Blockchain is often spoken about as a transformational technology, set to redefine how many businesses work today, but what effect will it have on the networking community? Blockchain expert Cathy Mulligan discusses how to unlock the value of digitalisation and the work currently being conducted with telecoms companies, as well as the DataNet project she is leading at University College London that aims to create a global data infrastructure that does for data what the Internet did for communication. As 5G develops and deploys commercially, and as small cells rapidly increase the number of network nodes, and as virtualisation becomes the norm, does this massively distributed architecture begin to play to blockchain’s strengths?
