Idea Cellular provides more interconnection ports to Reliance Jio

Earlier, Jio said that interconnection points provided by other operators were not sufficient

Cellular on Friday said it is now providing 1,865 to for access, from the 565 earlier — a 230% increase in capacity.

"has now provisioned 1,865 for access, from 565 earlier — a 230% increase in capacity. Simultaneously, the NLD (national long distance service) capacity is also being expanded by nearly 50%," the company said in a statement.

Cellular recently invited for a discussion to mutually resolve the traffic asymmetry.

"As quality of service for its customers is top priority, has agreed to further enhance capacity in both access and long distance interconnection, by providing over 230% additional capacity, allowing for two-way calling between the networks," the statement said.

"With this huge capacity expansion, over 2,100 will now be available for traffic between and Jio, allowing sufficient buffer for the future," it added.

Earlier, said that points provided by other operators were not sufficient.

"Based on industry practice, 12,500 E1 (interconnect points, with technical parameters) are required for 22 million subscribers, details of which have been provided to the members of Cellular Operators' Association of India," said a Reliance Industries statement on August 18.

"As against this, the top three operators have released only 1,400 so far," the company said.

A rough calculation suggests that Jio, as per the above-mentioned figures, would need a little over 8,500 given a subscriber base of 15 million.
