Turkcell – a digital operator headquartered in Turkey – and Samsung Electronics entered a collaboration on Monday in Turkey.
Turkcell, striving for Turkey to be one of the first countries to use 5G, and Samsung, offering 5G solutions, organized an event to experience live 5G in Turkey.
Guests of the event got the opportunity to witness live 5G for the first time in the experience zones of UHD Live Streaming, Cloud Gaming, 360-degree Camera, and VR streaming by using Samsung’s 5G Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) solutions, combined with the infrastructure of Turkcell.
Thanks to 5G FWA technologies, high-quality Gigabit connections can be made with 5G in homes and offices where there is no fiber infrastructure.
In addition to Maltepe Plaza, Samsung’s 5G FWA solutions have been tested in Istanbul Technical University and Kadikoy, a dense province of Istanbul.
