Telecom industry giant Vodafone Idea (Vi) in a recent announcement has stated that it will collaborate with Cisco to improve its already existing 4G network and, in the future, 5G use cases to offer better quality experience for its customers. The company further added that it would work with Cisco to design and build a cost-efficient network architecture that drives greater speed to market in 4G, 5G, Cloud, and IoT.
Vi has said that it would be adding Cisco’s new ultra-packet core to its network architecture to deploy new software applications and services such as voice-over Wi-Fi. With this, Vi is committed to providing seamless connectivity to its customers and to enhance user experiences that is empowered by an intelligent and automated network offered by Cisco.
The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has allocated 5G trial spectrum in various bands to various telecommunication networks such as Airtel, Jio, and Vi to develop robust 5G use cases. Airtel and Jio have already commenced their 5G trials to test peak speed, latency, and data loads. Vi, however, is yet to begin its 5G trials soon.
