Reliance Jio using WIT's Communication Suite for RCS deployment

WIT Software, a provider of rich and unified communications for Mobile Operators, is being used by Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd (“Jio”) to achieve a record as the world´s largest deployment of Rich Communication Services (RCS) using the WIT Communications Suite as a foundation for the “Jio4GVoice” service, the company said.

Currently the Jio4GVoice service, a key part of the highly successful new 4G network that was launched by Reliance Jio in India in September 2016, is the largest and fastest growing RCS community in the world. Within 170 days from the commencement of operations, Jio4GVoice surpassed 100 million subscribers, creating a world record.

Jio4GVoice allows subscribers to become a Jio customer, without the need to buy a new device. After obtaining their Jio SIM, subscribers are able to download the Jio4GVoice App from the Google Play store. Jio subscribers can make and receive voice and video calls seamlessly on the Jio network, without the requirement of an LTE-enabled device, and benefit from the high call quality that the Jio network brings.

Jio4GVoice users also benefit from the enhanced IP messaging features, such as chat, group chat, file transfer, location share and stickers, in addition to the enriched calling features. These capabilities are compatible with the latest RCS specifications.
