Turkcell is looking to cash in on its portfolio of digital services by offering them to other operators around the world.

The Turkish operator made the announcement at Mobile World Congress, where it also launched new connected car, smart agriculture and enterprise solutions.

Other operators will now be able to offer their subscribers the likes of chat service BiP, streaming application fizy and cloud storage solution Lifebox.

Turkcell claimed that offering the services, which are available via its Lifecell Ventures arm, could boost customer data usage and loyalty, improve revenues and boost ARPU.

The operator also unveiled three news solutions, including Kopilot, a connected vehicle monitoring system.

THS, which uses sensors to offer farmers data on environmental conditions, and Digital Cockpit - platform that provides enterprises with a realtime view of sales, marketing and HR data - were also launched.

Lifecell Ventures Chairman and Turkcell CEO Kaan Terzioglu said: “It is time to share our winning experience via Life-cell Ventures with the other telco operators around the world.

“We can only compete with OTTs that have reached billions of users in the world by combining the capabilities of telecom operators and OTT.

“At this point, our services such as fizy, TV+, BiP, lifebox and Dergilik have surpassed their competitors in Turkey. Now is the time to bring this experience to the telecom sector globally.”
