New WTA report, “Automating the Teleport,” explores the critical role of automation in the industry’

The World Teleport Association (WTA) today released Automating the Teleport, a new research report that shares insights from thought leaders in the industry on how automation will play a critical role in transforming the teleport from traditional antenna farms to data centers with dishes that layer on value-added capabilities and services. Based on interviews with executives from teleport, satellite and technology firm, the report offers guidance on what to automate, how to analyze the cost and benefit, and how to avoid deployment nightmares. The report is sponsored by Kratos.

The teleport which sits in between the terrestrial and space segment is being driven to become more innovative and operationally efficient to meet these new bandwidth demands. The current environment is changing quickly and moving from traditional teleports working with wideband FSS satellites to HTS gateways supporting a huge increase in bandwidth and an exponential growth in services. The critical question is: how will the teleport increase efficiencies to support more capacity, more customers, more services, more flexibility and more dynamic usage, all at a lower cost per service? “Automation improves the technical operation of ground segment businesses,” said executive director and report editor Robert Bell. “But the real payoff is on the commercial side. Automation allows companies to shift from being reactive to proactive, enabling faster delivery of services at lower cost, and adding revenues without expanding headcount.”
