TranSwitch Corporation recently announced its collaboration with Rancore Technologies, the technology and development arm of Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL), which in turn is a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), to support the launch of 4G Broadband Wireless and Wireline Access (BWA) services in India.
As per the deal, Rancore will use TranSwitch’s Atlanta 80 communication processor to launch Reliance’s next generation broadband services. The processor will enable Rancore’s new analog terminal adaptor (ATA) to support multiple services and applications simultaneously, including 4G high-speed data and high quality Voice over LTE (VoLTE) (Long-Term Evolution) without undermining performance. Additionally, the processor will offer 100 Mbps wire speed router throughout for Ethernet frames and will support virtual private network (VPN) services as well.
Rancore’s parent company Reliance Infocomm is the only firm with a pan-India BWA license in all 22 telecom circles of the country. Moreover, Reliance has recently been permitted by India’s Telecom Commission to set up its 4G VoLTE data and voice network.
Headquartered in India, Rancore is one of the major companies specializing in research and development of 4G telecom network equipment and services.
TranSwitch, on the other hand, provides innovative integrated circuit (IC) and intellectual property (IP) solutions, which help the customer and network infrastructure segment in delivering core functionality for video, voice and data communication equipments.
