Qualcomm Technologies and Reliance Jio Platform have now announced their expanded efforts to develop open-source and interoperable interface compliant architecture based on the 5G solutions with a virtualized RAN (Radio Access Network).
This work accelerates the development and roll-out of indigenous 5G network infrastructure and services in India.
Mathew Oommen, president, Reliance Jio Infocomm, said
, “We are excited about working with Qualcomm Technologies in developing new generation cloud-native 5G RAN technology that is truly open and software-defined. The development of secure RAN solutions with Qualcomm Technologies combined with Jio Platforms and scale provides the ideal combination for local manufacturing and for accelerating the realization of Atmanirbhar Bharat for an inclusive 5G nation.”
Durga Malladi, senior vice president, and general manager, 4G/5G, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. said
, “Qualcomm Technologies aims to deliver cutting-edge technology for virtualized, flexible, and interoperable 5G infrastructure across the globe. We recently achieved over a 1 Gbps milestone on the Reliance Jio 5GNR product, leveraging our Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms, and we look forward to expanding our efforts with Reliance Jio to enable flexible and scalable 5G RAN deployments. Ecosystem collaborations like this play a critical role in allowing operators and industry verticals to quickly and easily add 5G network coverage and capacity where and when it is needed most.”
Qualcomm and Jio 5G services
The companies have achieved around 1Gbps milestone on the Reliance Jio 5GNR solutions, leveraging the Qualcomm 5G RAN platforms.
Qualcomm has also revealed
a full portfolio of 5G infrastructure semiconductor platforms. The company said that the systems are designed for broad deployment scenarios, ranging from the macro base stations with the massive MIMO to micro base stations with the compact designs, to scale the cellular ecosystem transition toward virtualized and interoperable radio access networks (RAN).
Qualcomm is also introducing three new 5G RAN platform offerings – Qualcomm Distributed Radio Unit Platform, Qualcomm Radio Unit Platform, and Qualcomm Distributed Unit Platform.
In the month of July, Qualcomm has infused around INR 730 crore in Jio Platforms. With the deal, the companies said that they aim to roll out advanced 5G infrastructure and services in India.
