Leveraging Distributed Ledger Technology for Digital Trust
Blockchain
Overview
With digitalization, data and partnerships are at the heart of transformation. Hence you must trust your data. Blockchain helps you build trust in your data, which is vital for a successful partnership. It has the potential to positively impact the telecom industry, which is facing challenges with partner disputes and fraud daily. Partner settlements and fraud mitigation are two of the top challenges that telecom operators face regularly. As the ecosystem continues to change, it is essential to upgrade some of the wholesale practices like inter-carrier settlement and wholesale fraud mitigation to have operational efficiency. Blockchain promises to tackle these challenges by making the process less error-prone by moving the reactive process to a more proactive one. It provides DSPs quick access to blocked revenues due to disputes and fraud scenarios and simultaneously enables trust in digital partnerships.
