When the strategies for industrial digitalization are drawn up, it should be borne in mind that the lifecycle of telecommunicatio

Accordingly, companies are well advised to set aside funds for the construction of proprietary pilot platforms and introduce the first products to the market over the next 3-5 years. This will give enough time to renew the entire product and service portfolio before the anticipated technology peak is reached.
Companies should actively seek to acquire expertise in innovations like the blockchain technology and in this field in general.

It would also be advisable to consider venture capital investments in start-up companies working with the blockchain technology.
In the efforts to develop business models, the blockchain and other similar technologies should, above all, be perceived as an excellent opportunity to access completely new markets and earning logics.
