Orange has selected IBM software and services to give its 50 million mobile phone customers the ability to sign on to accounts only once and securely access different mobile services or Websites, such as instant messaging, location-based services, games, online banking and e-mail.

Orange will use IBM software (WebSphere middleware and Tivoli Access Manager) that complies with the Liberty 1.1 specification for single sign-on, that allows identity data to communicate over disparate networks.

IBM has announced that Orange is connecting its system using Web services, which allows the company’s various subsidiaries and third-party content providers, such as an online bank or email provider, to access the Orange network and make additional services rapidly available to Orange customers.

Additionally, Orange sister companies within the France Telecom group and third-party content providers will not have to incur the expense of creating, enrolling or managing individual identity accounts for each Orange customer using their services.The software involved allows companies that have a relationship with Orange to access the Orange network regardless of underlying technologies being used.
