Blockchain and smart contracts for future wireless communications and internet of things


   Department of Electronic Engineering

   Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

Blockchain technology is being considered as a solution to a plethora of problems in communications. These proposals aim to leverage the distributed record-keeping and collaborative decision-making features offered by the blockchain and smart contract technologies to address the emerging area of trust-less ecosystems. However, state of the art often overlooks the deployment considerations such as blockchain infrastructure cost and use case-specific performance requirements and scalability. This project aims to investigate a more in-depth perspective into the deployment consideration of blockchain-based solutions for telecommunications networks.
