On the Performance of Blockchain-enabled RAN-as-a-service in Beyond 5G Networks - 2021

On The Performance Of Blockchain-Enabled Ran-As-A-Service In Beyond 5g Networks

Research Area:  Blockchain Technology


Blockchain (BC) technology can revolutionize the future of communications by enabling decentralized and open sharing networks. In this paper, we propose the application of BC to facilitate Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and other players such as Verticals or Over-The-Top (OTT) service providers to exchange Radio Access Network (RAN) resources (e.g., infras-tructure, spectrum) in a secure, flexible and autonomous manner. In particular, we propose a BC-enabled reverse auction mecha-nism for RAN sharing and dynamic users service provision in Beyond 5G networks, and we analyze its potential advantages with respect to current service provisioning and RAN sharing schemes. Moreover, we study the delay and overheads incurred by the BC in the whole process, when running over both wireless and wired interfaces.
