Reliance Jio chairman Mukesh Ambani stated the operator is on track to spread 5G coverage nationwide by the end of the year, supported by over one million 5G sites online, reported the Economic Times.
Ambani declared at the Reliance Industries annual general meeting that Jio’s 5G network covers 96% of towns.
The chairman also discussed the operator’s Jio True5G Developer platform and a new facility called the Jio True5G Lab, which was set up to expand the operator’s 5G ecosystem.
The developer platform combines Jio’s 5G network, edge computing, applications and services to provide a single platform to enable enterprises to tap into 5G services such as network slicing on-demand, application deployment and other partner apps.
Ambani said the platform will enable network slicing regularly, enhance resource management, reduce costs and enable Jio partners and b2B clients to develop and test industry-specific solutions.
