One of the biggest events of the year, which has witnessed the participation of some of the biggest names from the telecom industry and the electronics industry is the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) 2019. On its first day of the event, we got to see some grand unveils from the brands and with the second day ongoing today, the streak of presentations and demonstrations continues. Reliance Jio, on Monday, showcased the Video Call bot at IMC 2019, but today the telecom operator has showcased yet another important use case in partnership with Samsung. In collaboration with Samsung Networks, Reliance Jio has built the world’s largest green-field and all IP based 4G LTE network, which supports over 340 million LTE subscribers as of August 2019. At the event, the two companies present new business opportunities using 5G NSA mode, with advanced 4G LTE and 5G technology used in combination as a dual-connected mode network. These will demonstrate how innovations from the latest technology can benefit consumers, enterprises and society.

Reliance Jio and Samsung Partner Up to Bring 5G Use Cases

Mathew Oommen, President of Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, remarked about this, “We as Jio, working closely with key partners like Samsung will ensure that we continue to help India leapfrog traditional technologies by advancing the existing 4G all-IP infrastructure and leverage the end-to-end fiber, 5G, and IoT ecosystems towards a digital infrastructure platform. This digital platform will deliver on the aspirations of all Indians, our businesses, and the emerging digital society that is fundamental to accelerating the digital economy and ensuring digital freedom for India.”

Further, Paul Kyungwhoon Cheun, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics said, “Samsung has been working in close cooperation with Jio to bring a digital transformation including the transition to 4G throughout India for over seven years. Samsung and Jio will continue to join forces in bringing next-generation innovation across the country, harnessing the full potential of 5G in driving further growth of a ‘Digital India’.”

Reliance Jio 5G Use Cases: Virtual Classroom and More

In partnership with Samsung, Reliance Jio has come up with the use cases of a 5G network and its live applications which will bring value to the already existing network across India. The trials will feature solutions from Samsung Networks’ 5G product portfolio, including its 3.5GHz solution for 5G Massive MIMO Unit (MMU), its 28GHz Access Unit (AU) and CPE device, its virtualised radio access (vRAN) and core, and 5G mobile devices.

As noted by Reliance Jio in its release, the demonstrations at IMC 2019 will include Virtual classrooms, which will allow attendees to watch 360-degree virtual lecture taken from a classroom in Jio’s Reliance Corporate Park (RCP) in Mumbai, Massive Full High-Definition (HD) Content Streaming which will show FHD video streaming on multiple smartphones (Galaxy S10 5G) simultaneously and 4K video streaming using multiple 5G tablets, which will showcase the unparalleled entertainment experience powered by 5G.

Public Safety Use Case on 4G LTE Network

The companies in collaboration will also showcase “public safety network over LTE” featuring Mission- Critical-Push-To-X (MCPTX) communication. Conceptualised as “OneNet”, a potential India’s Emergency Communication Network, this will enable first responders to connect with each other using a broadband network in a controlled and “geo-fenced” manner. Reliance Jio also noted that by highlighting the application of LTE which can be put to use for real-time streaming of videos and high-definition images of scenes while there is an emergency, it would enable the multilateral communications which can be connected at once to transfer video, images and voice simultaneously using multicast technology. Jio also highlighted that since it has the most extensive LTE network across India, MCPTX for PS-LTE would be among the most effective ways to maximise the current LTE network to serve public safety for over 1.3 billion people.

Companies like Reliance is against innovation in India. Despite being wealthiest they refuse to innovate even little things on their own – proof is if you visit their sprawling offices which are spread like huge campuses there are no libraries or research centers just clerks and their bosses in their cabins. Their main motive is to use money and power to import latest and create monopoly here.

Oh ho!! You don’t know India is getting the lowest data rate (for the VIPs it mean the cost/GB; for you & me it means data/second).

So you & I belong to the anti-national community. Don’t know whether TelecomTalk think us as anti-social or not!!

Apparently, Jio isn’t a show off like Airtel. Ambani loves to do things quietly and make everyone aware through word of mouth.

I thought you were Happy with your Ethernet Express, then why did this Favouritism? Everyone knows what is Jio and what’re they upto.

I am, I hardly use Jio though, except when I’m outside. I can’t really stay in the house all day xD

But seriously though, people are crying about Jio only because of the slow speeds. That’s thanks to the TRAI/DoT as they’re delaying the auctions every damn time. It should’ve been held in September 2017, but they delayed it to 2018, and again to 2019, and now another delay to Jan 2020.

If you’re worried about the 6p/m, that’s again on TRAI. They said in 2017 that they’re gonna scrap it off on 31st December 2019, but now they’re extending it for 2 years. The government keeps f’ing up every time.

You can’t blame only TRAI for the Jio’s present situation. They’re also somewhat liable to this. As BSNL being the most gradually moving operator start refarming their spectrum for 4G and not 3G, Jio would’ve definitely come up with something beneficial for the Customers to tackle the Customer Policies of Incumbents but to my dismay Jio has also joined the Cartel. Jio is at fault equally with TRAI, they can’t waive off their liability for providing good Services to the customers.

You have any idea what BSNL has done? They just converted 5MHz of 3G to 4G. What else could Jio do when they don’t have any 3G spectrum? Recently, Jio enabled 4×4 MIMO on bands 3 and 40. Now they’ll have to enable 256QAM, but most mid to low range handsets with cat4, cat6 modems don’t support 256QAM. So we won’t feel any speed improvements. Some have reported getting almost 100Mbps on band 40 in the stations like cst, or maybe it was churchgate, not sure. So Jio can’t do much without more spectrum in hand. Jio is helping customers… Read more »

Yes, its true. Fully agree with you @kiran. I’m getting average 15 to 30mbps at my place due to nearby small cells that had been installed due to my complaint earlier.

Recently I have tested both airtel and vodafone at my place and their 4g speed is like 3 and 1 mbps respectively and though Airtel is having volte, vodafone volte is nowhere to be seen.
