Argela has Successfully Delivered its Software Defined Networking (MİLAT) Project to SSM

On December 22, 2017, Argela successfully completed and delivered its “Development of Software Defined Network (SDN) Technologies, (MİLAT) Project” to the Turkish Under Secretariat for Defense Industries (SSM).

The MİLAT Project has been developed to provide an End-to-End Software Defined Networking (SDN) & Network Function Virtualization (NFV) based solution that can be utilized in military, public safety and commercial communication infrastructures enabling dynamic cybersecurity as well as cyber defense mechanisms. Within the project SDN Controller, Virtual SDN Switch and SDN Network Applications have been developed and integrated with an NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO) Platform. The project will reduce dependency on security-critical communication infrastructures of vendors with its security based sensitive dynamic configuration abilities.

After 2 years of hard work, Argela is proud to have completed the MİLAT Project, which has been categorized by the SSM as one of the projects delivered entirely without any shortcomings.
