Vodafone Turkey has signed an extended cooperation with Huawei for its smart city project, TechCity.

As part of the new TechCity 2.0 project, Vodafone Turkey have implemented 4*4 MIMO and Centralized RAN(C-RAN) technologies in some key areas in the country e.g Turkey's smart stadium, the Besiktas ground to provide superior capacity and speed.

Within the vicinity of the stadium, speeds of 400 Mbps have been reached with the world’s first commercial licensed and unlicensed bands aggregation technology (LAA 3CC), enabled by Huawei's Lampsite base station.

By deploying Distributed RAN (D-RAN) and Easy Macro solutions, the best Internet experience was provided for high dense areas like in universities, hotels, concert venues, social activity areas and on very crowded roads, to increase coverage and capacity, said Vodafone Turkey.

Recently, Vodafone Turkey and Huawei completed the world’s first verification of the GL spectrum sharing solution on Vodafone's commercial networks in Istanbul. This innovative solution enables spectrum sharing between GSM and LTE, which increases both LTE data rate and cell capacity. Compared to LTE 5M, the LTE peak rate increases by nearly 80%.

Colman Deegan, CEO, Vodafone Turkey
As Vodafone, we strongly believe that every nation should aim to be a Gigabit Society, a society where citizens and businesses benefit from widespread connectivity of 1 gigabit per second, low latency and a reliable performance delivered by robust, future-proof fixed and mobile technologies. 

James Chen, President of Huawei Central Asia and Caucasia Region 
TechCity project is a very important platform on which Huawei with operators verify leading technologies, realize business success and take social responsibility.
