Our Session Details:
Blockchain is often seen as a technology for financial sector, but India is leading the Blockchain revolution in Telecommunication Sector. Pesky commercial calls and SMSs are a big problem for Indian Telecom subscribers. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has notified new regulations on Unsolicited Commercial Communications (UCC) to Curb Pesky Calls, There is also a draft regulation issued on running Mobile Number Portability process on Blockchain. This is first of a kind step in India where a regulator is embracing a technology like blockchain, for regulatory compliance purposes. Blockchain is known as technology for building trust through systems and hence eliminating intermediary, in the proposed session we will explore the blockchain features that promote trust and privacy in the context of Telecommunication Industry.

The other notion about Blockchain technology is it do not scale well, but in Indian Telecom context scale is a fundamental requirement, we will also explore scalability aspects of a enterprise Blockchain implementation in the proposed session.

Our Objective:
Starting with basics of blockchain for larger audience this session will dive into Telco Use Cases where Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) can be applied in broader context. Especially this session will focus on how Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is supporting implementation of a particular use case called ‘Do not Disturb (DnD)’ service and its regulation details that each Telco providers can implement. Once implemented this will be revolutionary use case in Indian Telco Industry (First of a Kind) and would be exemplary in terms of scale or transaction volume. Audience will get a great amount of ideas from technology basics to large scale Blockchain implementation

We look forward to the enthusiastic audience at TechBhubaneswar day, where we can show case our knowledge in a very interacting way. We are excited to meet you ?
