Integrating Fragmented Identities

I participated recently in an interesting discussion that underscored a major challenge for large service providers seeking to capitalize on the large repositories of Identity information they maintain. Often, different lines of business have separate identity repositories: wireline, wireless, IPTV, ISP. Different repositories are used for various authentiation methods: AAA, HLR, HSS. Different systems exist for billing, network management, sales, marketing, operations and finance. Couple this with the need for “telco grade infrastructure (high performance, high reliability, super scale).

These realities present huge challenges and opportunities. We like to call the solution “Subscriber Profile Consolidation for the Participation Age.” Properly implemented, this concept can provide powerful business advantage to service providers who maintain these identities and corresponding business relationships.

This fits right into what we at Sun call the “Go Big” mentality. Great stuff!
