Qualcomm and Jio Align Efforts on 5G

– Achieve Over 1Gbps Speed in Trials –

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and Jio Platforms
Limited (Jio) along with its wholly owned subsidiary Radisys Corporation today announced their
expanded efforts to develop open and interoperable interface compliant architecture based 5G
solutions with a virtualized RAN. This work is intended to fast track the development and roll out of
indigenous 5G network infrastructure and services in India

Qualcomm Technologies and Jio also announced that they achieved over a 1 Gbps milestone on
the Jio 5GNR solution, leveraging the Qualcomm® 5G RAN Platforms. This achievement not only
supports Jio’s 5G credentials but also signifies the entry of Jio and India into the Gigabit 5G NR
product portfolio.
With 5G technology, users will experience the benefits of higher data rates, low latency
communications and enhanced digital experiences across a wide array of connected devices, from
5G-enabled smartphones to enterprise laptops to AR/VR products to vertical IOT solutions.
Mathew Oommen, President, Reliance Jio Infocomm, said, “We are excited about working with
Qualcomm Technologies in developing new generation cloud native 5G RAN technology that is truly
open and software defined. The development of secure RAN solutions with Qualcomm
Technologies combined with Jio Platforms and scale provides the ideal combination for local
manufacturing and for accelerating the realization of Atmanirbhar Bharat for an inclusive 5G nation.”
Durga Malladi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, 4G/5G, Qualcomm Technologies,
Inc., said, “Qualcomm Technologies aims to deliver cutting-edge technology for virtualized, flexible
and interoperable 5G infrastructure across the globe. We recently achieved over a 1 Gbps milestone
on the Reliance Jio 5G NR product, leveraging our Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms, and we look
forward to expanding our efforts with Reliance Jio to enable flexible and scalable 5G RAN
deployments. Ecosystem collaborations like this play a critical role in allowing operators and industry
verticals to quickly and easily add 5G network coverage and capacity where and when it is needed
most.”
Rajen Vagadia, Vice President, Qualcomm India Private Limited and President, Qualcomm
India, said, “We’re delighted to enter a new phase in our longtime relationship with Reliance Jio,
building on our shared vision for 5G and supporting the digital transformation of India. As the need

wave of demand for 5G services from both end users and enterprises, such as manufacturing, health
care and retail. Jio is regarded as a game changer in delivering cost effective and widespread 4G
network coverage to its subscribers and we look forward to working closely with them on the journey
to rollout advanced 5G infrastructure and services for Indian customers.”

Jio’s innovation has spearheaded the transformation of India into one of the world’s largest
consumers of mobile broadband. With disaggregated and virtualized 5GNR solutions, Jio is
advancing the ecosystem of carrier-grade software-based RAN solutions that are designed to
enable 5G services and experiences for all of India and beyond.
The portfolio of Qualcomm 5G RAN Platforms is designed to provide a foundation for flexible,
virtualized, scalable, and interoperable cellular network infrastructure. The platforms offer scalable
support for a wide range of infrastructure categories ranging from macro base stations with massive
MIMO to small cells, and feature support for all key frequency bands on sub-6 GHz and mmWave
spectrum.
