Turkey’s leading cellphone operator Turkcell and defense technologies company STM have signed an agreement aimed at digital transformation of the country’s industries, Turkcell said on Oct. 20.

According to the agreement, the two companies would support industrial firms’ digital transformation processes in the fields of smart factory, energy and transportation solutions, industry 4.0, cybersecurity and internet of things (IoT), Turkcell said in a statement.

The cooperation is aimed at increasing production efficiency, it said.

The digital transformation is expected to increase productivity by 10-15 percent, said Davut Yılmaz, STM’s general manager.

Turkcell’s CEO Kaan Terzioğlu said both companies want to contribute to digitalization especially in the industrial and related production areas.

STM, established in 1991, provides engineering, technical support, project management, technology transfer and logistics support services for the Turkish Armed Forces and the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM).

In Turkey, GSM-based mobile communication began when Turkcell commenced operations in 1994.

Since then, it has continuously expanded its services based on mobile audio and data communication.

Another Turkish telecommunication company, Türk Telekom signed a deal with General Electric (GE) Digital to explore collaboration in the area of the industrial IoT for the country’s industries.
