Russias Yota Devices Looks To Collaborate With Reliance

Business The tele. market in India is booming. In fact, many people would say that booming is an understatement. For a country with over a billion people out of which less than a quarter have access to super-fast networks; theres a huge opportunity awaiting tele. .panies. The newest entrant into Indias incredibly lucrative marketplace is Mukesh Ambanis Reliance Jio Info.m Limited (RJIL). The Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) owned .pany has been continuously working to put out their long-awaited 4G network into the market. RJIL is the only Indian .pany with a pan-India 4G license and as such, has been working tirelessly to ensure flawless performance by developing both, technical and infrastructural facilities. Yota Devices, a Russian vendor of products which support 4G is in talks with the Mukesh Ambani-owned .pany to provide Wi-Fi dongles and routers. Pavel Zakharkin, business development director at Yota Devices told us that the .pany’s talks with Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Jio were at an advanced stage. Reliance Jio is using Yota’s routers and dongles for 4G trials on the 2300 MHz bandwidth (TD-LTE) in the country. Zakharkin was quoted as saying, "We hope to close a deal with Reliance Jio for our TD-LTE devices." He also added that Yota was working with RJIL for the testing of devices on the tele. operator’s network. At the recent annual general meeting of RIL, Mukesh Ambani said that Reliance Jio will conduct extensive tests till early 2015 in order to ensure flawless performance when the network launches later in the year. RIL has infused over Rupees 70,000 crore in RJIL and riding on the back of this investment, the .pany has been able to seal many deals which will contribute in providing end-users with a great experience. However, RJIL remained tight-lipped about its collaboration with Yota devices when enquired. "We don’t announce vendor tie-ups. In fact, no vendor can disclose anything to media as there is nondisclosure as part of our contract in all purchases or service contracts.Many vendors .e and show their product. That doesn’t mean we are buying from them," a Reliance Jio spokesperson said in a statement. Yota Devices’ TD-LTE enabled Wi-Fi dongle ‘Amber’, which can connect 11 different devices simultaneously in a home environment, and portable router ‘Ruby’ are the two products that the .pany has positioned for the Indian market. The devices are based on Qual.m and Altair chipsets, respectively. Zakharkin said the .pany would ensure the "best pricing" in India, adding that Indian market was similar to Russia’s in terms of price sensitiveness. Besides routers and dongles, Yota Devices also plans to launch an upgraded version of its dual screen equipped YotaPhone that it sells in developed countries. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
