QLC Chain Strengthens First Telecom Public Chain Development with 5G Approaching
QLC Chain (previously “Qlink” https://qlcchain.org/ ), the public Blockchain for decentralized Network-as-a-Service continues to strengthen its public chain development with the advent of 5G. It is the world’s first infrastructure level public chain with embedded telecom service capabilities, including billing, security and the trusted Cross-Carrier Payment Systems (CCPS). Other than billing and clearance, QLC will also develop user identity authentication and authorization solutions for network access, as well as IPV6 P2P addressing functions, in the future. They are the essential parts of the QLC Chain’s mission which is to create a secure and trusted environment for telecom service providers at the same time to narrow down the digital divide by leveraging Distributed Ledger Technology, to deliver high-quality telecom service to the 4 billion unconnected people in the remote area.
In terms of technology structure, QLC Chain adopts the innovative multidimensional Block Lattice structure with programmed smart contracts on top of it, which is an industrial high-performance structure. The Directed Acyclic Graph structured architecture has high scalability with a transaction per second(TPS) number as high as 7,000. With QLC chain as the infrastructure, each operator around the world can issue their own token to enhance their competitiveness, increase credibility and at the same time lower the operating cost.
The testnet with explorer and wallet, recognized and praised by community members, peers and rating institutions, has already been online since October 2018. The next milestone for the public chain development team would be delivering the global SMS billing and clearance system that has the capability of facilitating 2 billion transactions per year, by the end of March 2019.
In the A2P SMS industry, the clearance market is not as standardized and transparent as the financial industry. The trustworthiness of agreements made between service providers, telcos, and other related parties have been the core pain points of the global SMS business model. With the first deliverable of the QLC Chain, the public ledger will smoothen the inter-carrier clearance process and provide a trusted layer for people’s everyday use of telecom services. In return, the infrastructure will benefit every consumer and smartphone user.
Today QLC announces the addition of Wen Yuangui to the team as Senior Public Chain Developer. Wen will lead the development of Block Lattice based public chain for telecom services. Wen Yuangui has over 10 years experience with Huawei Technologies, one of the largest telecommunication equipment vendors in the world. Wen was responsible for developing various routing protocols, during which time earned multiple patents. In 2018, Wen devoted himself to the blockchain technologies industry, and successfully developed a blockchain big data collection system from on-chains, mainstream exchanges and news platforms. We believe that Wen will bring ample relevant knowledge and experience to the project.
“It is an exciting opportunity to join QLC Chain. I believe that what QLC Chain is working on would be the next step of telecommunication industry evolution, advancing operators’ technology and business model at the same time enhancing the next generation telecom service users’ experience. I am honored to be one of the team members and feel privileged having the pertinent experience to contribute”, says Wen Yuangui.

5G 落地前夕， QLC Chain持续发力第一通信公链建设
QLC Chain（原名‘Qlink’, 官网 https://qlcchain.org/），首个去中心化的网络即服务公链在5G到来前夕正持续加紧公链研发。作为全球首个具有搭载通讯服务能力的基础设施级公链，QLC Chain成功集成了包括结算业务，安全性能已经可信跨运营商清算系统在内的通讯服务功能。除以上功能以外，QLC Chain还将继续在用户网络接入身份验证和授权，IPV6端到端寻址等功能继续发力。QLC Chain的使命是应用其分布式账本技术为电信服务打造一个安全可信的平台，同时在全球范围内缩小数字鸿沟，让40亿未连接的人群能够享受到优质的电信服务。
自2018年10月，QLC Chain公链测试网网页版钱包和浏览器上线以来，多维区块点阵架构收获了社区、项目支持者，区块链项目评级媒体的广泛好评。QLC Chain在2019年的首个项目里程碑是于3月底交付基于QLC公链的全球跨境短信清结算系统，该系统将支持每年以合作伙伴梦网为代表的20多亿次全球短信发送确认。
现今在企业到个人短信领域，结算层市场尚未达到标准化和透明化。在全球短信业务模式中，服务提供商，电讯运营商和的其他相关利益团体之间协议的可信度，仍是一直以来深埋该领域的痛点。市场不公开，价格不透明加上发送到达率无法追踪等等都是QLC Chain将解决的问题。QLC Chain的首个交付产品，即跨运营商清结算的公共账本，将加快运营商之间结算进程，降低清算成本，透明化整个网络市场。就面向消费者的服务而言，该产品将为消费者的日常生活提供信任层的通讯服务。基于QLC公链的基础设施必将普惠广大短信及网络消费者。
文远癸表示，“加入QLC Chain团队对我来说是个极好的机会。我相信，QLC Chain全力投入开发的领域正是通讯行业将发生巨大变革之处，其效果体现在，既改进了运营商技术和商业模式， 又提高下一代通讯服务用户的体验。我很荣幸能加入团队，也很期待将我的经验用到项目开发中去。”
