DoT assigns signalling point codes for long distance services

The Department of Telecommunications has assigned signalling point codes to Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, a move that would enable the company to provide international and national long distance services. The company has been allotted the codes for both ILD and NLD services in Mumbai, Delhi, Karnataka and Kolkata.

The codes have to be used within six months, or they would be withdrawn, according to the regulations under which they were issued. Signalling Point Codes are required to establish interconnection between two networks.

Mumbai-based RJIL, controlled by industrialist Mukesh Ambani, holds 1800 MHz spectrum across 14 circles and 2300 MHz in 22 circles.

The company is gearing up to launch 4G wireless services in 2015.

Earlier, Reliance Jio had also sought regulatory approvals to merge its two subsidiaries, Infotel Telecom Ltd and Rancore Technologies, with itself.

Reliance Jio holds a unified licence, Infotel Telecom has licences for long-distance telephony licences and Rancore is an R&D unit.
