The “Digital Transformation Summit ‘19” was held at the JW Marriott Hotel, with the collaboration of Capital Magazine and SAP, which is active in the field of corporate application and software.

Türksat CEO Cenk Şen, who spoke at the panel titled “Turkey’s Digitalization Strategy,” emphasized that due to the millisecond delays measured in fiber infrastructures, there is currently a trend towards the establishment of narrow band networks with low orbit satellites in 5G technology.

Şen pointed out that services through Türksat’s e-Government Portal were offered in an easy manner. He added, “We offer information from 578 institutions to 42 million people through the e-Government Portal. Currently, 3 million people on average carry out 2.7 transactions in the e-Government Portal. This means it oversees over 200 million transactions in a month.”

Şen who underlined the fact that Türksat currently owns three communication satellites, added that with these satellites 3.5 billion people across 118 different countries are reached. He also added that in order to reduce dependency on abroad they have started operations in the field of satellite as part of their R&D.
