The World Teleport Association (WTA) has revealed its annual rankings for Top teleport Operator of 2021. SES, headquartered in Luxembourg but with other important teleports in Europe and the US, takes the Number 1 spot.

WTA says its annual rankings of companies by revenue and revenue growth are compiled by surveying teleport operators around the world as well as referencing the published results of publicly held companies.

“The rapid advance of LEO and MEO networks has focused the industry’s attention on the vital role of ground segment in closing the link,” said WTA executive director Robert Bell. “Our association was founded in 1985 on this very idea: that the intelligence of the global satellite network is largely provided by teleport operators developing high-value solutions for customer problems. Our Top Operators lists continue to celebrate that fact.”
