Red Hat Helps Türk Telekom Digitally Transform Across its Business to the Edge
Türk Telekom cuts time to market from days to seconds and improves application performance with Red Hat’s cloud-native technologies tailored for the open hybrid cloud

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced that Türk Telekom, Turkey’s first and leading integrated telecommunications operator, has deployed Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading Kubernetes platform, for use across its business to develop and scale cloud-native applications from core to edge for faster innovation.

Founded more than 180 years ago, Türk Telekom offers mobile, internet, phone, PSTN, wholesale and retail broadband services and TV products and services to millions across the country. The group’s vision is to be at the vanguard of introducing new technologies to Turkey to accelerate the country’s transformation into an information society.

Many communications service providers around the world are finding it increasingly challenging to meet customer demands in the context of ongoing digital transformation across industries and more recently, disruption from the Covid-19 pandemic. Türk Telekom wanted to apply cutting-edge application technologies and methods in order to deliver services more dynamically.

With this collaboration, Red Hat supported Türk Telekom with optimizing its microservices architecture and consolidating services and data management and analysis. It standardized on Red Hat OpenShift as the foundational horizontal application platform for greater ease of deployment and scaling. Red Hat Consulting and Red Hat Training provided upskilling programs to help Türk Telekom to get the best value from its cloud-native technologies and to be more agile using microservices and CI/CD. Türk Telekom also leaned on the expertise of Red Hat services to help define a security architecture that takes advantage of OpenShift’s native features including network and container isolation and application data access protection.

Türk Telekom’s strategy targets 30 key applications for migration to OpenShift. Ten applications are live today on the platform, providing an enhanced experience for customers. For example, the performance of game distribution platform has increased by up to 30% since its migration to OpenShift. Red Hat consultants continue to collaborate with Türk Telekom to shift workloads successfully, including one migration that completed 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

The 30 applications cover functions that span from core to edge and aim to improve operations as well as consumer and enterprise service delivery, such as:

  • Monitoring customer usage to make personalized offers using artificial intelligence (AI)
  • AI-powered holistic automation of infrastructure
  • Music-distribution application muud
  • Asset management using blockchain technologies
  • A managed cloud offering for enterprise customers
  • Internal network reporting and monitoring, as well as energy consumption analysis using Internet of Things (IoT) data collected from edge sites.

Using Red Hat OpenShift’s self-service capabilities Türk Telekom can deploy applications in as little as 90 seconds compared to taking days previously, with automation helping remove manual processes so developers can be more productive. More agile lifecycle management as well as autoscaling enables the business to bring new capabilities and updates to market as they are ready and manage workloads dynamically, instead of limiting production pushes to specific days. Additionally, Red Hat OpenShift Virtualization is enabling virtual machine workloads to be run and managed alongside container workloads. OpenShift holistically helps improve cost effectiveness and efficiency for the business.

Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation provides Türk Telekom with the capability to manage storage centrally. For more agile integration with internal and partner applications as part of its microservices infrastructure, Türk Telekom is also in the process of implementing Red Hat 3scale API Management and Red Hat AMQ messaging platform. It is also planning on bringing in Red Hat OpenStack Platform as a foundation for its private cloud.
