Reliance Jio signs with Keysight Technologies to test 4G network

MUMBAI: Reliance Jio Infocomm has signed a deal with US-based test and measurement equipment provider Keysight Technologies to test its Fourth Generation (4G) network.
Analysts peg that the testing deal may have cost Reliance Jio approximately Rs 100 crore.
The Mukesh Ambani-led company is planning to launch its 4G services in December this year in 5,000 cities and towns across India with an approximate investment of Rs 100,000-crore.
Reliance Jio is aiming to provide the best, seamless and high-speed services, after the commercial launch in December.
Keysight will be testing hardware and software for Reliance Jio. It will enable the company to get proper design and test labs for its 4G technology. This supports both Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) and Test-driven Development (TDD) plans. For efficient tests and detecting blind spots, field gear would be required.
With the Keysight equipment, Reliance Jio will be able to test its network for varied parameters like sensitivity, load conditions, power, transmission loss, noise and service quality. The tests will ensure that these deployments meet desired standards for customers. Keysight will make the tests during installation and deployment. Besides, it will also train operators on wireless domains. 
Reliance Jio had earlier joined hands with Keysight to test its base station design and development. After that, the company opted for Long Term Evolution (LTE) Conformance Test System to so that its devices and dongles have the telecom standards of Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), before they were launched.
Besides, Reliance Jio also made investments on 4G LTE device manufacturing test solutions. This will let the company test third-party devices, independently before they are made available to the masses.
