Red Hat has tied up with Turkcell, the Istanbul-based mobile phone operator, to help execute its unified telco cloud strategy.
Turkcell built a centralized virtualization infrastructure (NFVi), named its Unified Telco Cloud, on Red Hat OpenStack Platform. Red Hat Ceph Storage, an open, software-defined storage technology, lend support to the company in unifying its services on a single cloud.
With this open foundation, Turkcell can implement its choice of virtual network functions (VNFs) faster and is able to more flexibly scale resources as needed.
Turkcell said it decided to leverage open source community innovation bolstered by the greater stability, reliability, security and support of an enterprise platform.
Red Hat Consulting helped Turkcell design its Unified Telco Cloud and train up its network team, in collaboration with Affirmed Networks in the role of main systems integrator.
