Mobile Identity Management
with SmartIDM

Manage and monetize subscriber identity

Enable digital identity, state and preferences to be shared and monetized.

Mobile Identity Management is a rapidly emerging trend. Today subscribers interact with the mobile network through multiple services, and information related to these interactions is captured by the network. This rich set of information is a potential goldmine for operators. However, a decisive issue facing them is how to monetize this subscriber information. Information such as subscriber identity / digital identity, state and preferences can be shared with trusted OTT providers such as mobile advertisers, video streaming services or financial institutions who can use this information to authenticate users, personalize their services or serve targeted ads.
