    Turkcell virtualises voice interconnect services


    Services to run on Ribbon’s ‘container-ready’ solution to expand capacity, flexibility and automation

    Turkcell has selected Ribbon and its partner Odine, which specialises in integrating virtualized and containerized infrastructure and solutions to upgrade its voice interconnect services.

    Dr Gediz Sezgin, Turkcell’s Chief Technology Officer (pictured), commented, “Virtualisation and cloudification of existing services is a foundational step in our digitalisation journey and also helps us lower costs and simplify operations through centralised management while enabling real-time resource allocation”.

    He added, “We selected Ribbon and Odine based on their domain expertise, innovation, and disruptive solutions”. 

    The solution, deployed in Turkcell’s core network, includes Ribbon’s session border controller software edition (SBC SWe), its policy and routing software edittion (SX SWe), and virtualised element management system (EMS). 

    Steve McCaffery, Ribbon’s EVP, EMEA & APAC Sales, said, “Our SBC SWe delivers key benefits including elasticity and high availability without compromising scale or performance over Turkell’s global IP network infrastructure.”
