Turkish mobile market leader Turkcell is optimising its wholesale voice carrier business, having selected Istanbul-based Verscom Solutions’ ODINE system – a suite of intelligent wholesale voice business management applications. Ozgur Genc, core network technology director at Turkcell, said: ‘Our customers and carrier partners expect high service quality from our Wholesale Voice department. With ODINE, we can make our wholesale business more efficient and agile, leading to improved quality, lowered operating costs, and higher traffic volumes and margins.’ Alper Tunga Burak, managing partner at Verscom, added that ‘we look forward to updating Turkcell to the next generation BOS module of ODINE which adds Mobility and Offer Management.’
TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database notes that Turkcell’s fixed network division Turkcell Superonline incorporates international wholesale operations via a network with eleven international border crossings – five to Europe and six to the East – offering route diversity to/from Europe and capacity services through the Middle East and CIS countries. By 2016 it was carrying over 2Tbps of international traffic whilst providing telecom services to more than 70 international operators including Tier-1 companies, under a strategy to capitalise on Turkey’s geostrategic location as an ‘internet bridge’ between East and West.
Verscom Solutions is a systems integrator and a Cloud PaaS/SaaS service provider to communication service providers as well as wholesale voice/data aggregators globally. Verscom’s ‘Go Cloud’ service bundles ODINE which provides ‘flexible policy driven routing, route optimisation, offer management, rating, billing, number portability, technical and business reporting and analytics, as well as dispute management, with best-of-breed SBC, TDM/SIP Interworking services on the cloud’, the company’s press release says.
