AERZEN, Germany, March 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —
Onlime was announced as the winner of the 2015 Independent Teleport of the Year at the Awards luncheon held on 17 March during the Satellite 2015 Conference in Washington, D.C. The award presented by the WTA (World Teleport Association) during the Satellite Conference is one of the most reputable and longest established in our industry.
Since 1995, WTA has presented annual awards to companies and individuals who have dramatically demonstrated excellence in the field of teleport operations, development and technology. Recipients are selected by committees of previous recipients, WTA Board members and management, and Industry Leader and Patron members.
“This is our 20th year of honouring teleport operators, the technology companies that contribute to their success, and the executives who lead them,” said WTA Executive Director Robert Bell. “For an industry that typically operates behind the scenes of the satellite business, it is a remarkable record of achievement.”
“Onlime has consolidated multiple facilities and services into a very forward-looking teleport operation that is a good model for serving a range of customer segments,” said Louis Zacharilla, Director of Development for WTA and the emcee of the Awards Luncheon since 1995.
“It is a great honour and privilege to be recognised by the industry peers and previous recipients. This Award is often considered an Oscar of our industry and rightly so. It is an elite club that we are so proud to become a member of. We have continued our extensive investment program at the teleport and now have all the attributes in place – infrastructure, services, brand, operations and the TEAM to succeed and keep delivering high-quality services,” said Paul Ziegler, Onlime CEO.
