Taking mobile beyond connectivity

To retain loyalty and relevance amongst consumers in this fast evolving digital world, mobile operators must offer more than connectivity.

People are increasingly wary of sharing personal information with digital service providers, but they have an inherent level of trust in their mobile operator. Now, with Mobile Connect, operators can leverage this trust to put themselves at the heart of secure access and identity for digital services.

By encouraging consumers confidence in using their mobile devices for transactions, and by building new alliances with digital service providers and channel partners, operators will help underpin the digital economy while unlocking new revenue streams for themselves.
