The big IT service firm Tech Mahindra and Telecom Analytics Solution Provider Subex announced a collaboration to drive the adoption of blockchain-based solutions among telecom operators globally. These solutions will help in eradicating fraud and drive operational efficiencies for communication service providers (CSPs). It will result in a reduction of compliance complexities and speed up the time-to-market.

The collaboration will enable real-time reconciliation reports with summarized data.

These communication service providers will be benefitted from enhanced operational efficiencies by using blockchain-based smart contracts and derive fruitful collaborations, thus winning the trust of various stakeholders.

“Being a service provider of choice for global telecom operators, Tech Mahindra will help reduce overheads and enhance business profitability. …Tech Mahindra aims to offer a cutting-edge solution built on Blockchain and smart contracts that optimizes spends and proactively mitigates disputes.
