DLT-Based Inter-Carrier Commerce

Our Blockchain Credit Scorecard takes the lessons learned from the financial industry and applies it to the Telecom Industry. It automatically detects and updates when a carrier ethernet service is ordered through our self-service portal and updates a digital ledger with consensus mechanism for bookkeeping. The combination of SDN Automation and the Blockchain Credit Scorecard results in a complete package for inter-carrier service delivery, proof of settlement and quality assurance.

Backup Path Calculation in a Telco Grade SDN Network

In 2015, researchers from Italy and Germany formulated the k-Shortest Paths with Limited Overlap problem which is representative of backup paths in a Telco network. They have also introduced an algorithm called OnePass that solves this problem, which we use to calculate multiple backup paths for each customer’s connection. All that is left to do is to have the SDN controller program these paths with a traffic engineering technology such as SR-TE.

Bespoke Supercars and Custom Portals

The concept of placing different external appearances, for what is virtually the same vehicle is a common theme in the automotive industry and something that we can draw a parallel to with our Whitelabel platform.

A white label partnership is an arrangement which allows someone to sell a product created by someone else, under their own brand name. White labelling is a great option to build a Telco business on DCConnect SDN software.
