Introducing Mobile Connect Accelerator
Mobile Connect Accelerator (MCX) is a cloud-based managed service, designed to help operators implement Mobile Connect in an easy and fast manner. The service circumvents the need for operators to spend time and resources finding appropriate compliant platforms by themselves.
Today there are 8 companies that can enable easy integration with the operators’ mobile networks so that users of any mobile network offering Mobile Connect can log in and authenticate any application.
The core components of the MCX service include:
- Identity Gateway
- Entry point for the service provider to the Mobile Connect services
- Abstraction layer between the service provider and Mobile Connect services
- Exposure of the OpenID Connect Mobile Connect Profile for the service provider to call to get Mobile Connect services
- Selection of the most appropriate authenticator for the OIDC request from the service provider
- Provision of security mechanisms, like velocity throttling, SLA management etc.
- Service provider registration
- Participation in global discoverability and cross operator federation through integration with the API Exchange
- User registration and self-service portal
