Defence Turkey: First of all, could you please inform us about the history of ICterra, its products and capabilities focused on defence and security?

ICterra was established as a software R&D team within Siemens Turkey (then known as Simko A.Ş.) in Ankara, back in 1991. Over the past 20+ years, our team has developed deep know-how in different areas encompassing the ICT sector and completed numerous projects successfully, locally and globally. In 2000, ICterra became one of the global R&D centers of Siemens. In 2007, our R&D team was commercialized as Siemens Enterprise Communications (Siemens EC A.Ş.). In March 2013, Siemens EC became a 100% local firm as a result of a MBO – known as ICterra, which implies “the world of information and communication technologies.” Today, with our 100 employees, based in our 1400 m2 office space located in METU Technology Park, we continue to provide services for the defence and telecommunication sectors.
