Nokia said that it has provided its optical core and metro solution for pan-India 4G LTE network to handle the massive traffic growth fueled by the Jio’s initiative to build broadband connectivity across India. Spanning 90,000 km in one of the biggest 100G deployments in the world, the transport network allows Jio to offer high-capacity services to underserved regions in India as well as a nationwide long-distance (NLD) service.

With broadband penetration at less than 20%, according to the International Telecommunications Union, most of India’s population is still underserved. Recognising this massive growth potential, Jio deployed Nokia’s high-capacity transport network to offer high-bandwidth services such as video streaming, multimedia content distribution and cloud and business services to its rapidly increasing subscriber base.

Nokia’s optical solution provides a scalable transport network to offer high-speed broadband connectivity and communication services for both fixed and wireless users. Jio has deployed Nokia’s 1830 Photonic Service Switch including 100G Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) capabilities enhanced with Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) intelligence to support capacity management and restoration. The new transport network supports the rapid deployment of new services as network demand increases.

“In only 170 days, Jio has signed on 100 million new users. With growth rates of this magnitude we had to ensure we deployed the highest capacity, most resilient transport network to build out the 4G network. Nokia’s next-generation DWDM portfolio provides the ability to scale easily as Jio continues to expand the network to reach the underserved areas of India with digital services in key areas such as communication, education, healthcare, payments and multi-media entertainment,” says Jyotindra Thacker, president, Reliance Jio.

“The government’s vision for digitization across the country, combined with Jio’s goal of making broadband a basic service for all citizens, means broadband penetration will grow quickly in India. The Nokia solution not only provides the speed and capacity necessary for this growth, but it also ensures a more reliable service for the customers. This deployment strengthens Nokia’s presence in India’s optical market where our foothold spans from metro to backbone networks,” says Sam Bucci, head of Nokia’s Optical Business.
