Reliance Jio to Use Viom Networks’ Telecom-Tower Infrastructure

Reliance JIO Infocomm Logo_bigReliance Jio Reliance Jio will launch its services across India using telecom-tower infrastructure provided by Viom Networks. Under a Master Services Agreement, Reliance Jio will use Viom Networks’ Pan India Passive telecom infrastructure having a footprint of over 42,000 telecom towers.

Reliance Jio holds a pan-India Unified License and is currently building a network to offer next generation high-speed data services. The company believes that the Indian market is highly underserviced. There’s thus a deep demand undercurrent for reliable (4th generation) high speed internet connectivity, rich communication services, and various digital services on pan-India basis in key domains such as education, healthcare, security, financial services, government citizen interfaces and entertainment.

“From a conventional tower company, we are transforming ourselves as an innovation-driven, data-centric infra solutions provider,” said Syed Safawi, CEO, Viom Networks. We are delighted to partner with Reliance jio and offer our countrywide network infrastructure. Our consistent delivery of high network up time, on-time reliable project delivery capability, and optimal operation and a maintenance cost offer a great value package.”

Reliance Jio is part of the “Bay Of Bengal Gateway” Cable System, planned to provide connectivity between South East Asia, South Asia and the Middle East, and also to Europe, Africa and to the Far East Asia through interconnections with other existing and newly built cable systems landing in India, the Middle East and Far East Asia.

From less than 700 professionals a year back, the RJIL Jio team has grown rapidly to a national footprint of over 3,000 professionals today.

You can check this link about the phone spec: nokia.com/global/products/phone/lumia625/specifications/

*Its really unclear wheter Nokia Lumia 920/625/1320 will or will not support LTE in India. *The Nokia solutions page says that Indian Nokia Lumia model supports LTE on Band 3 but the LTE support feature is currently disabled and will be provided by a software update,but I really dont know if any such update would be rolled out. discussions.nokia.com/t5/Nokia-Lumia/which-Lumia-device-is-4G-LTE-in-India/td-p/2264487 *The wikipedia page says that there are two lumia 920 models that do not have LTE support and I would not be suprised if one of those two models came to India wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_Lumia_920 *A second report says that their is no… Read more »

*Bro Reliance Jio is gonna deploy LTE in band 40(2300 mhz) on a Pan-India Basis.But the good news is that in certain South Indian States as well as eastern and western states Reliance Jio has won 1800 mhz spectrum which comes under Band 3 and is reportedly supported by Nokia Lumias.In order to know if Reliance Jio has won 1800 mhz or Band 3 LTE spectrum in your circle you could refer to the February 2014 spectrum auction results.

*Although I cannot guarantee you that Indian Lumia models will support LTE.

Well guys I jst don’t understand why some guys are waiting for reliance gio desperately. First let them launch, see their services, plans, rates n SPEED. The network band in which reliance gio have been allocated is on 2300 mhz band. Technically there will be worst indoor coverage on this band. I wud wait for 4g services to mature first in india rather than have it ryt nw. As in india 4g services needs to get mature first. Even today most of d places n cities have nt yet get covered by 3G. So why so much hurry for 4g??… Read more »

@All, I don’t know why people are impatient for RJio 4G? Do you really need that much speed or do you have the devices ready to be used? Will you invest in handset or dongles if priced below average? I mean there is a hush hush just because people are expecting low priced Internet but let me make clear to you that RJio can’t price their plans more than 10% lower than current 3G/4G plans as this won’t make a business case for them. If price is not going to be too low and many of you already know this… Read more »
