QLC Chain Joins The O-Ran Alliance, First Blockchain Project To Achieve The Accomplishment
QLC Chain Joins The O-Ran Alliance
This week, QLC Chain became the first blockchain project to join the O-Ran Alliance. The association is a group of operators and vendors working to optimize the network infrastructure for the integration of 5G technologies, as well as the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
The role of QLC Chain in the alliance will be to offer their knowledge in Blockchain technology and RAN Sharing.
The O-Ran Alliance was launched in February last year by several leading telecommunications operators, including AT&T, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, NTT DOCOMO, and Orange. The primary objective of the alliance is to achieve interoperability and autonomy of network operations while reducing the expenses used to run the networks.
As mentioned above, the QLC Chain team has deep knowledge of RAN Sharing. This technology is designed for manufacturers of communication equipment. It is primarily used by telecommunications companies to enable the sharing of network infrastructure amongst different service providers. Allen Li, the chief architect at QLC Chain, holds the patent for this technology.
RAN Sharing is among the most advanced methods of access network sharing. It allows users to share almost all types of network equipment. the smaller RAN access networks are enjoined into a single network that is later divided into separate networks at the point of connection to the core. RAN also allow service providers to maintain their private channels unlike other methods of sharing.
Obviously, QLC Chain will oversee all matters concerning blockchain technology in the O-Ran Alliance. In this regard, Allen Li stead that they were happy to join an alliance that will facilitate the optimization and implantation of future technologies. He particularly mentioned that his company will fast-track the implementation of fragmented resource ownership, smart billing, and smart sharing into the future network infrastructure.
