Jio 5G

Reliance Jio has just announced that it has rolled out 5G on the mmWave (millimetre wavelength) spectrum throughout all the telecom circles in India. With this, the telco has also met the minimum rollout obligations set by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) for the 5G spectrum acquired in the 2022 auctions. The last date to meet the minimum rollout obligations is August 17, 2023. Now Jio's enterprise customers in all 22 License Service Areas (LSAs) can utilise the mmWave 5G spectrum services. Jio acquired 1000 MHz of spectrum in the 26 GHz band for each circle during the 2022 spectrum auctions.




The true experience of 5G lies in the mmWave spectrum. However, it also has severe limitations. Because the 26 GHz spectrum has a very short range in coverage, telcos need to invest more amounts of money in the infrastructure just to cater to a small geographical area. But there are several benefits of it as well. With mmWave 5G, bandwidth delivered is in multiple gigabits, and the latency is ultra-low, ensuring zero lag.

Akash Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, said, "The benefits of 5G mmWave include extremely high bandwidth and low latency. This can give enterprises looking to deploy emerging and innovative applications faster speeds and less delay than previous wireless networking technologies."

Jio has also achieved the first-ever FR2 standalone (SA) mmWave tech rollout globally at a commercial scale. Also, it is worth noting here that the mmWave tech that Jio is using is indigenously developed. Jio already has customers for its mmWave 5G services.

Jio said that it has achieved speeds of up to 2 Gbps with its mmWave tech. The telco is driving the world's fastest 5G rollout in India, which is slated to complete by the end of this year.

"mmWave business solutions will expand the market for leased lines by providing equally dependable fixed-wireless services, thereby digitizing millions of small and medium enterprises with enterprise-grade connectivity and business solutions. This spectrum is capable of providing ultra-high-speed broadband of upto 2 Gbps," Ambani added.
