,” said executive director Robert Bell. “The providers of managed services and their technology partners do not always get the headlines in our industry, and WTA is proud to give them the recognition they deserve.”
In addition to the Independent Teleport Operator of the Year and the Teleport Technology of the Year, WTA will also present an award for the Teleport Executive of the Year, to be selected by an awards committee of the association. The 2015 Teleport Awards will be presented on March 17 at a luncheon ceremony for invited guests at the SATELLITE 2015 conference at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
