After taking over the consumer space with its telecom service, Reliance Jio is now reportedly looking at offering services to enterprises. As per latest reports, the Mukesh Ambani-led company has already done a soft launch of the services, and a commercial launch is on the cards.
Reliance Jio is in the final test phase of its enterprise offering and with the infrastructure in place, a formal launch is said to be around the corner. A source close to the development is quoted as saying in a BusinessLine report, “RJio is in the final phases of testing its enterprise offering, which is the definite logical step in its growth path. With most of the infrastructure, including optical fibre cables (OFC), towers and data centres, in place, it’s only a matter of time before the services go live.”
As part of the enterprise services, Reliance Jio is looking to offer unified communications, Multiprotocol Label Switching (a protocol for high-speed telecom traffic) networks, Internet Protocol-Virtual Private Networks, cloud services and managed video-conferencing, among others. BGR India has reached out to Reliance Jio for more details on the company’s plans for the enterprise segment in the country.
Reliance Jio boasts an enviable infrastructure with about 1 lakh telecom towers and over 2 lakh route km of fibre, making the enterprise offering the next step forward towards growth. As per the report, the company will also use the recently acquired assets of Reliance Communications to set up its enterprise offering.
The company will use this infrastructure to provide services to corporates, further intensifying the ongoing war with incumbent operators who are fighting for equal space and consumer loyalty amidst the ‘freebies’ offered by Jio.
