California-based telecommunications equipment maker Cisco has patented a system based on blockchain designed for use in 5G wireless networks.
According to the application, the system will manage sessionsdata transfer between the user device, whether it is a smartphone or laptop, and virtual networks. That is, it will manage part of the data exchange between the network and the device connected to it through the blockchain, which will allow more efficient launch of several virtual networks on the same physical infrastructure.
“This architecture supports network sharing,using an isolated set of resources, and can implement individual network functions and services using special programs. At the same time, the launch of such functions and services in one network will not affect services and functions in another, ”the application says.
Cisco has long paid attention to technologydistributed registry. So, in September it was reported that the company, together with the SingularityNET startup, would create a strong artificial intelligence (AGI) based on the blockchain. In February of this year, Cisco launched the Singapore, Blockchain, Internet of Things, and Cybersecurity Research Center.
