As natural disasters have become more common and intense lately, infrastructure is being damaged and new solutions are required. It is important to use existing communication tools in place. Satellite technology has many useful uses for minimizing the impact felt from these devastating events.


In order to establish communication with different regions in the same geography in the event of a disaster, uninterrupted communication to the Internet via satellite antennas, data transfer through satellite technologies, which are the common areas of use of all communication tools, can be provided from anywhere and uninterrupted technology transfer.


A continuous and uninterrupted access to the broadband internet system can be provided from anywhere in the world with satellite antennas. Satellite antennas are not just a means of watching TV.


In many parts of the world, for example in New York, people may prefer satellite internet. In 2010, there were 450 thousand satellite internet preferences in this city alone. Or, dish antennas are used to access the internet in places where cable and fiber still cannot go. Cable and fiber connection is not required to access the internet network accessed by dish antennas. Satellite internet can be preferred as an alternative to cable and fiber for individual use.


Satellite internet technology has the power to receive and send important data by simply providing energy without any hindrance when a disaster occurs.


Satellites sit securely above the earth’s atmosphere and provide communication to address wide geographical locations, there will be no obstacle in front of them to interrupt communication.


When broadband internet is reached, it will be possible to communicate information with each other in data centers, which are the common meeting place of all networks.


Instead of damaging the underground cables in an earthquake, tsunami, flood or hurricane and waiting for their repair process, emergency satellite systems will provide communication immediately.


Broadband satellite internet systems are VSAT applications. With the right planning and application, many lives and property can be saved in an emergency by communicating.


In particular, VSAT satellite systems, which are easily installed and commissioned in the event of an earthquake, will immediately transmit the status of the region or, if there is a fire, the images or the degree of coldness to the relevant people.


VSAT KA-KU band satellite internet systems allow teams to establish emergency communications even when terrestrial forms of communication are down. In addition, they are very suitable technologies for continuous communication in mining, farm or sea areas where there is only electricity and no infrastructure in the normal period.


The satellite communication system consists of two main elements, the ground station and the satellites in space. The communication between them is provided by the so-called satellite dish antennas.


The biggest advantage of satellite communication systems is that they provide simultaneous communication to many users within the global coverage area in locations where there is no terrestrial infrastructure, and they become almost the only communication source in natural disasters.


All of this demonstrates that satellite technology is a vital component of disaster relief efforts today and in the future.


Various organizations have been formed for the commissioning of this important system in the event of a disaster. Manpower and knowledgeable manpower are needed not only for the existence of the system, but also for its activation in the event of a disaster.


The address and contact information of the people who are given pre-disaster training are collected in one center or even in several centers, and this information is also available for use by international aid organizations.


In our region, TUYAD carries out these training activities and has directed previously trained VSAT installers to the region in the last earthquake. Now, by training more experts, many people who will put the systems into operation in a disaster that may occur all over Turkey have already started to be registered in the system.


NASA launched the Earth Science Disasters Program in 2006 to use its key space-based assets to save lives and property in times of crisis. They analyzed the information from his satellites.


As you can see, it is possible to monitor and study a wide variety of disasters via satellites. Governments and private companies around the world are using technology to provide targeted, efficient assistance to disaster areas. As the consequences of climate change increase, satellites, along with data-collecting analytics software, will become more effective at predicting natural events and subsequent relief efforts.


TUYAD has been a trusted name in the satellite industry for 23 years. Our non-profit organization is an association where very important brands of our country come together and organizations that have a voice in various countries of the world are members.


During a disaster, of course, experts are needed to work on the rescue of the wrecked. Health teams and fire extinguishers are also needed. Security forces are also needed. Satellite technology experts have also been included in these needs. And we will continue to support our existence in this field voluntarily.

“The position gap in the sector is diversifying and the gap is growing. Recruitment has already begun.”


Software Engineer…

Information Security Analyst…

Software Developer…



Our call to young people is to study in engineering.


The direction of our country and the world is clear. Telecommunication, communication and information technologies are the guarantee of our future. I invite our young people with innovative ideas to our sector in order to realize their dreams.


Don’t just be part of a business plan. If you can, establish your own business that you will direct with your ideas. We will always be your supporter.


Everything starts with an idea. We need new ideas for an invention that will make something easier, faster and more economical. These ideas will become reality with software. Start off with brand new and very possible ideas, such as how a robot vacuum can turn into a robot and a life partner in every home.


Our industry needs ten thousand software engineers today, and a hundred thousand software engineers ten years from now. The chances of young people who will work in all positions in informatics and are capable of solving complex problems are very high.


Especially software developers, with the excellent advantage of engineering, make all processes from the simplest to the most complex better and more economical. Every innovation introduced becomes a function of the whole world without recognizing the borders. Every moment of life has been informatics and technology and will continue to do so. You can see this effect even when you look around.


When you start to understand all the job positions that seem complicated to you now, you will realize that it is not so complicated. All innovations always start with needs-oriented dreams by product developers. Not inventing, just developing; to renew the invention. Trust yourself and start your dreams of improving your current social area with all the smart products you already have at hand. Set out from here and see where you will reach.


The world’s top software developers started just by playing games and had no school careers. With the innovation, they offer code components that work in all countries to the convenience of people.


Even hackers made their work legal and settled in anti-hacker positions. There are great business opportunities in our industry. Each of our companies has a software developer position gap and this gap is growing every day.


If you’re still working somewhere and you’re feeling burnt out, your age and education don’t matter. You can only work on this subject if you have the ability.


Even this has been researched. In America, 3% of self-employed people quit their current job and became a software developer. It is predicted that this ratio will continue to increase.


Being a software engineer is a great feeling in many ways, especially during this period. Not only in Turkey, but all over the world, there are many positions that are currently short of workers. You can work from home without changing country. My advice is to do your own business or continue to work in corporate companies where you can be the happiest. Recently, only in our sector, job opportunities are offered to our engineer candidates with reservations from their student years. Even this is very valuable in terms of motivation.


Of course, we also have software developers who changed jobs a lot with complaints from industry employees. The first reason is salary. Foreign exchange profitable business offers are attractive due to the fact that the current currency is melting at any time. The second is the inability to renew the technical infrastructure and the increase in difficulties, the absence of innovative ideas, monotony and most importantly the option to work remotely.


The second most needed area will be information analysts. Processing the data, determining the need, taking precautions. All will be determined by analysts. If there is no analyst, the data has no value. This job, which our companies have begun to realize, will soon become an indispensable position. Every company has to get consultancy on this issue. Otherwise, the need cannot be met and the result of the supply-demand multiplier will not be known.


We must convince our youth to notice innovations in the sector as soon as possible and how valuable their ideas are. NGOs and all public institutions should be the locomotive of the sector in this direction. We hope that the training of IT workers, whose shortage is increasing day by day, will be completed by being supported by schools and vocational trainers.


Our association TUYAD will be happy to give full support to all software developers and candidates who work, have ideas and are motivated. You can contact us to start your own business or to work in a company. Your job is ready. Our experts are waiting for you to help you.

TV industry and trade monitoring report

The new issue of Digital Life Magazine has been published. Our magazine, which has published its 20th issue, includes the subject of 5A satellite. You can click the link below to read the magazine online.

Terrorism or terrorism is the pressure, intimidation and use of all means against target groups determined to achieve economic goals.


Almost all of the trade sites in our country have foreign partnerships or ownership and unfortunately, there is a trade sanction terror by applying high commissions to our companies.


In the e-commerce market, uncontrolled store commission fees and additional expense charges are applied without question and arbitrarily.


The ever-increasing cost rates of the competitive market and e-commerce shopping, which is especially preferred during the pandemic period, make it difficult for the shopkeepers.


It is not easy for companies trying to sell products to create a pricing strategy for their products. When many high-rated costs overlap, the price offered to the end consumer becomes very high. As a result, the seller uses different ways to eliminate its cost. These ways; sometimes it is to show its products in features that it does not have or to escape from various tax factors. Otherwise, it is almost impossible to put forward a competitive price.


Although rival companies or brands have difficulty in understanding these very competitive prices, they are obliged to sell with these prices. The result is clear; Our companies are damaged and shut down. However, e-commerce sites continue to offer sales services with new partners.


Although the e commerce market works, it may not work for our companies looking for an honest and worthwhile profit margin.


If there are no merchants who can truly understand the just competition rules in the country where e-commerce sites exist, this situation should be very well controlled by the relevant institutions of the state and the profit margin of the sites should not exceed certain rates.


Unfortunately, especially the companies that exist in the Middle East and this nearby geography are not honest and sensitive to their competitors. With only sales-oriented thinking, many of our companies are in danger of disappearing in e-commerce. These channels, where our sellers cannot create just competition, must be urgently regulated by the state.


In e-commerce, there is no fixed commission fee, no additional cost restrictions to be added to the pricing structure, no fee scale to be added to the cargo, no refund and penal sanction limit, no fixed rate deduction for every transaction, no problem of who will pay the tax on the commission invoice. The only thing that exists is the sanctions that will allow the e-commerce site to make more profit every day.


Are you against it? No problem. It is easy to find a vendor anyway!


In the past, the biggest nightmare of the sellers were moneylenders and they received a monthly interest rate of 5%. Now, e-commerce sites have become the worries of the merchants. The most innocent gets a 20% commission fee.


Although some e-commerce sites may seem free at first, they now receive commissions from both the buyer and the seller. This creates unfair gains in the taxation of bilateral commissions and commissions.


Below you can see a table comparing commission rates and costs of some of the major ecommerce markets.


E-commerce site Minimum total commission rates
N11 %22
Hepsi Burada %22
Gitti Gidiyor %22
Trendyol %25
PTT % 20


Some e-commerce sites cut a total of 45% from the sale of electronic devices and accessories. This ratio occurs in the sum of different transactions. Your chance to appeal is already disappearing with the contracts you initially signed.


Apart from these commission rates, we have to constantly pay OPPORTUNITY, CORPORATE and ADVERTISEMENT fees, and sales have to be made over the specified shipping company and fee.


E-commerce marketplaces have set commission rates for product sales in different categories and reflect these commission rates to companies on sales including VAT. Of course, the tax liabilities of vendors increase here.


After all these negativities, the small amount of profit left to the seller will be spent on other taxes, personnel expenses and other expenses.


While these factors left the tradesmen in a difficult situation, with the law numbered 7256, which was approved at the General Assembly of the Turkish Grand National Assembly and approved by the President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and published in the Official Gazette, certain rates of tax exemption are applied to individuals and companies engaged in e-commerce as of January 1, 2021. These laws are the elements that will destroy the tradesmen.


The fact that sites such as Amazon, Ebay, Airbnb and Alibaba, which have been famous abroad, have started selling in our country due to these free trade elements.


Our companies that enthusiastically enter e-commerce need to think carefully about the advantages and disadvantages and how they can be applied to their current business goals. While e-commerce may initially seem like it will solve all your business problems, moving from a physical location to an online store has its drawbacks, and these disadvantages can even lead to the end of your established company.


As a result, we need evolving technology and e-commerce for the existence of the market and the simultaneous maintenance of brands, but e-commerce with moderate commission rates will be more appropriate.


Commission rates should be low until a point where profits are made. With the number of customers growing day by day, all of us should always gain. Our recommendation will be a 10% fixed commission rate with all costs included.


To sum up;

E commerce is indispensable. As the main income of brokerage, commission is the most popular business model in the modern market. However, the fact that the commission is not permanent and disturbing will bring success.


Although our companies are keen on e-commerce, they must admit from the outset that they also have disadvantages. When all parties accept that these situations are a problem, we will overcome e-commerce problems and have a say in the global market.
