Turkey is aiming to have a say in 5G technologies and beyond in the international arena. As an important step towards it, Turkey’s Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Ministry, has signed a collaboration agreement with the US-based Open Networking Foundation (ONF).
The latest move aims to provide Turkey with a say in 5G technologies and beyond in the international arena. It will also increase mobile penetration in the country’s rural areas by resolving the coverage insufficiency problem through its Universal Service Project.
Paul Doany, CEO, Türk Telekom shared, “Participating in such a world league and realising cooperation projects will bring great advantages to our country as well as our company. We will once again assume a key role in this new collaboration between our Ministry and the ONF and enable the next generation open source communication technologies to be tested in Turkey for the first time in the world.”
