Distributed Ledger Technologies For Network Slicing: A Survey

Farhana Javed, Kiril Antevski, Josep Mangues, Lorenza Giupponi, Carlos J. Bernardos
2022 IEEE Access  
Deploying slices requires end-to-end (E2E) control of services and the underlying resources in a network substrate featuring an increasing number of stakeholders.  ...  In this context, Blockchain comes to the rescue by bringing its decentralized yet immutable and auditable lemdger, which has a high potential in the telco arena.  ...  For instance, [139] present a distributed SLA management with Smart Contracts and Blockchain creating distributed cloud offering dynamic services and promoting reduced costs for cloud consumers.  ...
