Reliance Industry is a private sector conglomerate company choosing to upgrade their communications network. The company specializes in sales of petroleum products and other medically related supplies and has profited 3.6 billion dollars in the last fiscal year, ranking 264th in the Fortune 500. The company is searching for a reliable network and was speculated to choose Nokia’s TD-LTE system, however, further testing has proven that TD-LTE may not be ready to launch in a country where cheap supplies and products are a necessity. Reliance Industries criticized TD-LTE, eluding to its immaturity as a network. Meanwhile the company began successfully testing Sprint’s WIMAX.
WIMAX the commercially-tested and proven 4G network, seems to have it’s grips on the Indian Market and as of now, is the odds on favorites to be the network provider for Reliance Industries. The deal between the two companies will cause groundbreaking repercussions for the WIMAX network. Becoming a provider for Reliance may spark world-wide press and acknowledgement for the 4-G network. Using Reliance as a foothold or will undeniably launch WIMAX’s network above all in India.
