Reliance Jio To Rollout 4G Services Across India Using RCOM’s Intra-City Network

By April 7th, 2014 AT 1:03 PM

Reliance Jio Infocomm and Reliance Communications Ltd. have announced the signing of a Master Services Agreement for sharing of RCOM’s extensive intra-city optic fiber infrastructure. Under the terms of the agreement, Reliance Jio Infocomm will utilize RCOM’s nationwide intra-city fiber network for accelerated roll-out of 4G services in India.

RCOM’s intra-city optic fiber network extends to nearly 500,000 fiber pair kilometres, across the top more than 300 cities and towns in India.

This 3rd agreement further strengthens the comprehensive framework of business co-operation between Reliance Jio Infocomm and Reliance Communications, following the inter-city optic fiber sharing agreement signed in April 2013, and the nationwide telecom towers infrastructure sharing agreement signed in August 2013.

Reliance Jio is part of the “Bay Of Bengal Gateway” Cable System, planned to provide connectivity between South East Asia, South Asia and the Middle East, and also to Europe, Africa and to the Far East Asia through interconnections with other existing and newly built cable systems landing in India, the Middle East and Far East Asia.

A Happy Geek and a Network Research Engineer with a really cool day job…
