A group of four international telecommunications companies are currently testing a blockchain-based solution to automate the management of inter-operator roaming discount agreements. According to a report published on Feb. 17 by Mobile Europe, Deutsche Telekom (DE:), T-Mobile US (NASDAQ:), Telefonica (MC:) and Orange say the solution vastly reduces the complexity of the current system, and is “production ready.”
The new solution revamps a process that hasn’t changed in many years and involves drafting, signing and manually implementing agreements for discounted roaming charges.
