Reconciliation of wholesale traffic over blockchain
Telecom Operators are exploring and investing in new cutting-edge technology to overcome the drawbacks of the traditional way of doing business. The traditional way of reconciliation of wholesale traffic is one such business scenario where settlement partners need to wait for the closure of the billing period to initiate the reconciliation to raise any dispute in case of any discrepancies. This delay in reconciliation leads to blockage of revenue for a longer period extending to 3 months to a year in some cases. Real-time reconciliation will improve business experience where overbilling due to fraudulent traffic will be avoided by proactive identification of fraud, and delay in dispute settlement can be avoided.
Smart Contracts can be hosted over a blockchain that includes the business logic, which will ensure the real-time reconciliation of wholesale traffic using the relevant keys. The use of smart contracts will ensure digitization and transparency of the entire process from reconciliation, dispute management, and generation of credit/ debit notes. Blockchain will ensure the protection of digital key and sensitive data over the immutable distributed ledger, where blockchain will enable secured exchange of information & commercial transactions. The possibility of manipulating the data records or transactions over the blockchain is impossible, bringing trust and transparency for all the stakeholders and participants.
