The Role of Mobile Operators

Mobile operators have the capabilities, the experience and the track record to provide fast and secure authentication. For more than two decades, mobile operators have been authenticating consumers’ devices on their networks, securely providing voice calls, messaging, Internet access and other services, while safeguarding consumers’ privacy and personal data. Similarly, mobile operators can underpin the digital economy by providing secure authentication and identification, which consumers and service providers can trust.

For digital service providers, mobile operators are ideal partners, offering:

  • Global reach
  • Experience of secure customer data management
  • Conformance with strong privacy protection regulation
  • Network authentication mechanisms
  • Secure SIMs
  • Consumers’ trust
  • “Know your customer” processes
  • Billing and payments expertise / history
