Cisco, the IT company, has received a patent detailing how it can secure 5G telecom networks by leveraging blockchain technology. Tech Giant Cisco won a patent to secure 5G networks using blockchain.
As per a November filing from the USPTO, the firm applied for a patent on how to leverage Blockchain for wireless telecom networks.
The Blockchain-based platform would supervise data between virtual networks and phone or laptop users. The technology would oversee the exchange of data between virtualized networks and the Blockchain interface-based devices.
The filing stated, “This service-oriented architecture supports network slices, which employ an isolated set of programmable resources that can implement individual network functions and/or application services through software programs within a respective network slice, without interfering with other functions and services on coexisting network slices.”
