Jio, Qualcomm in major tie-up for indigenous 5G tech

Reliance Jio 5G network hits 1 Gbps speed milestone; door shut on Chinese equipment vendors

October 21, 2020 / 10:29 PM IST

Reliance Jio and US-based Qualcomm will join hands to fast-track the deployment of 5G mobile internet based on homegrown technologies, putting India in an exclusive club of nations with the capability to offer superfast speeds of 1 gigabyte per second (Gbps) to users.

The partnership builds on the commitment by Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani, who announced in July that Jio was developing made-in-India 5G technology, giving the country control over coveted know-how that is the foundation of a digital economy.

The two companies also announced that they achieved speeds of 1 Gbps on Jio’s 5G solution using a Qualcomm platform. For illustration, what this means is that it will be possible to download a typical movie with a file size of one gigabyte in just one second.

The partnership also includes Radisys Corporation, a US subsidiary of Jio.
