As Reliance Jio gets prepared to launch standalone 'True 5G' services by Diwali this year in key metro cities, the company has partnered with some of the world's leading technology giants as strong partners in the 'made in India' 5G collaboration.

While Jio partnered with Mark Zuckerberg-led Meta (formerly Facebook) for immersive technology, it has collaborated with Google to develop ultra-affordable 5G smartphones.

On Cloud, Jio has partnered with Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure to ensure a vibrant ecosystem of cloud-enabled business applications and solutions for its millions of users.

The company has picked chip-maker Intel for cloud-scale data centres and 5G edge locations, while it has robust relationships with leading global network technology providers like Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung and Cisco.

Jio also forged a collaboration with Qualcomm to develop 5G solutions for India, which can be taken to the rest of the world.

Using JioAirFiber, people can do away with all expenses related to buying computer hardware and periodically upgrading it, and opt to use a virtual PC hosted in the cloud -- called Jio Cloud PC.

With no upfront investment or tension of periodical upgrading, a user needs to pay only to the extent used, resulting in a super-affordable way to bring the power of a PC, even multiple PCs, to every Indian home and business.

Meta and Jio Platforms also announced the launch of the first-ever end-to-end shopping experience on WhatsApp, where consumers can shop from JioMart right within their WhatsApp chat.

Jio will launch 5G services in four metro cities -- Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai -- by Diwali.

These will be expanded to other cities and towns in phases rapidly to cover the entire country by December 2023.
