NXP Semiconductors and Jio partner for 5G Use Cases in India


In a bid to accelerate its 5G efforts in India, Jio Platforms has announced a partnership with NXP Semiconductors.

Under the new agreement, Jio and NXP plan to develop, test, implement a 5G NR O-RAN small cell solution incorporating NXP’s Layerscape family of multicore processors.

Executive Opinion

Mr Aayush Bhatnagar, senior vice president of Jio Platforms, said, "The NXP processor platform is an important component of Jio’s 5G journey. 5G New Radio solutions require flexibility in terms of the platform features, efficiency and rich tooling, which NXP brings to the table. Along with NXP, Jio Platforms has developed state-of-the art radio products, which are compliant to the 3GPP as well as to the O-RAN standards. We have a history of close collaboration with NXP, and we look forward to strengthening it further".

Tareq Bustami, senior vice president and general manager, Network Edge at NXP Semiconductors, said, "The collaboration with Jio to develop, test and deploy 5G solutions underscores the power of our Layerscape products and the growing ability of NXP’s antenna-to-processor portfolio to accelerate new 5G deployments. Jio and NXP are both focused on technical and innovation leadership, and this combined systems integration demonstrates our shared vision to deliver efficient 5G NR solutions to the India market."

The combined solution, NXP revealed, will power Jio’s new radio access network (RAN) capable of delivering a high-performance 5G network. The 5G network will enable a wide range of uses cases for broadband access as well as industry 4.0 and IoT applications such as AR/VR, tele-education, smart homes, and telemedicine, notes the announcement.

NXP’s Layerscape multi-core processors use a combination of ARM 64-bit cores, security and networking offload engines with high-speed SerDes interfaces. In tests, these chips enabled the Jio’s 5G NR solutions to deliver the peak data rates of around 1Gbps at 100MHz channel bandwidth in a 3.5GHz spectrum.
