The Evolution of Identity Management – What Does It Mean for Service Providers?
Jun 26, 2018
Efficiently managing the identity information of subscribers has always been a priority for telco operators. However, the evolution toward multi-devices and multi-services experience have forced Service Providers toward a more holistic approach of managing identities across different domains and technologies.
Accordingly, this webinar will examine the evolution of identity management documenting the drivers and timeline for service providers to expand their identity management network capabilities. In addition to network considerations, the webinar will also focus on identity management from a service delivery perspective capturing how progressive service providers are turning to an open management identity structure to enable them to move beyond a pure telco model to become facilitators of cross-device, cross-service personalized experiences in the digital identity age.
Topics to be addressed in this webinar include:
- The drivers and timeline for service providers to expand their identity management capabilities.
- Today’s hot use-case examples: T-Mobile’s Digits, V-by-Vodafone, GSMA’s Mobile Connect, Apple Companion Devices, GDPR identity capture
- Identity management techniques - key functions required to implement a future -looking framework for Open Identity management.
- 5G ready networks - The era of 5G-powered experiences starts today with Intel® technologies.
