Hasan Sul said:
“As Vodafone, we dream of a more digital Turkey in 2030. When we say 5G, we are talking about a digital transformation that will change the way of doing business with innovative approaches in many sectors and create added value in economic and social fields. Therefore, Turkey’s transition to 5G should not be seen as a mere technological development. If we look at it from a broader perspective, it is a “an important step towards the transformation of a fully digitalized country. We care and want the 5G tender to take place as soon as possible. In this sense, we believe that it is very important to allocate resources spectrum through licensing processes that encourage investment We believe that while bidding is not short-term, temporary or long-term allocation of certain frequencies that the industry may have need to operators should be carried out. Given the increasing use of data and the changing needs of our customers, in the event of a postponement of the 5G tender, new frequencies will be required in order to provide a more efficient, fast and high-speed service. ability. This will allow us to both increase the efficiency of our pre-5G investments using the opportunities of technological advancements and to provide better service to our customers. Achieving the allocation of additional spectrum without waiting for the 5G tender will facilitate technological transformation and bring speed and predictability to the sector in the transition process.
A special stage was set up at the stadium for the “Vodafone 5G April 23 Concert” held at Vodafone Park. Nil Karaibrahimgil, who sang his songs from Vodafone FreeZone Studio, was connected to the stadium stage and the orchestra performing live on the stage as a hologram on Vodafone 5G, which has up to 10 times lower latency to that of 4.5G.

5G INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE 3700-3800 MHZ BAND
A 5G infrastructure using the 3700-3800 MHz band has been installed at the relevant locations as part of the trial permit for the concert organized in 5G at Vodafone Park. The traffic from said infrastructure was carried over the fiber infrastructure, which is very important for 5G. The possibilities offered by 5G have been tested using C-band frequencies, one of the most important 5G bands. Thanks to the high bandwidth in C-band, holographic images are transmitted in high quality, while delay times are minimized by the combination of fiber and 5G. In this way, an uninterrupted experience has been offered to all viewers through 5G technology.
