Jio 6G Coming Soon? Reliance Joins Forces With This University For 6G Research, Rollout
India is still preparing for the rollout of 5G in the country. But this is not in any way stopping telecommunication industry players look beyond the horizon. Reliance Jio is known for its aggressiveness. And being true to its reputation the company has started gearing up for 6G technology as well.
Jio collaborates with the University of Oulu to develop 6G tech
In recent developments, Jio’s Estonia arm and the University of Oulu have signed an agreement to collaborate for the development of 6G technology as well as to foster entrepreneurship. The collaboration is expected to extend Jio’s 5G capabilities and will help explore use cases in the 6G era.
University of Oulu’s Director of the 6G Flagship Professor Matti Latva-aho said, “as the leader of the world’s first major 6G research program, the University of Oulu focuses on wireless communications leading to 6G technologies. We are looking forward to collaborating with Jio Estonia and the entire Reliance Group on targeted research initiatives that will enable future wireless end-to-end solutions for a wide range of end-user requirements”.
The 6G builds on top of 5G and extends digitization through unique capabilities. 5G and 6G can co-exist and cover a broad range of consumer and enterprise use cases.
This collaboration will be beneficial for both parties
It should be noted that the collaborative effort will aid in competing with 6G-enabled products in the defense, automotive, white goods, industrial machinery, consumer goods, efficient manufacturing, novel personal smart device environments, and experiences such as urban computing and autonomous traffic settings.
This teaming up will foster entrepreneurship by bringing together a world-class pool of expertise from both industry and academia in aerial and space communication, holographic beamforming, 3D-connected intelligence in cyber security, microelectronics, and photonics.
Jio Estonia CEO Taavi Kotka said Jio has more than 400 million subscribers in India and their experience shows that building capacity to transmit large amounts of data is becoming critical.
With such kinds of collaborations, the company wants to make sure that it keeps on growing and developing as a world region of the future. This early investment in 6G technology will give Reliance Jio a good headstart.
