NDA collaborated closely with senior teams at Türk Telekom and Parallel Wireless to design an Open RAN field pilot project through a grant provided by USTDA, helping to advance a more open telecom ecosystem in Türkiye.

The goal of the project is to accelerate the next-generation mobile network  architecture and help Türk Telekom its supplier relationships.   

The pilot will enable the operator to pilot Open RAN technologies capable of supporting multiple generations of mobile operations, from 2G to 5G. It includes a lab trial for 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G Open RAN solutions and a site trial of Open RAN technology on Türk Telekom’s live network, as noted in USTDA’s press release

Turkish national media also covered the story.
