After dishing out 4G VoLTE in India, Reliance Jio has already set its sights on bringing 5G connectivity to the country. Jio and Samsung have partnered for this and made the announcement at the MWC 2017 in Barcelona on Tuesday.

Samsung announced its innovative ‘I&G’ (Infill & Growth) Project for Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd that will help expand the telecom operator’s network capacity as well as coverage.

The project will extend Jio services in rural areas by expanding its reach to over 90% of rural residents and also enable seamless indoor and outdoor coverage in dense urban areas.

Samsung previously provided the LTE core, base stations and solutions required for VoLTE services, as well as deployment services for establishing a nationwide network for Jio.


Samsung has also enabled Jio to offer a superior service to its users by providing professional solutions such as Quality Monitoring and Analysis (VoMA) and Cognitive Traffic Monitoring and Optimiser.

“We will strive to create new paradigms for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G by closely cooperating with Jio as a unified workforce," added Youngky Kim, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.

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.

Jio was India's first operator to introduce free-of-charge high-definition calls (VoLTE).
