WTA Certification Program announces certification of Arqiva’s Crawley Court Teleport


The World Teleport Association (WTA) announced that Arqiva has achieved Tier 4 certification of its teleport in Crawley Court, United Kingdom under WTA’s Teleport Certification Program.


Alongside the renewal of Arqiva Chalfont Grove Tier 4 Teleport certification, this underpins Arqiva’s commitment to provide the highest level of secure, resilient ground services to their satellite, broadcast and utilities customers.


Crawley Court Teleport is located at Arqiva’s Winchester headquarters, with 32 transmit earth stations, data center facilities and equipment hosting. As a Critical National Infrastructure service provider, Arqiva are now uniquely positioned to now offer two Tier 4 WTA certified Teleports.


To achieve Full Certification under WTA’s program, an auditor is dispatched to visit the teleport, provide independent validation of the data submitted in a 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.


“We’re delighted to achieve Tier 4 certification for our Crawley Court Teleport as well as renewing the Tier 4 certification for Chalfont Grove Teleport. Our customers rely on Arqiva to provide end-to-end services of the highest quality and availability,” said Lesley Wilson, Head of Satellite and Gateway Services. “Achieving Tier 4 certification from the WTA is a clear sign to our customers and the industry that we operate at the highest possible standards. Arqiva take cyber security very seriously with specialists in many different areas of data security, we actively look for trends and threats on the horizon and work alongside our customers to proactively support them in this area.“


“Since its beginning, the teleport industry has been an entrepreneurial success story,” said Executive Director Robert Bell. “It is now a maturing industry, even as new entrants continue to appear, and it is quickly adopting the Independent, standards-based evaluation and validation offered by the WTA Certification program.”
