At the AGM 2020 on 15 July, Mukesh Ambani said:

"TODAY, Friends, I have great pride in announcing… That Jio has designed and developed a complete 5G solution from scratch. This will enable us to launch a world-class 5G service in India… using 100 percent home-grown technologies and solutions. This Made-in-India 5G solution will be ready for trials as soon as 5G spectrum is available… and can be ready for field deployment next year. And because of Jio's converged, all-IP network architecture… we can easily upgrade our 4G network to 5G. Once Jio's 5G solution is proven at India-scale, Jio Platforms would be well-positioned to be an exporter of 5G solutions to other telecom operators globally, as a complete managed service. I dedicate Jio's 5G solution to our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's highly motivating vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat."

Jio's global-scale 4G and fibre network is powered by several core software technologies and components. "It is this capability and know-how that positions Jio on the cutting edge of another exciting frontier — 5G," he said.
