Dronecell, a Turkcell technology, using the aerial base station on the drone can stream high speed and quality audio. During natural disasters, search and rescue efforts, or at areas hard to reach by car, Dronecell provides continuous mobile coverage and an efficient way for finding individuals.
"While continuing to invest in our mobile and fiber infrastructure, we also implement new technologies that operate on them. We launched “Dronecell”, Turkey’s first aerial base station, manufactured using domestic technology. Dronecell is capable of providing 4.5G service from a height of 120 meters across an area of 5km2. We expect it to play a crucial role in saving lives and providing uninterrupted communication, especially in the event of emergencies and natural disasters."
