Industry Workshop Focuses on Delivering Commercial Identity Services

August 31, 2018

Mobile-based digital identity is becoming essential in modern society. In the Asia-Pacific region, the increase in mobile connections and device ownership enables citizens to access services in ever-greater numbers. Now, governments and businesses are tasked with integrating a secure, and convenient and identity service with their current solutions.

 

To support this objective, the mobile industry will convene in Bangkok on 7 September 2018 for the Mobile Connect Workshop. Part of the GSMA Mobile 360 Series – Digital Societies, which runs from September 5th-7th, the workshop will provide an understanding of how to monetise identity services,  how to deliver universal digital identity across Asia-Pacific and the commercial advantage of doing so.

 

The region’s operators have advanced their capabilities in digital identity and already provide market-leading services in a number of countries across Asia. With an increasing number of businesses making greater use of mobile networks and operator products, the workshop will explain how the industry’s identity service, Mobile Connect, is ready to serve a multitude of use-cases in the public and private sectors.

 

The Mobile Connect Workshop will feature experts from the broader ecosystem providing an analysis of various trends and deployments and in Korea, Thailand, India, Singapore and more. Digital identity, and Mobile Connect, is playing a crucial role in such countries in advancing public and e-Government services, and will be central to the event.

 

So too will the issue of cross-border authentication, which is increasingly heralded as a means developing a new era of secure, cross-border trade. Given the disparate nature of social and legal institutions across the region, there is a great need to collaborate as early as possible – those who do, will strengthen their position in this burgeoning market.  The workshop will demonstrate a number of use-cases where collaboration has enabled a range of commercial opportunities without technical or regulatory burden. During the event, attendees will be to experience a live demonstration of how Deutsche Telekom and Korea Telecom have collaborated to deliver an identity service which can be used to access services in both Germany and Korea.

 

With identity so crucial to the viability and growth of digital services, we encourage operators, service providers and identity experts to attend and help form a common approach to this untapped commercial opportunity.
