The Founder

Born in 1976, Günal, in his early childhood, was mostly interested on electromechanical gadgets inside and outside the house more than anything else. Almost each and every electrical household appliance got once stripped down to the bone and put back together and ended up being repaired at a shop.

Together with the Whiz Kids (US TV Series broadcasted in 1984), he got attracted to computers. It is in this TV Show that he learned about modems and telecommunications.

Since then, he studies, practices, advises, designs, sells and implements commercial carrier-grade software and telecommunications solutions for customers with highest SLAs.
