Base Station

Title

4.5G

With the 4.5G system, users are provided with an end-to-end voice, data and mass streaming service solutions at anytime, anywhere, based on higher data rates compared to previous generations.

Details

It is aimed to maintain the security and emergency communication services needed by the public in a fast and uninterrupted manner through mobile phone operators with the 4.5G connection technologies. To this end, ULAK has established universal and commercial fields everywhere in Turkiye. More than 2.5 million citizens are served with uninterrupted and secure communication with ULAK 4.5G base stations.

It is foreseen that the capabilities gained in the 4th generation wireless communication technology will be an important gain and reference in the domestic and national production of later communication technologies. 4.5G ULAK base stations are planned to be used especially in 5G infrastructure.

5G

The 5th generation mobile network is defined as a new global wireless standard. It is a new type of network designed to connect virtually anyone and everything, including machines, objects, and devices.

Details

5G is a more capable unified platform than 4.5G. It is planned to be an integrated platform that not only to improve mobile broadband experiences, but also support new services such as mission-critical communications and IoT.

It is also capable of supporting locally all spectrum types (licensed, shared, unlicensed) and bands (low, medium, high), a wide variety of distribution models (from traditional macro-cells to hotspots), and new paths for interconnection.

Significantly low latency is expected to provide instant, real-time access with 5G. For example; there will be a 10x reduction in end-to-end latency up to 1ms.

It is predicted that 5G will continue to affect global economy. A new business volume of $22.8 million was created on this sector and its distribution. The landmark 5G technology is expected to develop rapidly over the next 15 years thanks to the $265 billion annual global 5G CAPEX and R&D investments, and reach full economic impact by 2035, supporting a wide range of industries and potentially reflecting up to $13.1 trillion in goods and services.

5G is designed with the goal of creating technology that can change our lives, including giving us faster download speeds, lower latency, and more capacity and connectivity for billions of devices. With 5G, the end user will be provided with access to new, enhanced experiences such as near-instant access to cloud services, cloud multiplayer gaming, augmented reality shopping, real-time video translation and collaboration.

Apart from these, concepts such as digital twin, VR technology, smart transportation systems, and IoT have also taken their place among the things that we will encounter in our daily life. Controlling this development will only be possible if technology is put into service with domestic means.

In addition to the knowledge and experience gained in 4.5G, the number of domestic and national base stations has increased considerably. With 4.5G ULAK base stations, access to all corners of Turkey continues. In order to use this power in 5G, products and components compatible with both mobile communication technologies are being developed.

World-class 5G patent development studies are also carried out within our organization. It is critical to establish technologies of the future today and to set the standards with a strong engineer staff and R&D studies. 5G will not only break new ground in communication technologies, but will also bring change and development in many areas of our lives, from education to health, from transportation to production.
