Widening Blockchain technology toward access control for service provisioning in cellular networks

Abstract

The attention on blockchain technology (BCT) to create new forms of relational reliance has seen an explosion of new applications and initiatives, to assure decentralized security and trust. Its potential as a game-changing technology relates to how data gets distributed and replicated over several organizations and countries. This paper provides an introduction to BCT, as well as a review of its technological aspects. A concrete application of outsource access control and pricing procedures in cellular networks, based on a decentralized access control-as-a-service solution for private cellular networks, is also presented. The application can be used by service and content providers, to provide new business models. The proposed method removes the single point of failure from conventional centralized access control systems, increasing scalability while decreasing operational complexity, regarding access control and pricing procedures. Design and implementation details of the new method in a real-world scenario using a private cellular network and a BCT system that enables smart contracts are also provided.
