A blockchain-based communication network
framework is creating a revolutionary revolution. This change includes the
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) traffic network architecture for distributed computing and
storage, the next-generation blockchain network (NGBN). The core of NGBN is a
new network between the physical layer and the application layer, called the
Block Chain Network Layer (BNL). This network is infinitely scalable for
everyone to use, while also providing an open, powerful and secure network
environment for applications such as the Internet of Things, Big Data, and AI.
Intelligent transportation is a good application scenario on this network.
Various sensors and devices related to intelligent transportation can perform
data collection and edge calculation on the blockchain network platform as
needed, and share information quickly and securely.
We shall introduce the latest practical cases
in how to deploy these solutions with integrated resources, namely network
resources, communication resources, application and chip-level work, software
and systems, and proof-of-concept testing for
end-to-end deployment, etc.

On the evening of 13 December 2019, an informative seminar was jointly organized
Information Technology Division (ITD),
Associate Member Committee (AMC) and Control, Automation and Instrument
Division (CAD) with over 80 attendees to participate this
event, this seminar was presented by Dr Liu, whom is an expert with years of
experience in intelligent traffic system communication and edge computing based
Dr Liu firstly illustrated the key challenges from traditional network
design and infrastructure, which inherited with issues on cost, complexity, as
well as vulnerability. The introduction of innovative Block-chain technology will
address the said issues that capable to be widely applied in various systems
and applications. He further elaborated
some examples in applying Block-chain computing into different kind of
applications like Smart City, including banking and financial system,
cryptocurrency, public transport and communication systems, etc.
Dr Liu then further presented the technical details behind (i.e. block,
hash), the relationship of data storage under Block-chain technology, and the
potential application with the future 5G
communication network, which supports a larger bandwidth for implementation of
Block-Chain in the Artificial Intelligence of traffic system and communication
system. In addition, he also illustrated the traffic system in mainland China
has already been implemented via such kind of technology to analyse traffic
data that benefits to public safety.
All participants were deeply influenced by the insight that was brought
by the experienced speaker and they were all eager to promote the Block-chain
technology in their upcoming projects. On behalf of ITD, AMC and CAD, we would
like to express our sincere gratitude to the speaker for his sharing and
