区块链初创公司Clear和老牌电信技术提供商Tomia合作开发电信区块链平台

2020-11-12 12:46

 

今天区块链初创公司Clear和老牌电信技术提供商Tomia宣布合作。它们将共同提供一个漫游管理、对账和结算平台。两家公司之间有一些客户重叠的情况,这可能促使了这种合作。


今年年初,Clear宣布了一项1,300万美元的a轮投资,得到西班牙电信、德国电信、香港电讯和新加坡电信子公司的支持。它还与西班牙电信(Telefonica)、德国电信(Deutsche Telekom)和沃达丰(Vodafone)进行了多次试验。


与此同时,去年Starhome Mach和Telari合并后成立了TOMIA,其客户包括美国电话电报公司、德国电信、02、Orange、软银、斯普林特、西班牙电信和沃达丰。


回过头来看看他们试图解决的问题,想想当你拨打漫游电话时会发生什么。电信公司记录用户在漫游网络上花费的时间,并需要与漫游合作伙伴协调数据,然后发送或接收付款。区块链可能会简化这一过程,而智能合同可以加速和自动化运营商之间的结算。


但这只是运营商的漫游。除了运营商,电信供应链还包括云、应用程序开发人员、在线商店、银行和其他方面。5G技术将进一步增加这一数字。


TOMIA拥有现有的漫游交易管理和结算应用程序,它正在让这些应用程序与各方正在开发的各种区块链解决方案互操作。迄今为止,缺乏互用性阻碍了和解和解进程。


“我们的伙伴关系清楚地表达了我们的承诺,肩并肩的工作,分享专业知识和见解,以培育新的解决方案,将整个批发漫游结算过程自动化,对吧,从协议管理、结算阶段,“说伊兰Haggiag,联合创始人兼执行主席清楚。


这是CBAN(通信业务自动化网络)探索的第一个用例之一。CBAN的目标之一是确保分布式账本技术(DLT)解决方案是可互操作的。


TOMIA首席执行官Marco Limena表示:“推动合作伙伴合作和自动化纠纷处理的自动化解决方案是电信行业一段时间以来一直渴望的。”他谈到了降低成本和提高效率。“在这个行业正在经历重大变革、电信提供商寻求通过5G等新创新技术推动互联互通的时代,像这样的系统升级变得越来越重要。”

 

Today blockchain startup Clear and established telecoms tech provider Tomia announced a partnership. Together they will provide a joint roaming management, reconciliation and settlement platform. There’s some client overlap between the firms, which perhaps has spurred this collaboration.

At the start of the year, Clear announced a $13 million Series A investment, backed by subsidiaries of Telefónica and Deutsche Telekom as well as HKT and Singtel. It also ran multiple trials with Telefónica, Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone.

Meanwhile, TOMIA was created last year from the merger of Starhome Mach and Telari and boasts clients such as AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, 02, Orange, SoftBank, Sprint, Telefonica and Vodafone.

Stepping back to look at the problem they’re trying to solve, consider what happens when you make a call that involves roaming. Telecoms firms record minutes spent by a customer on a roaming network and need to reconcile the data with roaming partners and then send or receive payments. Blockchain can potentially streamline this process, and smart contracts can expedite and automate the settlement between carriers.

But that’s just carrier roaming. Apart from operators, the telecoms supply chain includes the cloud, app developers, on-line stores, banks and others. And 5G will add to that further.

TOMIA has existing roaming deal management and settlement applications that it’s making interoperable with the various blockchain solutions being developed by numerous parties. To date, the lack of interoperability has hampered the reconciliation and settlement process.

“Our partnership gives expression to our commitment to working side by side and sharing expertise and insights in order to cultivate new solutions that will automate the entire wholesale roaming settlement process, right the way through, from agreement management to settlement stage,” said Eran Haggiag, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Clear.

This was one of the first use cases explored by CBAN, the Communications Business Automation Network. One of CBAN’s aims is to ensure that distributed ledger technology (DLT) solutions are interoperable.

“Automated settlement solutions that drive partner collaboration and dispute automation processes are something the telecommunications industry has wanted for some time,” said Marco Limena, CEO of TOMIA. He spoke about the cost reductions and efficiencies. “System upgrades like these are increasingly important at a time when the industry is undergoing significant change, and telecoms providers seek to drive connectivity through new innovative technologies like 5G.”
