Note: This proposal has been accepted and the active Telecom SIG group page can be found at: Hyperledger Telecom SIG


The Hyperledger Telecom Special Interest Group is focused on technical and business-level conversations about appropriate use cases for blockchain technology in the Telecom industry.

Telecom industry today has the most complex operations framework, involving many partners, vendors, customers, distributors, network providers. There are a lot of trust issues and transparency challenges due to the involvement of multiple entities, and no clear mechanism to track end-to-end activities of every entity and Blockchain can solve main issues in Telecom. Blockchain is a decentralized and distributed ledger technology, Trustless operability, Immutable and auditable.


The activities of the Telecom-SIG include:

  • Identifying related proofs of concepts, current pilot, use cases and functional architecture;

  • Working towards building Telecom Blockchain consortium;

  • Sharing stories of successes, failures, opportunities and challenges;

  • Identifying conferences or other opportunities to connect face to face, as well as submit talks or present as a group at an event.

Work Products

The  initial work products will include a set of documents describing Telecom use cases, White Papers, Technical Solutions for blockchain technology. Some of the use cases (but are not limited to) SLA Management, ONAP, OSM,  Multi-Domain Orchestrator, 5G, LF Edge, Network Slicing, IIoT, SDN, NFV etc. This will be an inventory of example use cases which may suggest Telecom applications that are built or could be built using Hyperledger. The Telecom-sig may also host in-person meetings intended to accelerate the Special Interest group's mission.


This SIG will collaborate with other Hyperledger groups, Linux Foundation Open Source Networking, the TSC, Linux Foundation staff, and the project maintainers. The Telecom SIG is interested in collaborating with other Hyperledger and non-Hyperledger groups that aim to identify and share blockchain solutions that increase impact in global development.
