As per industry sources, Reliance Jio has developed a 5G network slicing platform (NSP) over its 5G network which will enable network slicing-as-a-service (NSaaS). This platform pre-integrates with Jio’s home-grown cloud native OSS and BSS, to deliver an end to end service experience starting right from a customer-facing marketplace of 5G apps.

The operator believes that with private and enterprise 5G use cases maturing, the NSaaS capability coupled with cloud native automation will make 5G service delivery possible at scale.

Recently, Jio had announced that it has enabled edge computing on its cloud-native 5G network at more than 50 facilities across India. The telco claims to have developed its own homegrown 5G stack which it plans to offer abroad once it has tested its competence on a pan-India scale.
