Turkcell boosts streaming experience in Turkey with Qwilt’s edge cloud and Cisco infrastructure

Cisco and Qwilt recently announced they are partnering with Turkcell to boost digital content and applications. The aim is to improve streaming experiences and enable faster data delivery to millions of mobile and fixed broadband customers.

Turkcell will use Qwilt’s open edge cloud, supported by Cisco’s networking and edge computing infrastructure, for streamlined content delivery. Integrated into Turkcell’s network edge, the solution enhances data handling and the subscriber experience, the companies note.

The companies add that with 99% network coverage in Turkey through 9,000 towers, open caching services are activated at multiple points of presence (PoPs), enabling high-quality content delivery.

Emre Erdem, the general manager of Turkcell Superonline, states that Turkey’s role as a digital link between East and West is becoming more prominent.

“By embracing Cisco and Qwilt’s Open Edge model, we’re fortifying our network to meet the demands of content publishers, ensuring Turkey’s and the region’s digital population remains constantly connected, entertained and informed,” states Erdem.

“Our fiber roll-out strategy has enabled us to provide fiber internet to over 5.7 million home passes across 28 cities in Turkey, and we continue our investments to expand our infrastructure further,” she adds.

Over 175 service providers and content publishers worldwide, including Verizon, TIM Brazil, and BT, have partnered with Qwilt to implement the Open Edge. Together, they serve over one billion subscribers globally.

Qwilt’s collaborations extend to US media companies for content delivery through their global network.

Elif Yenihankaya, Turkcell’s director of network capabilities, states that by working closely with Cisco and Qwilt, they aim to expand their services to deliver exceptional digital experiences to customers in Turkey.

“This deployment will allow us to meet the rising bandwidth demands and ensure a superior quality of experience for our valued customers,” says Yenihankaya. “We are excited about the future and anticipate further partnerships with content publishers, offering enhanced capacity and consistency in content delivery across Turkey.”

The VP of Cisco, Theodore Tzevelekis, additionally mentions that this collaboration enables Turkcell to offer quality streaming services to its customers and sets the groundwork for upcoming edge computing applications.
