  • Patent number: 10645085
    Abstract: Various implementations disclosed herein enable a method of managing device access on one or more operator networks. The method includes determining correspondence between a first adaptor module of a plurality of adaptor modules and a first request to manage devices deployed on a first operator network associated with the first adaptor module. The first request conforms to a first interface. The method includes converting, by the first adaptor module, the first request into a second request that conforms to a second interface provided by an operator entity associated with the first operator network. The second interface is configured to mask network elements of the first operator network in order to prevent direct communication with the network elements. The method includes transmitting the second request to the operator entity via the second interface. The transmitting satisfies a security criterion to shield the network elements from the device management system.
