SkyPort’s goal was to “raise the bar” in terms of efficiency, reliability, redundancy and customer service in the traditional satellite industry. Accomplishing that required developing a world-class data center and teleport facility. That was difficult enough in itself, but in order to capitalize on growing market demand for satellite-based telephony service, the company was on an extremely ambitious schedule—150 days from groundbreaking to first transmission.
