Spanish term or phrase: Telepuerto
This appears in the following description:

"Central internacional de telepuerto de Castellbisbal (primera instalación de comunicaciones por satélite de España)."

As far as I am aware "teleportation" is still strictly confined to Star Trek, isn't it? :-) So this must be another use of the word - some coinage with "tele" and "port"... Like airport, sea port, teleport.... But the SF echoes in English are too strong for me. What do you lot think?

Explanation:
Well, actually, teleportation is a neologism. It can be used safely regarding networks and communications. It means the ability to move computers from one place to anther. Hope it helps, good luck,
