Turkcell selects Affirmed's Service Orchestration/Automation and virtualised Wi-Fi gateway

15 Apr 2020

Turkish mobile operator Turkcell has selected US-based Affirmed Networks’ Service Orchestration & Automation platform and its virtualised Wi-Fi gateway ‘to profitably introduce new revenue-generating services faster and deliver seamless connectivity to customers’. Affirmed CTO Ron Parker said: ‘Implementing this platform, combined with our Wi-Fi solution, will allow Turkcell to create new network slices, help their enterprise customers to on-board and provision new customer premise equipment and enable new subscriber services to be deployed quickly, seamlessly and more reliably.’

In Q1 2019 Turkcell and Affirmed completed the implementation of a single, unified Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) infrastructure, and Turkcell has now virtualised 60% of its mobile core services on its telco cloud, which features 20 unique virtualised network functions (VNFs), and is on target to meet its 75% goal by the end of 2020.
