Mumbai: Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani on Wednesday announced that Jio is developing a 5G telecom solution.

“It will be ready for trials as soon as 5G spectrum is available and can be ready for field deployment next year,” Ambani said at Reliance Industries’ annual general meeting.

 

The announcement comes amid news that the United Kingdom, following the lead of the United States, has banned Huawei from its telecom networks and will be phasing out reliance on the Chinese companies’ infrastructure by 2027. India too has been facing pressure to leave Huawei out of 5G trials.

Jio Platforms, with over 20 startup partners, has developed technologies in 4G, 5G, cloud computing, devices and OS, big data, AI, AR/VR, blockchain, natural language understanding and computer vision, he said.

“Using these technologies, we can create compelling solutions across multiple industry verticals like media, financial services, new commerce, education, healthcare, agriculture, smart cities, smart manufacturing & smart mobility,” Ambani said.

 

In the next three years, Jio will connect half a billion mobile customers, a billion smart sensors and 50 million home and business establishments, Ambani said.

“We have fully kickstarted five accelerators of growth of digital connectivity: Mobile broadband, JioFiber, Jio’s enterprise broadband, broadband for SMEs, and Jio’s Narrowband Internet-of-Things (NBIoT),” he added.
