A TMF Catalyst using Amartus’ Blockchain-based Inter-carrier Settlement Platform Wins an Outstanding Catalyst Award from TM Forum

The winning Catalyst called TMF Catalyst Skynet was designed to demonstrate the Intercarrier Settlement Platform in the context of 5G network slicing and also to promote the usage of the MEF LSO 3.0 API: Sonata and Cantata and a federated orchestration architecture. All of this technology was put to use to build a demonstration telemedicine network connecting hospitals in the United Kingdom and Japan. In addition to Amartus, other Skynet participants included BearingPoint, Ericsson, EXFO, Infosys, and Rift. Project champions included BT, Chunghwa Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, Du, NTT Group, Orange, Verizon, Vodafone, Telecom Italia, and Telus.

Each Catalyst was evaluated and judged by the TM Forum’s Collaboration Subcommittee alongside a panel of independent industry analysts. The Collaboration Subcommittee oversees the creation and adoption of best practices. Of the six awards, Catalyst Skynet won the Outstanding Catalyst Depicting Business Assurance Awareness.

“This Catalyst had everything going for it: great partners, supportive champions and an application that was a great showcase for what Amartus can do with its expertise in intercarrier settlements and blockchain technology.”

Simon Altman

VP of Business Development.

“We thank the TM Forum Collaboration Subcommittee for this award and look forward to continuing our work at the next event.”
