Cabir Bilirgen, General Manager of Communications, Ministry of Transport and Communications of Turkey
Bilirgen pointed to the development of telecommunication and IT sectors in Turkey .
“The broadband reached up to Megabits with the beginning of 21th century, and Gigabits will come in a few years. This huge broadband access rates get the service variety and quality. The market and service providers must take heed of infrastructure. To corporate an international consortium is necessary for a perfect infrastructure. The communication between countries is the most important fact in ICT market. We will cope with the digital divide by improving our projects. Telecommunication market used to have a monopolist structure, but it improved with privatization and the liberalization.
ICT Market is constantly growing year by year in Turkey . Market size was 25.8 billion USD in 2007. We believe that, our ICT market has a further potential to grow and our target to reach a market size to 50 billion USD within 5 years.
There are about 20 million fixed line subscribers and 63 million GSM subscribers. There are over 5 million ADSL users. There are 8 million computers and 30 million computer users in Turkey . Internet connection capacity has reached up to 157 Gbps.
Our liberalization process has been started by granting two GSM 900 licenses in 1998. Studies on 3G tender process is going on. As you know, 3G and the similar technologies provide mobility to the broadband access. 3G applications will be the complementary services of wire line and fixed wireless broadband applications.
It is expected that performing WiMAX and similar broadband wireless access technologies in our country will be an important factor of transition into information society.
Satellite operations are also one of the major segments in our communications portfolio.
Our general policies regarding Information and communications technologies sector are;
- To ensure the full-liberalization and well functioning competitive environment in the market,
- To protect the users rights,
- To ensure the efficient and effective utilization of national resources,
- To plan and implement the universal service projects,
- To reduce tax burden on telecommunication market,
- To ensure unemployment.”

Galip Zerey, Vice Chairman of the Board, Telecommunication Authority of Turkey
Mr. Zerey gave real statistics and numbers about the Turkish Telecommunication market in his speech. He also talked about 3G and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) licences in Turkey . Galip Zerey made a telecommunication summary: “According to February 2008 results, there are 18.2 million fixed line users and 62.3 million GSM subscribers in Turkey and GSM penetration reached to %87. ADSL users reached to 4.8 million. We have 246 authorized operators and so values of fixed line are protected.
The Internet penetration is 7% in Turkey . Broadband Internet access penetration is 98.7% in all accesses, so dial-up Internet usage decreased very rapidly. Turk Telekom has 4.599.410, Turksat Cable Net has 41.109 and the other ADSL service providers have 211.816 subscribers. 94.8% of these users have chosen 1Mbit/s and 4GB limited tariff.
Long distance service market share is increased. Telecommunication service revenue has reached to 16.7 billion USD. According to 2007 results, the mobile market revenue is 9.35 billion Dollars. Fixed line revenue is 5.81 billion USD and fixed data service has 1.32 billion USD.
To date, 90 million handsets are recorded onto our database (in 2007 15,881,096 handsets).
Regulations are 95% compatible with European Union , when the Electronic Communication Law is confirmed by the parliament, regulations compatibility will reach to 99%. At the 3G authorization side, we are planning to give 4 licenses. And so the doors are open for a new telecommunication operator. We will also give new licenses for the Mobile Virtual Network Operators.”

Celalettin Dinçer, COO, Türk Telekom
Mr. Celalettin Dinçer pointed out broadband technologies and their opportunities for the countries and Türk Telecom's place in ICT sector:
“ICT is the key sector for economy and it's a major vehicle in supporting productivity growth. ICT sector creates the information society. Broadband shows the development levels of the countries. OECD broadband subscribers connect to Internet with 62% DSL, 29% Cable Modem, 8% Fiber+LAN and 1% the other. In broadband penetration rates, while OECD countries average is 18%, this rate in Turkey is only 7%, but we hope that this rate will reach to 8% at the end of this year. There are some difficulties to improve broadband usage. Low PC penetration, high tax rates, low personal revenues, bad content in Internet and poor computing education are main troubles.
Additionally, we have to indicate the importance of the fiber technologies. Fiber technologies bring out the innovation. Convergence is really important for us. Mobile, video and fixed are a great team for IPTV application services and a good example for convergence. Türk Telekom will present IPTV at the end of 2008 and we are planning to reach our big target which means “service anywhere”.
Türk Telekom will continue to improve network capacity, service quality, value-added services and end-user satisfaction.
Türk Telekom became an ICT Group of companies with buying R&D based IT companies (Innova, Argela). Our Internet House Project is successfully going on. At the end of June 2008, we will have 831 Internet Houses all around Turkey . The visitors of these houses can use Internet for free. Türk Telekom spent 20 million YTL for Internet Houses Project.
In this region there are many business opportunities: The new cable projects, sharing the broadband service experience, working with TT Group companies, international IP connections, PoPs and IDC services are some of these opportunities.”

Dr Andy Tiller, VP Marketing, IP.access
Mr. Tiller speech was about the applications of picocells and femtocells in the region. “IP.access solves in-building access problems for mobile operators, opening up new revenue streams while defending existing business. Our solutions bring IP and cellular technologies together to increase capacity and coverage; improve quality of experience; and drive down costs. IP.access' ‘whole systems' expertise and deep experience in live network deployments makes us the partner of choice for operators competing in the new converged marketplace. The nano GSM picocell from IP.access helps operators win and keep business customers by giving them their own private cells. Picocells help operators on to differentiate from commodity networks, to increase revenues from voice and data, to offer competitive in-office tariffs and to decrease churn. With picocells, operators can sell new services while improving macro cell performance. Picocells prevent operators over-spending on infrastructure because they enable Pinpoint Provisioning, adding coverage exactly where it's needed. Picocells provide a flexible, low impact and high-performance solution that integrates easily with all core networks. Femtocells are generating a lot of excitement in the mobile industry. Femtocells are an elegant, low cost solution to a problem that would otherwise cripple 3G penetrations. It's relatively easy to make a femtocell.  But it's much, much harder to make a complete system that's consumer-ready and integrates with your existing network. At IP.access, we've been deploying in-building access solutions for years.  We applied this experience to the non-trivial problems associated with 3G femtocells and have developed a complete, end-to-end solution that works for today's networks and prepares for IMS.”

Savaş Tanyeri, Manager, Export, Alcatel Lucent
Mr. Tanyeri's presentation was about WiMAX. “WiMAX brings high-speed Internet access to towns and cities where 3G mobile technology deployment costs are prohibitive, or to remote locations where running traditional cable or digital subscriber line networks are deemed too expensive or impractical. By using a standards-based approach, Universal WiMAX avoids many of the pitfalls of previous wireless access technologies to complement both 3G and fixed broadband access. Because of the standards-based approach and high capacity, WiMAX can provide either an alternative access method or complement an existing access method, and help providers get and keep their highly valuable customers.
WiMAX Rev-e's momentum became unstoppable in 2007. Commercial services launched with mobility. WiMAX formally became and IMT-2000 technology, alongside 3G. WiMAX is the first choice of terminal/CPE suppliers appeared on market. Voice and mobility features proven in real-world settings. Dozens of commercial networks will go online worldwide in 2008. Currently more than 50% of the world's population is covered by WiMAX licenses (primarily in the 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5 GHz spectrum bands), and operators are moving to bring new services to market using WiMAX.
You can turn technology into revenue with a variety of applications for fixed, mobile and Internet service providers. The IEEE 802.16e standard offers full mobility and sophisticated features (i.e., SOFDMA, Advanced Antenna Technologies) for optimal usage of radio resources. Alcatel-Lucent's compact and easy to deploy solution offers significant CAPEX and OPEX savings. Alcatel-Lucent has a broad solutions portfolio paired with vast expertise in end-to-end integration and project management.”

Mehmet Toros, Deputy General Manager, Türk Telekom
Mr. Toros pointed out the vision and market position of Turk Telekom: “Türk Telekom provides all kinds of national and international telecommunication services in Turkey .

“The usage rates are as the followings: Mobile 22%, fixed 6.9% and Internet 7.44%. Uzbekistan market has a real potential to grow. Communication infrastructure is not good, because of the service providers' indifferences. According to 2007 results, there are 5,888,175 mobile operator subscribers in Uzbekistan . The leader of market is MTS and it has 2,803,815 users with a 47.2% market share. Second operator is Beeline which has 2,198,033 subscribers with 37.33% market share. Coscom, Perfectum Mobile and Uzmobile are the other mobile operators. Mobile communications tariffs are clear and competitive.
The residential broadband access speeds are really low in Uzbekistan . Speeds are between 64Kbps and 1Mbps and actually monthly subscription fees are very high. Subscribers pay 29.8 USD monthly for an unlimited 64 Kbps while 512 Kbps costing 350 USD/month.
With the serious investments, penetration rates will increase and the high subscription fees decrease rapidly.”

GSM Gateways and Mobility Extension solutions
During the Caspian Telecoms Conference, we had the opportunity to make an interview with Pavel Chrudimsky, who works as a Regional Sales Director in 2N Telekomunikace. We are sharing the information with you about the facts of the new mobility and flexibility trends: GSM Gateways and Mobility Extension.

Could you please inform us about 2N Telekomunikace A.S.?
The 2N brand appeared in the world of telecommunications in 1991 for the first time. The first product developed and introduced under this brand name was 2N PBX. 2N Telekomunikace is a Czech company with wide portfolio of telecommunication products and technologies, which includes PBXs, GSM and UMTS Gateways and Door and Lift phone systems. 2N Telekomunikace exports to more than 120 countries worldwide and become one of the 5 highest ranked telecommunication companies in the Czech Republic .

Well equipped with experience, high-skilled staff and know-how, 2N has always been able to keep up with the latest and up-to-date technologies and innovations in the world of telecommunications.

What is 2N Telekomunikace's main target?
We have experienced knowledge about the producing GSM Gateways, IP Gateways, GSM Network products and PBXs. Our solutions get high flexibility and comfort while working out of your office. 2N Telekomunikace main target is: “You're mobile every way you'd like to be basically. We're focused on to produce GSM Gateways and Mobility Extensions.

GSM Gateway solutions and products
The GSM Gateway (also Fixed Cellular Terminal, Fixed Wireless Terminal, and Cellular Gateway) is a device that enables any user to save money on calls from fixed phones to GSM Networks. Generally speaking, mobile-to-mobile calls are cheaper than fixed-to-mobile calls. You can imagine the GSM Gateway like a mobile phone, through which all company calls go to mobile networks.
Having one or more SIM cards installed in the GSM Gateway (GSM Router, FCT), you can make mobile-to-mobile calls instead of fixed-to-mobile ones. Obviously, these devices are much more sophisticated and provide a lot of useful features and options such as sending SMS, sending fax messages, etc.

Mobility Extension solutions
Mobility Extension will transform your office fixed line into a mobile phone and thus give you maximum flexibility. In practical terms that means, that you do not have to be in your office while waiting for important calls, or worry that you are going to miss a call that could mean a significant business deal for you. You can be reached on your way to work or at home, if you choose to work there. Your mobile phone fully replaces the fixed line and rings along it. It is entirely up to you, which phone you will pick up.
Mobility Extension presents much key advantages. For example, a customer is calling you on your fixed line, at the same time, both the fixed line and the mobile starts ringing. It is up to you to decide, which phone you are going to use to answer the call - if you are in the office, you will pick up the fixed line, if you are out of the office, you will answer the mobile. Your mobile phone becomes a fixed line, along with all the features of a switchboard and Mobility Extension replaces expensive systems, such as DECT, which require an additional phone and as the most important fact you maintain only one phone list and the one in your mobile.
