Ciena’s multi-terabit converged packet optical solutions powers the high-speed and  reliable connectivity to Jio’s Customer across India i.e. JIO powered by Ciena.

India’s fastest growing mobile operator Reliance JIO has deployed Ciena®’s (NYSE: CIEN) multi-terabit converged packet-optical technology to power its pan-India 4G network core which helps JIO unleash digital revolution in India.

Operating at speeds up to 200 Gb/s, this deployment gives Jio a high-speed, highly resilient mesh network with unprecedented scale to support its surging subscriber base and subsequent data explosion.


As we know that JIO is India’s newest mobile network operator, with a pan-India 4G network &  has added more than 100 million subscribers in just 170 days. And offers free data till 31st March 2017. JIO launches its new prime membership at Rs. 99 year so s to continue unlimited data @ Rs. 303 pm.

Jio deployed Ciena’s 6500 and 5430 Packet-Optical Platforms, powered by WaveLogic coherent technology to provide ultra-high bandwidth services across its entire network.

This core network connects all major cities of India and is already carrying more than 85 percent of the total data traffic carried through Indian telecom networks, and the deployed network is ready for subscriber additions for months to come. This scale makes it one of the world’s largest multi-terabit networks.

With Ciena-enabled OneConnect restoration, unexpected fiber route failures are restored by autonomously choosing a divergent path that provides higher uptime and unmatched customer experience compared to traditional network architectures.
