Reliance Jio Developing ‘Extraordinary Cloud’


By Zia Askari

As the company moves fast towards launching its 4G LTE services in India, it is set to redefine a number of technology led delivery mechanism for the enterprise community, including a massive telco cloud infrastructure.

“We are in the process of developing an extraordinary cloud ecosystem which will be bigger than even the Amazon cloud. We sincerely believe that moving forward, cloud will be integrated in almost everything that an IT or telecom ecosystem does. It will become the primary building block of communications infrastructure and create new set of standards for delivering enterprise customer SLAs in cloud environment,” explained, a high ranking source from Reliance Jio on conditions of anonymity.

With telcos hinging their growth on data services, cloud computing is surely a big winner to create a big differentiation in the market and a number of telcos in India are putting their cloud infrastructure in place in order to cater to the growing computing needs for an enterprise customer. Reliance Jio being a green field operator, will have no legacy to carry forward and hence carry a big advantage of offering next generation technology to its customers.

“With such a powerful cloud infrastructure, we can look at providing customized customer network for enterprise. It was not possible before, but now it will be possible for us to provide customer specific network where some customers may want only data, or video or some other network service,” he adds on.

Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL), a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), is the first telecom operator to hold pan India Unified License. RJIL holds spectrum in1800 MHz (across 14 circles) and 2300 MHz (across 22 circles) capable of offering fourth generation (4G) wireless services. It is going the LTE way to offer 4G services. It is expected to launch its services by end of this year.

RJIL is setting up a pan India telecom network to provide to the highly underserviced India market in key domains such as education, healthcare, security, financial services, government citizen interfaces and entertainment.
