Reliance Jio is deploying pre-5G Massive MIMO across IPL stadiums at Mumbai’s Wankhede Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla ground. The massive MIMO deployment will allow operator to offer high speed Internet access to users during the matches.
According to Jio’s press note, both stadiums will get connected with an array of massive MIMO, 4G eNodeBs, and several Wi-Fi cells to create a wide-ranging network.
As per Jio’s claim, massive MIMO offers five times the capacity of a 30MHz wide band spectrum in high density areas, a la cricket stadiums during IPL.
“Jio being the fastest growing network in the world has to offer a seamless experience to our customers and this advanced pre-5G will enable high capacity network with enhanced digital experience at the IPL match venues,” Reliance Jio said in a statement.
Jio had recently launched its latest Rs. 251 prepaid pack targeting IPL fans. The pack offers a total of 102 GB 4G data (2GB per day) with a validity of 51 days, which is the duration of this year’s Indian Premier League.
