Accedian and Reliance Jio win global telecom business award for 4G network monitoring in India

Recognized for their collaboration on nationwide deployment of virtualized network monitoring solution

Accedian has been awarded with a Global Telecom Business Award in the ‘Infrastructure Innovation’ category with Reliance Jio, the ground-breaking 4G greenfield operator in India. Winners were announced yesterday May 23rd at an award dinner in London, as part of the annual Global Telecoms Business (GTB) Telecoms Innovation Summit.

The winning project, completed in December 2016, was motivated by India’s growing demand for data and the increasing need for next generation networks to deliver it. Reliance Jio has integrated the SkyLIGHT solution in its Jio Coverage Platform (JCP), an innovative solution developed in-house by Reliance Jio. JCP is a real-time big data analytics platform, which Reliance uses for predictive network operations across its nationwide LTE network of more than 100,000 base stations.

The roll-out of Accedian’s solution—completed in less than 10 weeks, thanks to SkyLIGHT’s agile deployment and high scalability—has also provided Reliance Jio with more network capacity and the ability to launch attractive, revenue-generating applications, such as mobile broadcast video.
