Argela’s CEO Mr. Bülent Kaytaz was interviewed by Habertürk TV at the Mobile World Congress 2018. During the interview, Mr. Kaytaz spoke about Argela’s initiatives on the development of 5G technology.
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.
Argela was at the plenary meeting of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) in Lisbon where the first NSA 5G NR specs were approved. On behalf of Argela, Technology Director, Arda Akman provided input to the meeting, which determined the Non Stand Alone Architecture.
RAN Chair called the latest development “an Impressive achievement in a remarkably short time, with credit due particularly to the Working Groups”. The debate on Stand Alone Architecture is still ongoing however, this achievement for the advancement of 5G is considered to be ground breaking.
The 3GPP covers cellular telecommunications network technologies, including radio access, the core transport network, and service capabilities – including work on codecs, security, quality of service. 3GPP studies are conducted by member companies, in Working Groups and at the Technical Specification Group level.
On December 20, 2017, Argela attended the 34th National Informatics Assembly organized by the Informatics Association of Turkey (TBD). Argela’s Vice President of Telecom Solutions for Product Development, Mr. İsmail Bayraktar participated in the panel titled: “Turkey’s 5G Road Map: Domestic Technologies”.
During the panel, Mr. Bayraktar, spoke about Argela’s national and international accomplishments and goals under 5G and pointed out that Argela’s patents on ran-slicing, are written in the United States.
Mr. Bayraktar also talked about Argela’s national projects, Milat and ULAK. İsmail Bayraktar during the panel mentioned that Argela has worked on these projects extensively and has put in a lot of time and effort for both.
On December 12th, Argela attended the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers,(IEEE) COMDAY4, which took place at Gebze University. During the event, students who are mainly majoring in engineering had the opportunity to speak and listen to professionals.
Argela’s Technology Director of Telecom Solutions, Mr. Gökhan Karakuş spoke at the event where he talked about Argela and 5G, changes in the mobile telecommunications and 5G technologies.
Telefonica and Argela’s subsidiary in the USA, Netsia have completed the successful integration of Netsia’s Private LTE Demo Platform into Telefonica’s Global Network Labs located in Madrid.
The integration of Netsia’s programmable Software Defined Network (SDN)-based Radio Access Network framework ProgRAN into Telefonica’s Labs has proven that SDN/NFV techniques can be successfully applied to the RAN.
ProgRAN, which reproduces a Private LTE network with the ability to sub-divide the network into multiple slices at RAN level offers different performances, latencies, and radio resources to different sets of customers.

Argela has successfully deployed NPM / CEM solution to Digicel, Bermuda. The customer acceptance was granted to Argela on October 25th. Argela and its partner Yupana are also negotiating with Digicel group to deploy the same solution to the other 30 operators of the group.
Digicel group is a mobile phone network provider operating in 31 markets across the Caribbean, Central America, and Oceania regions.
On October 12th 2017, Argela attended the ONAP Mini Summit Closing Panel, which was organized within Layer123 SDN&NFV World Congress at the Hague, Netherlands. The participants of the panel consisted of representatives from various vendors, telecom operators and Netsia, and was moderated by Arpit Joshipura, GM of Networking, Linux Foundation. The panel’s main focus was the consumption of ONAP. During the panel, Netsia’s Bora Eliaçik talked about several use cases and implementation strategies for ONAP and stressed that end-to-end slicing is a critical feature of 5G technology. “We are proud to be receiving significant interest in our RAN slicing technology, ProgRAN. We are currently working on a number of trials and are planning to integrate ONAP and M-CORD for ONAP to become ready for end-to-end sliceable mobile networks.” said Eliaçık. Over 2,000 executives, decision makers, leaders and activists met during the 4 day event at the Hague where face-to-face knowledge about various subjects were exchanged.
Argela will be located at the Turkish Trade Center booth along with other Turkish ICT companies. at Concourse CC2, Stand 11A.
We hope to see you in Dubai.
Netsia participated at the first ever World Mobile Congress Americas between September 12-14 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. The Congress this year hosted more than 1,000 companies and 21,000 attendees from 110 countries. NETSIA attended the event with its Secure Software Defined Network solution for enterprises, ProgNET. ProgNET’s cyber self-defense capabilities along with its flexible routing, real time network discovery and network slicing capabilities were demonstrated at the Netsia booth. NETSIA’s programmable radio access network (RAN) ProgRAN solution was also present at the ONF booth. Attendees were able to experience ProgRAN’s features which include dynamically Programmable RAN and Profile Based Software-Defined Virtualization.
