Enable billion Indians access superior connectivity.
Indian telecom, Reliance Jio Infocomm (a subsidiary of Reliance Industries) and Google Cloud are embarking on a comprehensive, long-term strategic relationship with a goal of powering 5G in enterprise and consumer segments nationwide.
In addition, Reliance will also take advantage of Google Cloud’s scalable infrastructure thereby enabling its retail business to achieve better operational efficiency, modernize and scale for growth, and deliver better performance and experiences to customers.
Jio and Google Cloud to unlock the transformational impact of 5G
To further Jio’s mission to digitize India with faster and better connectivity, Google Cloud will provide a complete end-to-end cloud offering for fully automated lifecycle management of Jio’s 5G network and services. Google Cloud’s deep expertise and innovation, combined with telco-specific capabilities for security, performance and resilience, will help Jio’s 5G service to meet the demands of customers, thereby strengthening Jio’s position as one of the leading network and largest service providers in the country.
Edge Cloud infrastructure from Google Cloud provides an open, highly scalable and high-performing platform for supporting Jio, which in turn empowers hundreds of millions of Jio subscribers that are expected to use the 5G service. In addition, Jio and Google Cloud will collaborate to bring a portfolio of 5G edge computing solutions to help industries address real business challenges. Jio will explore building new services across gaming, healthcare, education, and video entertainment sectors. These services will use Jio’s 5G network, software and Google Cloud’s innovations in AI/ML, data and analytics and other cloud-native technologies—delivered by Jio and powered by Google Cloud.
Retail businesses to migrate to Google Cloud
As part of the partnership, Reliance will also augment its compute workload for retail business taking advantage of Google’s AI/ML, ecommerce, and demand forecasting offerings. This will help Reliance to rapidly grow its new commerce business to leverage Google Cloud with increased reliability and performance, as well as scale up as needed to respond to customer demand. Jio will also adopt Google Cloud’s scalable, serverless data analytics platform to advance its data-led innovation strategy.
