Again the same scene, Reliance Jio COAI Interconnection ports war again started. People thought everything becomes smooth after the Reliance Jio commercial launch. But it seems that Reliance Jio customers have no good days in these days, except free data & free SIM.
Ten days back I wrote on interconnect ports issue in between Reliance Jio and the Cellular Operators Association of India which reached PMO (Prime Minister Office).
Reliance Jio COAI Interconnection ports explained
To make calls to other networks every telecom company must have sufficient interconnection ports. If it doesn’t have sufficient ports, the calls made by its subscribers to other networks will fail, and the negative image will accumulate on the network.
Every mobile operator must provide 12,500 E1 interconnection ports for 2.2 crore subscribers. But before Reliance Jio commercial launch, Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) membered with Airtel & other operators, offered only Radio 1400 ports instead of 12,500 E1 ports to Relinace Jio. Reliance Jio subscribers started blaming Reliance as the company is offering poor services. But it is not Reliance Jio fault, Airtel, Vodafone, Airtel fault.
At that point of time, they argued that Reliance Jio is just in preview offer stage, and COAI is providing more than required E1 interconnection ports. Two days back Reliance Jio commercially launched.
Reliance Jio Call Failure
Reliance Jio customers across the country are facing an enormous amount of call drops. As per the Reliance Mukesh Ambani 5 Crore call drops occurred because of the interconnection ports issue.
Today COAI wrote a letter to Prime Minister Office stating that they can’t provide all the required interconnections points for the Reliance Jio because they have not sufficient infrastructure to meet the Reliance Jio high volume of free calls.
So next what happens is time decides.
