Reliance Jio has successfully deployed a SON solution powered by AirHop’s eSON360 product, called JioSON to quickly expand its network in a cost-effective way while providing a high-quality customer experience to its fast-growing subscriber base.
The latest software technology supports Reliance Jio’s pan-India LTE network, which is now serving over 100 million subscribers in the country. Reliance Jio, in a statement, said that part of its network’s success is attributed to a focus on automating the Jio broadband network, enabling rapid and effective configuration and optimization of Jio’s heterogeneous network.
Bharti Airtel and Vodafone, India's top two telecom operators have already deployed the technology to improve the overall network stability across the country.
“Traditional operators are typically slow to respond to customer demand, with long lead times for new services and capacity. Jio has been able to fundamentally change this paradigm by delivering broadband connectivity and a suite of rich media services and content to an unprecedented number of users in record time," said Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio.
“AirHop has been a great technology partner throughout our network launch where automation and self-healing were introduced to remove interference, offering higher spectral efficiency within the LTE network," Oommen added.
eSON360 powers Reliance Jio’s SON solution and enables Jio to quickly expand its network in a cost- effective way while providing a high-quality customer experience to its fast-growing subscriber base. eSON360 is a highly scalable platform is always responsive, resilient and elastic to the network environment, achieving a virtualized solution that fits well in SDN/NFV frameworks.
