Encore innovations, prior to an auxiliary of Reliance Industries Limited were converged with Jio. The securing of Radisys further expands upon its 5G and IoT innovation capacity. These acquisitions accelerated Jio’s in-house development capabilities around open source technologies. NFV adoption, paving way for the development of IoT platforms and applications.
Having developed Reliance Jio its own 5G solutions would be able to bring a wide array of use cases. Like security and surveillance using drones, industrial IoT, and digitization in the agriculture sector.
The Telco recently informed the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and sought its approval to conduct 5G trials based on its own technology. It had previously given a separate presentation to the DoT to explain its technology and possible use cases.
Reliance Jio had also submitted separate applications for 5G field trials. It plans to preliminary 5G innovation. Works on use cases with all telecom gear merchants, including Samsung, Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei, and ZTE.
