- 5G customers will get 1 Gbps internet speed
- Spectrum for testing of 5G technology is not yet available in India
Qualcomm Technologies Inc. And Radices Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jio Platforms Limited (Jio), today announced that it has expanded its efforts to develop an open and interoperable interface compliant architecture based on 5G solutions with virtualized RAN. Through this work, both the companies aim to launch the infrastructure and services of the indigenous 5G network in India and pave the way for its development.
Qualcomm Technologies and Jio have also announced that they have achieved the milestone of achieving speeds of 1 Gbps on Jio 5GNR solutions by taking advantage of the Qualcomm® 5G RAN platforms. This achievement not only endorses Jio’s 5G capabilities but also makes Jio and India’s entry into the Gigabyte 5G NR product portfolio important.
With 5G technology, users will experience unprecedented data speeds, low latency communications, as well as enhanced customer digital experience on a variety of devices, from 5G-based smartphones to enterprise laptops to AR / VR products to vertical IoT solutions.
Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio Infocomm, said, “We are excited to be working with Qualcomm Technologies to develop a new generation of cloud-based 5G RAN technology that is truly open and software-defined. At the grassroots level, it will accelerate efforts to make the dream of a self-sufficient India a reality for manufacturing and as an inclusive 5G nation. “
Durga Malladi, 4G / 5G Senior Vice President and General Manager, Qualcomm Technologies Inc., said:
Jio has achieved 1 Gbps speed on the 5G NR product and is ready to further expand our efforts with Reliance Jio to launch and develop flexible and scalable 5G RANs. And it will play a key role in building capabilities where needed. “
Rajan Vagadia, Vice President, Qualcomm India Pvt. Ltd. and President, Qualcomm India, said, At a time when the demand for reliable, robust and powerful mobile experiences is growing across India, we expect a new wave of demand for 5G from consumers and industries such as manufacturing, healthcare and retail. Jio to provide affordable and versatile 4G network We are ready to work hand-in-hand with Indian customers on the journey of launching 5G infrastructure and services as it proves to be a game-changer. “
Jio’s innovation has led India to become the world’s largest mobile broadband customer. Jio is moving forward with an ecosystem of carrier-grade software-based RAN solutions designed to provide 5G services and experience across India and beyond with disassembled and virtualized 5GNR solutions.
The portfolio of Qualcomm 5G RAN platforms is designed to lay the foundation for a flexible, virtualized, scalable and interoperable cellular network infrastructure. The platform will provide a variety of support for feature support for a wide range of infrastructure categories and all frequency bands on the sub-6 GHz and mmWave spectrum, ranging from MIMO to all macro base stations with small cell.
