Samsung in Spain announces I&G or Infill and Growth Project. The innovative projects collaborate two communication giants in India. The project by Samsung is for Reliance Jio Infocomm, India. The project aims to upgrade existing LTE mobile communication services across India with a stupendous increase in capacity as well as network coverage. As the need for this is increasing at a fast pace in the country, some strong steps need to be taken in this regard. In fact, the project aims to set a new benchmark for LTE services in India. This is to happen via wider coverage, deeper penetration of signals, and high speeds. The uniformity in experience is very important in telecom services. You can’t provide an excellent experience at one place and then it worsening at other locations.

The spectrum in 850, 1800, and 2300 MHz bands targets to enable flawless indoor and outdoor coverage even in highly populated areas. The Infill and Growth project, as its name suggests, will help Jio to expand in rural areas by extending its reach to more than 90 percent of the population. As a matter of fact, this is not the first time Samsung is working with Reliance on a large project. Earlier it provided the LTE core, base station, and various solutions for Reliance’s VoLTE services. They also provide huge deployment services for establishing the large network for Jio. In fact, the two companies earlier deployed the world’s largest greenfield LTE network in India.

Infill and Growth Project

Regarding Infill and Growth Project, Youngky Kim, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics says, “As Jio’s end-to-end LTE solutions partner, it is a great pleasure for Samsung to contribute to Jio’s tremendous success.” He further adds, “The massive deployment of over a million cells across India is especially remarkable. We will strive to create new paradigms for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G by closely cooperating with Jio as a unified workforce.”

Jyotindra Thacker, President of Reliance Jio Infocomm, while talking about Infill and Growth Project says, “I am excited to announce our new project with Samsung. We successfully achieved 100 million subscribers in 170 days, making us the fastest-growing company in the world, and the numbers continue to rapidly grow. It was possible because we introduced a truly effective LTE service, Pan-India. We are committed to bringing game-changing digital experiences to India with superior ecosystems, mobile content, all-IP networks and ongoing process innovations.”
