Basic telco identity model

Screen_shot_2012-11-23_at_12

Users with identities (telco issued or not) use devices (telco bound or not) on networks (telco owned or not) to access applications (telco hosted or not).

Nice architecture :)
You also need to take into account that there are different processes that are all connected to a customer: CRM, Provisioning (not user provisioning, but providing hardware, sims and phone numbers) and billing. In many cases these are silos. And then mobile can also be post-paid (subscription based) and pre-paid, both with complete different billing models.

I used this model to analyse user management at a telco: http://id-use.blogspot.nl/2012/09/identity-management-and-crm.html
This is not usable like your model, because it doesn't show the identity flow like your model.
