Nokia, Turk Telecom Collaborate For 5G, IoT

Turk Telekom and Finland’s Nokia have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to accelerate the development of 5G radio access network technology and the applications that will drive the Internet of Things (IoT).


Turk Telecom will supply its network infrastructure to Nokia for real-time testing of 5G in Turkey. Further, they will work together on tracking, metering, smart cities, smart home, and latency-sensitive applications.

Commenting on the partnership, Rami Aslan, CEO at Turk Telekom said, “We intend to be a pioneer in the deployment of technologies that differentiate our customer services. Working with Nokia, we have already launched 4G LTE-Advanced in Turkey, and the development of 5G technology will allow us to drive digital revolution, changing the way of life for our customers and growing the economy. We are pleased to yet again leverage Nokia’s expertise and innovation leadership.”

Both companies focus on the development of a cloud architecture for radio and core network technology that can support Network Slicing in particular.

In a crucial step towards 5G, Nokia currently deploys 4G LTE-Advanced technology for Turk Telekom, and the operator has already launched LTE-A services in Turkey. Furthermore, Nokia has been a longstanding provider to Turk Telekom of customer care and analytics-driven solutions from its Motive portfolio.

“By signing the agreement with Turk Telekom to develop 5G and IoT technologies, we are taking an important step towards defining the future of mobile networks. Our work with customers on 5G is crucial in allowing us to better understand real network use-cases for this technology and to accelerate commercial use,” said Ernst Nassl, head of customer business team Turkey and Central Asia at Nokia.
