Being the first Turkish operator in the 5G consortium supported under the European Union Innovation Program Horizon 2020, Turk Telekom successfully completed the Industrial 5G project.
Constructing Turkey’s digital future, Turk Telekom successfully completed the international Clear5G (ultra-reliable 5G machine-type communication for the factories of the future) project, which it participated in with its subsidiary Argela. Turk Telekom revealed that within the scope of the project, lower latency data transmission, ultra-high reliability and accessibility can be achieved with 5G in factories. Thanks to the project, it was also ensured that all machines communicating in different standards could talk to each other with the internet of things (IoT) technology.
CONTRIBUTION TO DIGITALIZATION
Telecom Technology Deputy General Manager Yusuf Kirac said: “With the International Clear5G project, we proved that the capabilities of 5G technology can be adapted to the production area, and we have made a significant contribution to the digitalization process of factories with 5G and beyond technologies. By participating in International R&D programs such as Horizon 2020 and Eureka, we will continue to create value on a global scale with our R&D and innovation studies in the field of next generation telecommunications technologies, and we will continue to crown new ideas and products we have developed on 5G technologies with international patents.”
FIRST TESTS ARE DONE
A total of 11 companies from France, Greece and Taiwan took part in the project, as well as the University of Surrey from England and world giants such as Toshiba and Adlink. Turk Telekom became the first Turkish operator whose project was accepted in the international consortium within the scope of Horizon 2020 in 5G and beyond research. With this work, Turk Telekom supported the realization of the Industry 4.0 vision more quickly and effectively, and also contributed to the determination of the network requirements, management systems and architectures necessary for the realization of potential industrial 5G applications in factories. The project was carried out with grant support within the scope of Horizon 2020, the European Commission’s largest-budget civil research and innovation program in the international arena.
