Reliance Jio Infocomm gets security clearance from DoT in its six circles

By December 25th, 2014 AT 12:48 PM

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has given security clearances to Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL) to start its 4G services in six circles. After getting the security clearances, now RJIL will start services in Kolkata, Karnataka, Bihar, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat circles.


However, DoT has asked the telecom operator to bridge the gaps in the lawful monitoring requirements and interception of data services, including those offered by Yahoo and Gmail. DoT has also asked RJIL to install security systems that would enable the government agencies to intercept e-mails, track chat IDs, internet protocol addresses and voice over internet protocol calls. DoT reportedly also wants to carry out certain tests after the launch to ensure proper interception and delivery capacity of the monitoring systems.

DoT has also assigned signalling point codes to Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd (RJIL) for launching its national long distance (NLD) and international long distance (ILD) services. It has been allotted the codes for both ILD and NLD services in Mumbai, Delhi, Karnataka and Kolkata.RJIL has pan-India 20MHz broadband wireless access (BWA) spectrum in the 2,300MHz frequency band in 22 telecom circles and 5-7MHz spectrum in the 1,800 MHz band in 14 circles which it plans to use for offering high-speed 4G services in 2015.

RJIL was the only operator to acquire pan-India 4G spectrum during the $8 billion BWA auction in 2010. The operator has since signed infrastructure sharing deals with a number of major players, including Indus Towers, Reliance Communications and Bharti Airtel’s infrastructure arm Bharti Infratel.
