From the Greek tele, meaning far off, and the Latin porta, meaning door, and translating literally as far off door. A contraction of telecommunications port. A telecommunications hub where satellite service providers cluster satellite antennas. A teleport acts as a centralized physical gateway between terrestrial and nonterrestrial networks. A teleport generally is located in proximity to a major population center, but far enough away, or high enough, to have an unobstructed view of orbiting satellites in order to ensure line-of-sight (LOS) connectivity and, therefore, high-quality communications.
