CDNetworks and Dora Telekom of Turkey Announce Strategic Partnership
San Jose, California and Istanbul, Turkey – December 15, 2010 – CDNetworks, the only global content delivery network with local expertise and infrastructure on six continents, including China, today announced a strategic partnership with Istanbul-based Dora Telekom. Under the terms of the agreement, Dora Telekom will deploy and sell the CDNetworks Web Performance Suite services to customers within Turkey. The agreement also broadens the reach of CDNetworks’ customers who seek to accelerate their delivery of content and applications into one of the fast-growing Internet markets in the world.
Internet usage in Turkey has grown exponentially in recent years, with more than 20 million Internet users as of the end of 2009. Turkish Internet users are highly engaged and have an average age of twenty-nine, making them a tremendous target audience for many Web-based businesses. In fact, Facebook ranks Turkey fourth among all countries for its number of registered users, and comScore ranks Turkey first among all European countries in terms of the number of hours spent online each month by Internet users.
“We’re excited to expand our infrastructure, services and sales capabilities into one of the fastest growing markets in EMEA”, said Robert Gribnau, CDNetworks’ Vice President of EMEA and Global Channels. “Turkey’s young and vibrant Internet users represent a tremendous opportunity for our website customers, particularly those that offer advertising, eCommerce, and engaging applications. In Dora Telekom we gain a strategic partner with deep knowledge of the market, culture and language. Customers benefit by having a local, trusted business partner that can meet their website and application performance goals, no matter where their website users are located.”
“By deploying CDNetworks’ cloud-based infrastructure into our datacenters, we have created the first local CDN in Turkey with a truly global reach. We now can offer a higher level of service to our customers that seek to optimize website performance for both local and global audiences,” noted Timucin Ögün, President at Dora Telekom. “Moreover, the combination of our advanced datacenter services with CDNetworks’ Web Performance Suite gives customers a wide range of options for providing compelling Web experiences to Internet users.”
