Nokia has announced that it has won a multi-year partnership with Reliance Jio for the deployment of 5G equipment in India.
In accordance with the agreement, Nokia will provide base stations, MIMO antennas, and Remote Radio Heads from its AirScale range.
Following Airtel, the company has now successfully nabbed the comprehensive supply deal in India. Cellular network operators have been busy since the launch of 5G in India earlier this month as they attempt to live up to the high market expectations and provide high-quality service. This month, Reliance Jio started testing its 5G network in four Indian cities. In Mumbai, Kolkatta, Delhi, and Varanasi, solitary architecture was the foundation upon which the services were built.
Reliance Jio claimed to have solid partnerships with top network equipment suppliers back in August when it held its annual general meeting. By December 2023, the business hopes to have its 5G network completely cover all of India. Network slicing and machine-to-machine communications are two of the advanced 5G services that Reliance Jio plans to offer on its 5G standalone network.
According to Reliance Jio, it is happy to be collaborating with Nokia and will keep investing in cutting-edge network technologies. It claims to be certain that the partnership with Nokia would provide one of the best 5G networks in the entire world.
Nokia claims that the agreement represents a huge victory for the company in the crucial Indian market. Millions will now have access to high-end 5G services made possible by the AirScale portfolio thanks to the migration. Nokia claims that it anticipates a fruitful and protracted partnership with Jio.
