In India, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries announced Jio 5G network services at its 45th Annual General Meeting. For deep indoor coverage, the company says its 5G services have the ideal mix of frequencies, including 3500MHz mid-band, 26GHz millimetre wave, and 700MHz low-band. According to Jio, its 5G network services will be high-quality, highly affordable, and cover hundreds of locations nationwide. Over the existing 4G infrastructure, 5G radio signals are said to be delivered.
In India, Jio has officially launched 5G services. By Diwali, major cities such as Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, and Delhi will begin rolling out the service. In phases, the network will expand to cover the entire country by December 2023. It claims to be the world’s fastest 5G rollout plan. Jio’s 5G network will not depend on the 4G network and will be stand-alone.
With standalone 5G services, users can experience low latency, massive machine-to-machine communication, 5G voice, edge computing, network slicing, and the metaverse. Jio has committed Rs 2 lakh crores to build a pan-India 5G network. With Jio’s end-to-end 5G stack, which is cloud-native, software-defined, and digitally managed, even advanced features like quantum security are supported.
