By January 6th, 2018 AT 3:39 PM

Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio Infocomm is planning to soon launch enterprise services in the country, having cornered around 160 million 4G customers in the country since its launch in September 2016. According to a report in Hindu Business Line, the 4G entrant is planning to launch enterprise services like unified communications, Multiprotocol Label Switching (a protocol for high-speed telecom traffic) networks, Internet Protocol-Virtual Private Networks, cloud services, and managed video-conferencing, among others.

A company source told the publication that Jio had conducted a soft launch of the services this week and demonstrated the services. The person added that the 4G only telco is in the final phases of testing its enterprise offering, which is the definite logical step in its growth path.

“With most of the infrastructure, including optical fiber cables (OFC), towers and data centres, in place, it’s only a matter of time before the services go live,” the person was quoted as saying the publication.

In the enterprise space, Jio will be vying against players like Tata Docomo, Bharti Airtel, BSNL, Reliance Communications (RCom) and Tata Communications.

Reliance Jio Infocomm had last week entered into a deal with RCom for the acquisition of its assets, including spectrum, optical fiber network, and media convergence nodes, which will help the 4G entrant for a large scale roll-out of its wireless and fiber to home and enterprise services, Moody’s said in a statement.

As part of the transaction, Jio will acquire 122.4 MHz of 4G spectrum, 43,000 towers, 178,000 route kilometer of pan India optical fiber network and 248 media convergence nodes.

Jio already has about 1 lakh telecom towers and more than 2 lakh route km of fiber. Certain channel partners also confirmed Jio’s enterprise foray.
