Reliance Jio announced its agenda to bring 5G network in India at Qualcomm 5G summit. Jio has partnered with Qualcomm to expand their “efforts to develop open and interoperable interface compliant architecture based on 5G solutions with a virtualized RAN. This work is intended to fast track the development and roll-out of indigenous 5G network infrastructure and services in India," Jio and Qualcomm said in a joint statement. 

Both the companies have also announced that they are in advanced stage of testing of the 5G project and have also successfully achieved speed over 1gbps. About the effects of bringing 5G to India, the companies said, “With 5G technology, users will experience the benefits of higher data rates, low latency communications and enhanced digital experiences across a wide array of connected devices, from 5G-enabled smartphones to enterprise laptops to AR/VR products to vertical IOT solutions."

 “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 realisation of Atmanirbhar Bharat for an inclusive 5G nation,” said Matthew Oommen, president of Reliance Jio Infocomm.

Reliance Jio will be advancing the technology by enabling 5G services across the country. We hope the pixelated screening, voice cuts, buffering etc. will all be in the former issues list after Jio advances to 5G.
