Subscriber data is growing at a phenomenal rate. By 2016, there will be over eight billion mobile devices generating hundreds of terabytes of subscriber data a day. ABI Research estimates that by 2020 there will be 41 billion IoT devices connected to mobile networks, and all of them “potential subscribers”. Managing this data is easier said than done. Almost without exception, carriers have subscriber data saved across different silos and databases – running over different technologies.
To help operators navigate their way through the consolidation, federation and mediation of subscriber data Openwave Mobility has produced a dedicated Subscriber Data Management whitepaper.
What you will learn – key challenge, solutions and use cases
This whitepaper from Openwave Mobility will help mobile operators manage and monetise their subscriber data, gain more efficient network operation and increase revenues.
The paper fully explains the key SDM concepts of Data Consolidation, Data Federation (Virtualisation) and Data Mediation, discussing the following practical working use cases. Use cases include new applications of SDM including identity management and variable QoS.
Operators have the option of having centralised management of all their subscriber data via a User Data Repository (UDR) or via a Subscriber Data Federation (SDF) solution that lets network providers keep their existing silos in place and federate the data. These are both explained. Forward looking operators will learn and understand the latest key concepts behind SDM and will be able to consider how to access their subscriber data in new ways in order to secure new revenue streams.
Who should read the paper?
Mobile operators who:
– Need an understanding of the most up to date techniques being applied in SDM
– Have subscriber data spread across multiple silos and are concerned that they may have to disrupt existing systems
– Want to monetise their subscriber data, but are unsure of how to do this
