Netaş has localized the world performance champion server of global telecommunication technologies giant ZTE.
Netaş, Turkey’s 55-year-old local brand in telecom technologies, accelerated its localization efforts with its main shareholder ZTE.
Netaş produced ZTE’s server products R5300 G4 and ZTE R5300 G4X for the first time in Turkey, which broke records with their performance. Netaş brand local server was introduced at GSMA 2022 held in Barcelona with the participations of Deputy Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Dr. Ömer Fatih Sayan, Chairman of the Information and Communication Technologies Authority Ömer Abdullah Karagözoğlu, President of Europe & Americas of ZTE Corporation and Chairman of the Board of Netaş Aiguang Peng and Netaş Telecom Business Unit General Manager Bülent Elönü.
Deputy Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Dr. Ömer Fatih Sayan, at the meeting, said, “The heart of telecommunication in the world beats in Barcelona. When we look at the conjuncture in the world, we understand much better the importance of our vision of locality and nationality drawn by our President. One of the conditions we placed on ZTE when it acquired the majority stake in Netaş in 2016 that It was Netaş’s staying as a Turkish company and supporting domestic production in line with Netaş’s mission. We are glad to see the local server here today according this mission. We care about the cooperation between global companies and local companies. In our vision of 5G and beyond; local will be at the highest rate. We want ZTE and Netaş to increase their locality efforts together.”
Chairman of Turkish Information and Communication Technologies Authority (BTK) Ömer Abdullah Karagözoğlu, also said; “It is very important that we provide localization on the server side. I believe that being able to define the need for a server that can be shaped for future needs is a great added value for our industry.”
As ZTE, we will inspire the digital future of the near geography with Netaş
President of Europe & American Region of ZTE Corporation and Chairperson of the Board of Netaş Aiguang Peng said: “ZTE aims to “inspire the digital world” with our superiority in innovative telecommunication technologies, including 5G in the global market. Within this perspective, Turkey is a crucial market with its rapid adaptation to innovative technologies. Netaş, on the other hand, is very valuable to us with its deep experience in telecommunication technologies in the region. For this reason, we want to inspire the digital future of Turkey and the region together with Netaş.”
Peng also stated that; “we continue to deepen day by day in the Turkish telecommunication market with Netaş. In this process, we started to focus on our localization efforts. We offer localized technologies to Turkey by combining the know-how of ZTE’s innovative technologies with Netaş’s R&D expertise. In the last two years, the number of products having domestically manufactured certification, namely base stations, end-user products (modems), FTTx, and domestic servers, reached five. We believe that this number will increase soon thanks to the harmony we have achieved. By localizing different product types with the “Made in Turkey” label, Netaş’s support for Turkey’s national capital to stay in the country will increase. In the next step, our goal is to export these products to other countries in ZTE’s vast international network and where Netaş has a strong reputation.”
“Netaş is increasing its claim as a telecom producer again”
Netaş Telecom Business Unit General Manager Bülent Elönü said that; “Continuing its “domestic” and “localization” move in telecommunication technologies by establishing Turkey’s first private telecom R&D, Netaş transforms Turkey’s telecommunication infrastructure from the core to the backbone infrastructures of operators, from households to workplaces, with the most modern Technologies. After ZTE became our main shareholder in 2017, we entered a new era together to support the transformation of Turkey’s communication infrastructure.”
Elönü, gave the following information about Netaş and ZTE’s synergy; “We started to enter the backbone systems of operators, and we continue 5G tests. We installed one of the world’s first 120 commercial DWDM systems in Turkey. We have become a global pioneer in DWDM systems, which is expected to reach a market volume of 19 billion dollars with an annual growth of 11.30% until 2028. We are also carrying out Turkey’s largest IPTV infrastructure transformation project together with ZTE. While virtualizing Turkey’s largest fixed network, we are also starting the mobile virtualization business. We became the leader in the end-user devices market by far at the end of 2021, and introduced WiFi 6 to Turkey, and now we are localizing it.”
“Our last move is Netaş branded server“
Noting that the server and storage market in Turkey is close to 450 million dollars Elönü said that; “We believe Netaş server will bring momentum to the sector.”
He said that, “We have received local product certificates for five products so far including, modem VDSL HGW, FTTX Systems, Next Generation Base Station, Modem Wifi6 and server. We have always focused on the products with the highest performance and capacity in our localization efforts. For this reason, we have localized ZTE’s server products R5300 G4 and ZTE R5300 G4X in Turkey. These servers broke the world record in the performance tests of the most recent SPEC CPU (2017). Thanks to Netas’ R&D and its capabilities. We support Turkey’s vision of using domestic technology with our Netaş brand server, which is capable of operating in many environments that require high performance such as Virtualization, Cloud, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) with its advanced features.”
“It will be the backbone of critical sectors”
Elönü continue to said that; “Our server has a highly flexible, expandable, and scalable design for business-critical applications. It also offers the option to optimally blend processor, memory, storage, and graphics processors. This localized server will provide a local and robust backbone for telecom, finance, transportation, and defense sectors, which are critical sectors for our country. The Netaş server can provide the processing power of systems such as local smart cars and national combat aircraft, which are working with national and local technologies in our country, can be easily integrated, and work at high capacity without interruption. It can even be designed and configured to be embedded in devices in the future.”
