Turkey's Leader in Information and Communication Technologies Provider to Help Accelerate Open Source Innovation and Automation Globally

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MEF 17'--The Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) Project continues its membership growth with the addition of new Platinum member Türk Telekom. Türk Telekom, Turkey's world-class, integrated telecommunication and technology services provider, joining the project demonstrates both the continued ONAP momentum globally and growing commitment to open standards and open source.

Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP)

With this collaboration and extension into Turkey, Türk Telekom will help accelerate ONAP globally and continue its mission to deliver a neutral automation platform for networks. Türk Telekom will also help ONAP execute the project's plan for cloud providers and enterprises challenged to provide on-demand services profitably and competitively, while leveraging existing investments.  By unifying member resources, ONAP will accelerate the development of a vibrant ecosystem around a globally shared architecture and implementation for network automation–with an open standards focus–faster than any one product could on its own.

Türk Telekom joins 18 other global service providers and technology leaders that are platinum ONAP members including Amdocs, AT&T, Bell, China Mobile, China Telecom, Cisco, Ericsson, GigaSpaces, Huawei, IBM, Intel, Jio, Nokia, Orange, Tech Mahindra, VMWare, Vodafone and ZTE. In addition, 55 percent of the world's mobile subscribers are supported by its members.

"We are delighted to invest in ONAP at the highest level and help guide the strategic, technical, and marketing direction for the project. As the only Turkish operator participating at ONAP, we believe joining the project is crucial for our  vision and helps us to better support technologies that our engineers are building," said Cengiz Doğan, Chief Technology Officer of Türk Telekom. "We believe that ONAP has the ability to transform future networks by providing end-to-end, closed-loop automation to design, orchestrate, automate and manage new services."

Türk Telekom offers its customers a complete range of mobile, broadband, data, TV and fixed voice services as well as innovative convergence technologies. With its rich history and continued growth, Türk Telekom is helping to advance Turkey into one of the largest telecom markets in EMEA. With its global presence, Türk Telekom will help drive the ONAP initiative into new regions and spread the continued adoption of open standards and open source.

"We are delighted to welcome Türk Telekom to the project and expand the list of telecommunication and technology services providers supporting ONAP," said Arpit Joshipura, General Manager of Networking and Orchestration, The Linux Foundation. "With Türk Telekom on board, we look forward to their ongoing POC development and together will collaborate to create the future of network automation."
