Turkcell supports strategic transformation with Red Hat Training

Turkcell is a digital operator headquartered in Turkey, serving customers with its unique portfolio of digital services along with voice, messaging, data, and multi-screen TV services on its mobile and fixed networks.


To stay competitive, Turkcell decided to migrate its network from a hardware-based system to a new, software- and cloud-based network functions virtualization (NFV) infrastructure.


Red Hat provided Red Hat OpenStack Platform training, including on-site workshops, for Turkcell’s engineers. Hands-on learning has helped the engineers increase their knowledge of Red Hat OpenStack Platform, including best practices for migrating from hardware-based networking and effective management techniques.


  • Cut deployment time for new services and functions by 66%
  • Minimized service outages with enterprise support
  • Realized significant evolution in the talents of network operation and engineering teams


“We saw a significant evolution in the talents of our network operation and engineering teams. We now have engineers with the best expertise in the region.”
