In order to roll out indigenous 5G network infrastructure and services in India, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Jio Platforms Limited (Jio) along with its wholly-owned subsidiary Radisys Corporation has announced their expanded efforts to develop open and interoperable interface compliant architecture based 5G solutions with a virtualized RAN.
Expressing excitement about working with Qualcomm Technologies in creating new generation cloud native 5G RAN technology, Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio Infocomm, said, “The development of secure RAN solutions with Qualcomm Technologies combined with Jio Platforms and scale provides the ideal combination for local manufacturing and for accelerating the realization of Atmanirbhar Bharat for an inclusive 5G nation.”
Furthermore, Qualcomm Technologies and Jio also stated that that they have reached over a 1 Gbps milestone on the Jio 5GNR solution by utilising the Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms. According to these companies, “This achievement not only supports Jio’s 5G credentials but also signifies the entry of Jio and India into the Gigabit 5G NR product portfolio.”
Asserting that Qualcomm Technologies aims to deliver cutting-edge technology for virtualized, flexible and interoperable 5G infrastructure across the globe, Durga Malladi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, 4G/5G, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., said, “We recently achieved over a 1 Gbps milestone on the Reliance Jio 5G NR product, leveraging our Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms, and we look forward to expanding our efforts with Reliance Jio to enable flexible and scalable 5G RAN deployments. Ecosystem collaborations like this play a critical role in allowing operators and industry verticals to quickly and easily add 5G network coverage and capacity where and when it is needed most.”
Using 5G technology, users will gain the benefits of higher data rates, low latency communications and enhanced digital experiences across a wide array of connected devices, from 5G-enabled smartphones to enterprise laptops to AR/VR products to vertical IOT solutions.
Jio’s innovation has spearheaded the transformation of India into one of the world’s largest consumers of mobile broadband. With disaggregated and virtualized 5GNR solutions, Jio is advancing the ecosystem of carrier-grade software-based RAN solutions that are designed to enable 5G services and experiences for all of India and beyond.
With an aim to provide a base for flexible, virtualized, scalable, and interoperable cellular network infrastructure, this portfolio of Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms is created as it offers support for a wide range of infrastructure categories ranging from macro base stations with massive MIMO to small cells. It also feature support for all key frequency bands on sub-6 GHz and mmWave spectrum.
