Title: Real-time transaction synchronization among peer authentication systems in a telecommunications network environment

Abstract: System and method for synchronizing transaction data in real-time within a network environment. The system and method include and involve a plurality of authentication subsystems. Each authentication subsystem has a data storage subsystem and a processor. The processor is operative to receive a service request from a network user, and to authenticate the network user within the network environment in accordance with the service request. The service request causes a state stored within the data storage subsystem and related to the network user to change. The processor is further operative to transmit a synchronization request in real-time within the network environment, to receive another synchronization request from another authentication subsystem of the plurality of authentication subsystems, and to allow the processor to subsequently authenticate the network user within the network environment in accordance with the other synchronization request.
