The telecom industry is undergoing a trust transition, moving from traditional bottlenecks and inefficiencies to a more transparent and decentralized model. In this blog, we explore the challenges and opportunities for the telecom carrier industry in the era of Web3, which is transforming the way we communicate, transact, and trust.
Trust, the cornerstone of any business transaction, is especially crucial in the global telecom sector. The current state of payments in telecom involves reliance on manual processes, intermediaries, and legacy systems that result in inefficiencies, lack of trust and transparency, delays, and risks.
Delving Deeper into Traditional Trust Mechanisms in Telecom
The telecom industry, with its network spanning across the globe, is undeniably a vast entity. To facilitate seamless business and transactions within this complex web, this sector has historically resorted to intermediaries like banks and financial institutions. These intermediaries have played a pivotal role in shaping the trust dynamics of the telecom landscape.
These intermediaries act as transaction facilitators between telecom carriers operating in different regions and countries. They help navigate the maze of multiple currencies, regulations, standards, and operational nuances. However, this entire process, which has been practiced for decades, no longer meets the current needs of carrier businesses.
The Drawbacks: Intermediaries become an additional layer in any process, invariably leading to operational delays and inefficiency. These can range from waiting periods during transaction settlements to longer times for dispute resolutions. Employing intermediaries comes at a financial cost, too. With multiple entities involved, the chances for errors – be it in invoicing and billing, or settlements – increase. These not only lead to financial discrepancies but can also strain business relationships.
Furthermore, the more the number of steps and participants in a process, the harder it becomes for the primary parties to trace and verify the entire transactional journey. This opacity can sometimes lead to mistrust.
Manual Processes: A Legacy of Inefficiency
Beyond intermediaries, the telecom sector's trust framework has been heavily reliant on manual verification and settlement processes. While these methods may have been the norm in a pre-digital era, they're fraught with challenges in today's dynamic landscape.
The Drawbacks: Manual processes, by their very nature, are slow. In an industry where time is often equated with money, such delays can hamper growth and innovation. No matter how meticulously executed, manual interventions invariably introduce the possibility of errors. In an industry as complex as telecom, these errors take the shape of major issues. As the global telecom landscape expands and becomes more interconnected, manual processes have proven to be the bottlenecks, unable to scale efficiently with growing demands.
The telecom world now stands at a crossroads, looking ahead to modern solutions that can seamlessly blend trust, transparency, efficiency, and scalability. And that's where transformative platforms like Zeebu come into play.
