Affirmed Networks is offering some insights into how it helped Turkish mobile network operator Turkcell with the rapid deployment of one of the largest commercial network virtualization projects in the region. Turkcell’s virtualized network deployment supports more than 35 million mobile broadband subscribers and is “one of the most extensive live, commercial virtualized mobile networks” in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, according to Affirmed. The network carries more than a terabit per second of customer traffic across the region, Affirmed said. Affirmed was chosen as a vendor for the virtualization of Turkcell’s network a year ago; the company said that it will continue to support day-to-day operations of the virtualized network for the next three to five years.
