Mobile network operators are increasingly challenged to provide seamless end user identity across systems, apps, and operators. Consumers increasingly access information and services on mobile devices but having multiple accounts based on passwords that can be hacked is both confusing and a security concern.
The Mobile Connect standard from the GSMA is designed to address the identity challenge. Apigee Identity APIx is an API-based solution that enables mobile network operators who are using the GSMA Mobile Connect solution to deliver and manage secure, universal authentication across a range of services and devices.
The Identity APIx solution is offered as part of the GSMA Mobile Connect Accelerator (MCX) program. It enables single sign-on across operators for creating engaging end user apps.
Identity APIx is a cloud service built on Apigee Edge and adds to Apigee’s services for the telecommunications industry, which include API Exchange – a technology platform that offers identity federation for cross-operator reach.
