Reliance Industries is launching its next generation fourth generation wireless broadband service under the brand name Jio.
Here is the things you must know about the Reliance Jio and Its Fourth generation service.
1.What is Reliance Jio launching?
Reliance Jio (formerly called Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL)), is an upcoming provider of mobile telephony, broadband services, and digital services in India. Formerly known as Infotel Broadband Services Limited, Reliance Jio will provide 4G services on a pan-India level using LTE technology. The telecom leg of Reliance Industries Limited, it was incorporated in 2007 and is based in Mumbai, India.
2. What is 4G and LTE technology
Fourth generation technology standards allow to take advantage of more bandwidth and better throughput. So what has been done traditionally through wired applications can be now done on wireless devices with equal speeds. So consumers with 4G devices can access high speed data, high definition voice and do real-time video conferencing. The network also offers superior latency for gaming. These all service depends on technology named as LTE (Long Term Evolution).
3. Will a 4G connection work on any smartphone
Here is the secret of Reliance market idea. Technically NO you need to buy 4G enabled handsets if they want to subscribe to the service. Since the high speed data service runs on multiple frequencies, it would need a phone that can seamlessly function on multiple frequencies that are compatible with 4G network. For a full 4G experience, consumers would be better off if they buy future ready handsets that deliver these advantages. The important point to note is that most 4G phones currently available offer only data on 4G & fallback on 2G / 3G for voice delivery. But a VOLTE enabled phone will allow voice calls through the data. Yes and India recently there is no device which support VOLTE and Reliance is going to release their own handset to use this technology
