SPAIN: At MWC, Samsung and Reliance Jio announced a joint project, “I&G (Infill & Growth) to upgrade current LTE mobile communication services across India by expanding both the current network capacity as well as network coverage.

The project sets a high benchmark for LTE services in India through wider coverage, in- building penetration and the highest speeds, regardless of the user’s location. Utilizing spectrum in the 850, 1800 and 2300MHz bands, it will enable seamless indoor and outdoor coverage in dense urban areas.

The project will also extend RJio’s reach in rural areas by expanding its reach to over 90% of the population.

The relationship between Jio and Samsung goes back to 2012, when the two companies signed a turn-key agreement covering the entire scope of network, ranging from equipment to establishment and maintenance services.

Previously, Samsung provided the LTE core, base stations and solutions required for VoLTE services, as well as massive deployment services for establishing a nationwide network for RJio. The two companies have successfully established the world’s largest greenfield LTE network.

“We successfully achieved 100 million subscribers in 170 days, making us the fastest-growing company in the world, and the numbers continue to rapidly grow. It was possible because we introduced a truly effective LTE service, Pan-India. We are committed to bringing game-changing digital experiences to India with superior ecosystems, mobile content, all-IP networks and ongoing process innovations,” said Jyotindra Thacker, President of Reliance Jio Infocomm.

“As Jio’s end-to-end LTE solutions partner, it is a great pleasure for Samsung to contribute to Jio’s tremendous success,” said Youngky Kim, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics. “The massive deployment of over a million cells across India is especially remarkable. We will strive to create new paradigms for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G by closely cooperating with Jio as a unified workforce.”

Samsung also enabled RJio to offer professional solutions such as Samsung VoLTE, Quality Monitoring and Analysis (VoMA) and Cognitive Traffic Monitoring and Optimizer. The tools monitor and optimize mobile data services, and have successfully contributed to enabling RJio to provide its subscribers with a stable and improved user experience.
