Turkcell announced that the company became the first operator in Turkey to deploy NarrowBand IoT (NB-IoT) across the country over its 4G LTE-A network.

With the availability of NB-IoT network, machines communicate fast and effectively and makes lives easier and smarter in cities, said Turkcell. As an example this technology can be used in large cities where parking space is a problem, where sensors which communicate fast allow people to reserve parking spaces in advance and save time and fuel. Sensors installed on garbage containers allow the garbage to be collected on time based on fill rate. Smart sensors make remote monitoring of water and gas levels easier.

On the other hand, this technology brings a new vision to agriculture and livestock industries. Automatic irrigation of cultivated areas based on measurement of humidity improve the crop yield and tracking applications for livestock are made more effective and easier.

This new technology contributes to the organizations by changing their way of doing business and facilitates tracking of human health. This helps tracking health and sport activities through body sensors and ensures that the necessary interventions in a timely manner.

Gediz Sezgin, Turkcell's Executive Vice President Network Technologies
It is expected that the economy created by this technology as of 2025 will exceed USD 3 trillion. Offering a technology which will create such a volume requires a very strong LTE - A infrastructure. We offer the first and the best NarrowBand - Internet of Things services in Turkey thanks to the advantages and broad coverage of the frequencies.
