Many of the companies in this block of profiles seem pretty keen to talk about AI. Reliance Jio has created an AI platform, “Jio Brain,” which it says is to integrate machine learning capabilities in the telco network, enterprise network or any industry-specific IT network, without having to undergo network/IT transformation.

The president of SoftBank Corp has described 2023 as “a critical year that heralded the dawn of this new era” (of a society that will coexist with AI). SoftBank is a founding member of the AI-RAN Alliance launched at Mobile World Congress 2024.

As for Etisalat, in a white paper published in January 2024, the company said that 5G-Advanced will improve network performance using AI and machine learning.

All these companies also seem committed to going green. SoftBank, for example, intends to become carbon neutral by 2030 and to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. NTT Docomo wants to achieve net zero carbon emissions across the company’s supply chain by 2040. 

In February 2024, the Carbon Disclosure Project recognised Reliance Jio as one of 22 top-performing telcos that show “environmental leadership”.

Updated profiles of all these companies are now available to Spectrum Research Service subscribers:

Profiles of Orange, Telefonica, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telenor were published last week.
