To expedite the rollout of 5G services in India, Jio Platforms will collaborate with a Dutch semiconductors manufacturer NXP Semiconductors N.V., for enabling a wide range of 5G use cases in India. The subsidiary of billionaire Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Industries - Jio Platforms will leverage the Nasdaq-listed company's layerscape family of multicore processors' to implement a new radio (NR) O-RAN (radio access network). This will result in a combined solution, powering new RAN networks of 5G use cases for broadband access as well as for Internet of Things (IoT) applications and Industry 4.0.
The end result of high-performance network delivery will also facilitate tele-education, tele-medicine, augmented or virtual reality, drone-based agricultural monitoring, etc. Jio Platforms makes use of innovative technology solutions to serve its customer base and is currently the largest mobile network operator in the country.
The country's leading technology company has leveraged the high performance and flexibility of NXP's layerscape processors in its new 5G NR solutions. The combination results in a strong offering that has been tested at 100 MHz channel bandwidth in a 3.5 GHz spectrum with peak data rates of over 1 Gbps. As a result of this, Jio Platform's 5G NR solutions are well-positioned for the new generation radio access networks.
This will provide increased indoor and outdoor performance, allowing a wide range of 5G use cases with significantly improved user experience in data download rates for mobile users. The service will result in a stronger performance for a wide range of segments, empowering innovative applications in smart homes, smart cities, health, and education.
