5G networks are rapidly being deployed globally but face challenges that can be addressed by Blockchain. This is because Blockchain can play an important role in implementing 5G technologies such as edge computing, network function virtualization and network slicing. The session will begin by discussing some key 5G business use cases driving ecosystem platforms including spectrum management, network slicing, infrastructure roll out and security monitoring which will benefit from Hyperledger. We will then discuss the network slicing use case and how a Hyperledger driven Business and Operations Support platform can be integrated with network deployment/management tools (MANO, event monitors, CI/CD, closed loop automation) to orchestrate and operate 5G network with xNF's based core network building blocks (vRAN, 5G core, Transport etc) and applications running at the edge.
