  • Reliance Jio, India’s largest telecom provider, has bagged an order from the state-owned Indian Oil Corporation to provide enterprise-grade managed network solutions.

Reliance Jio, India’s largest telecom provider, has bagged an order from the state-owned Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) to provide enterprise-grade managed network solutions at 7,200 IOC sites across the country.

As part of this agreement, Jio will provide software defined wide area network (SD-WAN) services to enable zero-touch provisioning, 24x7 real-time monitoring and other networked services like remote desktop protocol software and price updates. Jio’s services will also include payment processing and Quality of Service (QoS) solutions.

JioBusiness, the enterprise arm of Reliance Jio, will provide networked services for a period of five years, across 28 states and 8 union territories. It will also be amongst the largest deployments of networked services in India.

Making the announcement, Prateek Pashine, Head Enterprise, Reliance Jio said that the company has already onboard over 2,000 retail outlets of IOC on its networked services setup.

“We look forward to supporting IOC's digital transformation journey by implementing the largest SD-WAN network in the country with our 'Made in India' managed network solution,” Pashine added.

Jio currently deploys its SD-WAN solutions in offices, factories, and warehouses of large and small businesses, government, and banks.

“Our extensive experience in large-scale deployments equips us with the technical expertise to support IOC in achieving higher performance benchmarks across their network and leverage Jio's connectivity at each of the 7,200 sites,” said Pashine.

Reliance Jio is India’s leading telecom operator with 421 million subscribers. It also bagged 24,740MHz 5G spectrum worth ₹88,078 crore in the auctions concluded earlier this year, with an eye on taking a lead over its rival Bharti Airtel in catering to the enterprise segment.

Earlier, in an exclusive interview with Business Insider India, Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) chairman Dr SP Kochhar said that the enterprise segment will drive 5G revenues, contributing about 70% while consumer services will contribute about 30-40%.
