Nokia 100G Optical Portfolio Supports India 4G Network
2017-04-25
Nokia has provided its optical core and metro solution for Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited's (Jio) pan-India 4G LTE network to handle the massive
traffic growth fuelled by the operator's initiative to build broadband connectivity for all of India. Spanning 90,000 km in one of the biggest 100G
deployments in the world, the Nokia transport network allows Jio to offer innovative, high-capacity services to underserved regions in India
as well as a nationwide long-distance (NLD) service. 


Over the last six months, Jio has clocked unprecedented subscriber growth as a result of its plan to bring India into the top ten broadband
countries in the world. With broadband penetration at less than 20%, according to the International Telecommunications Union, most
of India's population is still underserved. Recognizing 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 transport network designed 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 Mr Jyotindra Thacker, President at 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
