Sonera takes digital ID solution from UXP Systems

Sonera

Telia’s Finnish opco Sonera has selected UXP Systems’ User Lifecycle Management (ULM) platform to deliver digital identity and user management processes across its channels.

The Canada-based vendor’s platform sits above operators’ existing BSS/OSS systems and allows users to connect to their products and services with a digital identity, like a telco-version of an Apple ID.

The ULM system will enable Sonera to create a unique digital ID for each user, for access to all of its digital services.

Sari Leppänen, Head of Business Transformation at Sonera, said: “We know very well the importance of user-centricity and identity management when transforming to become more digital.

“UXP Systems’ ULM platform will become an important enabler for us to transform our user-onboarding, user-managed delegation, and group management within all customer-facing applications, and will play a critical role in driving multi-channel engagement across all products and services in Finland.”

UXP is already working with Cable & Wireless, Liberty Global and Vodafone Group.

The vendor reckons its solution gives operators a new way to engage with customers, and compete with OTTs, which does not require them to replace legacy BSS/OSS infrastructure.

Gemini Waghmare, Founder and CEO at UXP Systems, said: “Sonera is leading the industry in innovation and are among the first wave of operators who have recognised that the key to digital transformation is placing Digital Identity at centre of their transformation plans, enabling the management of the entire lifecycle of every user across all core and cloud services.”
