India’s all-IP wireless broadband network Reliance Jio has integrated Airspan’s small cells into its LTE network. Thousands of Airspan small cells now carry more than 350 TB of data you use and terminate more than five million VoLTE calls daily.
Airspan is one of the leading providers in LTE Access and innovative Backhaul solutions. Jio is partnering with Airspan to deploy a network of small cells and small cell backhaul products to its LTE network. This provides better coverage and capacity for delivering high-speed broadband data, voice, and digital services across India. The two companies have partnered through an extensive design, development, integration, and deployment cycle in record time to create a cost efficient indoor capacity tool for use today. The design provides a strong path towards the deployment of the next-generation 5G network in India.
“By leveraging a Smart HetNet model supported and orchestrated by a cloud-centric SON framework, Jio and Airspan have completely changed the traditional macro-centric deployment models and enabled Jio to proactively and rapidly address data demand through targeted deployments,” said Mathew Oommen, president, Reliance Jio. “Together, we have been able to innovate on products and solutions that have fundamentally disrupted cost and service models, ensuring that Jio’s self-healing HetNet will be able to seamlessly transition to 5G” he added.

Thanking the 100 million subscribers, the operator has announced Jio Prime membership, where you can continue enjoying the Jio Happy New Year offer another year or till 31st March 2018.
