  1. 1. © Gyan Research and Analytics Pvt. Ltd., 2015 1 Industry News  Reliance Jio to launch Jio World app Reliance Jio is building a customer interface and app store clubbed into a single online service - Jio World app. The service will bundle the Jio family of apps, account-related updates and upcoming deals. Most of Jio World’s services can be accessed through two main icons - Jio Drawer and mZone. Jio intends to launch downloadable applications for the iOS and Android operating systems, which will be available on their respective app stores.  Telecom operators oppose Microsoft’s entry into white spaces Telecom operators are vehemently opposing Microsoft’s plan to take internet to the country's villages by leveraging tiny gaps left unused between television broadcast frequencies. The companies fear the possibility of Microsoft getting free access to this spectrum, known as white spaces, which might lead to a monopoly. According to the operators, the white spaces are a valuable national asset and they are also interested in it. The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) will write to the Telecom ministry with a demand to auction the spectrum, instead of its allocation to one company. The first phase of Microsoft’s white space technology testing was carried out in Andhra Pradesh. White space airwaves lie in the 470-698 MHz range and can take radio signals to much greater distances than conventional mobile bands.  Gionee starts production in Sri City with Foxconn Chinese handset maker Gionee has started production of its INR 10,000 models at Foxconn's Sri City plant in Andhra Pradesh. The F103 model is currently being assembled at the plant, where assembly lines for Xioami – Gionee’s Chinese rival – are also carried out. However, the company will shift the production from the Foxconn plant to a standalone one in the same Sri City area. The standalone plant will be operational with five assembly lines in mid-November and will have a production capacity of half a million devices a month.  Telecom companies ordered to compensate dropped calls The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has announced a regulation according to which telecom operators will need to compensate users INR 1 per call drop. However, the compensation will not be for more than 3 calls in a single day. The regulation which will come into effect shortly, was issued to ensure strict compliance by telecom companies. According to a TRAI report, the problem of call drop has almost doubled during peak hours in the last one year. Telecommunications News October 10, 2015 – October 16, 2015
