Reliance Jio will be the first to launch full fledged 5G services in the country, says Mukesh Ambani, CMD, Reliance Industries Limited speaking at the 44th Annual General Meeting.
“We are confident of being the first to launch full-fledged 5G services. And because of our converged, future-proof architecture, Jio’s network is uniquely positioned to quickly and seamlessly upgrade from 4G to 5G,” said Mukesh D. Ambani.
“To develop an end-to-end 5G ecosystem we are now working with leading global partners to develop a full range of 5G-capable devices. The Jio 5G technology is well positioned to create compelling applications for consumers and enterprises spanning healthcare, education, entertainment, retail and other key verticals of the economy,” commented Ambani.
Reliance Jio has developed a 100% home-grown and comprehensive 5G solution which is fully cloud native, software defined, and digitally managed. The company has taken tremendous strides in maturing Standalone (SA) 5G technology, which signifies a quantum leap to the next frontier of wireless broadband.
“Together with its partners, Jio has tested the Jio 5G solutions in India and has successfully demonstrated speeds well in excess of 1 GBPS. Our ‘Made in India’ solution is comprehensive, complete and globally competitive,” added Ambani.
The entire 5G Standalone Network has been installed in Jio data centres across the nation and also at their trial sites in Navi Mumbai.
On the application side, Jio is developing a 5G enabled solution with Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital for Connected Ambulance application. With real-time, high-fidelity telemedicine and remote doctor access, each Connected Ambulance can become a virtual extension of a hospital emergency room even while on the move.
The company is also developing applications with Reliance Foundation schools to use 5G to deliver immersive and interactive AR/VR content to students and classrooms making the learning process a delightful, memorable and enriching experience.
Once the 5G network and services are proven at India scale, the company has plans to export Jio 5G solutions to other telecom operators across the world.
