Jio has partnered with Ciena in future-proofing its national transport network with ‘Transport SDN’ capabilities.
Transport SDN will lay the foundation for an adaptive network that can scale with high efficiency and dynamically adapt to fast-changing capacity requirements and application demands.
Jio’s network is powered by Ciena’s multi-terabit optical technology that comes with a control plane that provides self-healing service restoration capabilities to support Jio’s pan-India 4G network core. This technology gives Jio a high-speed, highly resilient mesh network with unprecedented scale to support its surging subscriber base and subsequent data explosion – helping to fuel the digital revolution in India.
The architecture seamlessly integrates with Jio’s Automation Engine to enable a significant step toward realizing the full potential of multi-layer closed-loop automation. This engagement will enable Jio to achieve service agility at unprecedented scale, with the highest level of quality of experience across Enterprise and FTTx.
The new network framework will also give Jio more flexibility in launching new services and faster time-to-market. Another key aspect of this initiative will enable Jio to unleash the potential of its automation capabilities to custom build use cases that drive optimization and efficiencies across the network.
