Reliance Communication, Qualcomm collaborate On CDMA2000 expansion in India

BANGALORE: Reliance Communications Ltd (RCL) and Qualcomm today announced their plan to grow CDMA2000® technology in India.

The two companies will collaborate to leverage the capabilities of the CDMA2000 technology by addressing the increasing needs of rural, urban and enterprise consumers through the introduction of more affordable and feature-rich handsets, wireless Internet data cards and a host of data applications.


RCL also announced their CDMA2000 network expansion covering more than 20,000 towns in India. RCL‘s network expansion is believed to be the world‘s largest and fastest infrastructure deployment project. Once completed, this project is expected to help India meet its ambitious teledensity targets and provide telecom services across the many Indian villages which do not have any connectivity today.

To address the needs of the enterprise segment, RCL has launched Reliance Netconnect, which offers uninterrupted, anytime, anywhere wireless Internet connectivity in more than 8000 towns, 300,000 villages and along major highways and railway routes in India.


As per an official release from Qualcomm, RCL chairman Anil Ambani said, "We are committed to the continued explosive growth of telecommunication services in India”, while adding, "We remain focused on achieving ever higher levels of profitable growth, by delivering long term value to our consumers."

Qualcomm CEO Paul E. Jacobs said, "Reliance is a key driver of the fastest growing telecom market in the world, and we are pleased to enhance our long standing collaboration with them. We are committed to support Reliance in its mission to grow the CDMA2000 market in India. Our latest goal is to bring consumers an exciting new range of data offerings in mobile broadband, including multimedia and entertainment."
