The telecom industry is at an inflection point. Telco market participants—everyone from fixed-line and wireless telecoms, communication software vendors, industry hardware providers to solution providers—need to manage large amounts of data, logic, and processes. They compete with cloud, yet many of their processes are manual and inefficient. On top of that, clearing & settlement is a lengthy, complicated, and risky process. The default and late payment risk of lower-tier carriers is high. Tier 1 carriers manage settlement between each other in batch processes with high exposures to one another.
Blockchain technology speaks the future of digital transformation in the telecoms industry. Blockchain technology brings telecoms into the digital age by streamlining 5G network deployment, IoT device management, edge computing capabilities, cross-carrier payment networks and inter-carrier clearing efficiencies.
