Turkish operators test domestic 4G base station

20 Apr 2015

A group of Turkish telcos and equipment manufacturers have developed a new 4G-enabled base transceiver station (BTS) ahead of next month’s planned multiband spectrum auction, reports Hurriyet Daily News. The cell site, which is said to meet ‘global standards’, has been jointly developed by telecoms companies Netas and Argela and defence manufacturer Aselsan, and will serve Turkey’s three GSM operators – Turkcell, Vodafone Turkey and Avea – all of which have signed an agreement to trial the BTS over a three- to four-month test period.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, Turkish regulator the Bilgi Teknolojileri ve Iletisim Kurumu (BTK) has set a date for the upcoming frequency auction of 26 May; the tender will include 20 spectrum lots across the 800MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 2100MHz and 2600MHz bands, while a block of 2600MHz spectrum will also be reserved for a new market entrant, although the newcomer will not be obliged to launch GSM services.
