Jio has bagged an order from Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL) for providing SD-WAN (Software Defined Wide Area Network) solution that will power IOCL’s retail automation and critical business processes.
The business will include payment processing, daily price updates, Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) software and network monitoring with enterprise-grade connectivity, Quality of Service (QOS) and 24×7 support across 28 states and eight Union Territories.
JioBusiness, the Enterprise arm of Reliance Jio Infocomm, will be deploying and managing SD-WAN for IOCL across its 7,200 retail outlets for a period of 5 years.
Prateek Pashine, Head Enterprise, Reliance Jio said, “It is a matter of great pride for Jio to have been selected by IOCL for this prestigious project. We look forward to support IOCL’s digital transformation journey by implementing the largest SD-WAN network in the country with our ‘Made in India’ managed network solution.”
“Our extensive experience in large scale deployments equip us with the technical expertise to support IOCL in achieving higher performance benchmarks across their network and leverage Jio’s connectivity at each of the 7,200 sites. This will in fact be one of the largest deployments of SD-WAN solution in India across any Industry as well as in the Oil & Gas Industry across Asia. Currently the solution deployment is in an advanced stage with 2,000 plus Retail outlets already onboarded on Jio’s SD-WAN setup,” he added.
Jio is “uniquely placed” to offer such integrated Managed Services using its end-to-end digital onboarding platform with zero-touch SD-WAN provisioning, and an integrated view of all 7,200 retail outlets on a single world class NOC interface.
The current deployment is testimony to strong products, robust processes, and learnings from the thousands of WAN links deployed by Jio in offices, factories, and warehouses in various geographies for customers across Government, Banks, Large and Small Businesses.
