Nokia executes one of world’s biggest 100G deployments for Reliance Jio

Finland’s Nokia said that it has executed one of the biggest 100G deployments in the world for Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio to help the telco handle the massive traffic growth fueled by the operator’s initiative to build broadband connectivity for all of India.

Nokia’s deployment of optical core and metro solution covers over 90,000 km across in India. The gear vendor’s transport network allows Jio to offer innovative, high-capacity services to underserved regions in India as well as a nationwide long-distance (NLD) service.

“In only 170 days, Jio has signed on 100 million new users. With growth rates of this magnitude we had to ensure we deployed the highest capacity, most resilient transport network to build out the 4G network. Nokia’s next-generation DWDM portfolio provides the ability to scale easily as Jio continues to expand the network to reach the underserved areas of India with digital services in key areas such as communication, education, healthcare, payments and multi-media entertainment,” Jyotindra Thacker, President at Reliance Jio, said.

According to the International Telecommunications Union, most of India’s population is still underserved with broadband penetration at less than 20%.

Recognising this massive growth potential, Jio deployed Nokia’s high-capacity transport network to offer high-bandwidth services such as video streaming, multimedia content distribution and cloud and business services to its rapidly increasing subscriber base.

“The government’s vision for digitization across the country, combined with Jio’s goal of making broadband a basic service for all citizens, means broadband penetration will grow quickly in India. The Nokia solution not only provides the speed and capacity necessary for this growth, but it also ensures a more reliable service for the customers. This deployment strengthens Nokia’s presence in India’s optical market where our foothold spans from metro to backbone networks,” Sam Bucci, head of Nokia’s Optical Business, said.

Nokia’s optical solution provides a scalable and resilient transport network to offer reliable high-speed broadband connectivity and communication services for both fixed and wireless users.

Reliance Jio has deployed Nokia’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch including 100G Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) capabilities enhanced with Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) intelligence to support capacity management and restoration. The new transport network supports the rapid deployment of new services as network demand increases.
