Telecom API Aggregator Companies to Manage Core APIs

The aggregator role is gaining momentum as developers create more innovative services

Aggregators of telecom Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) connect multiple carrier APIs with various other resources.   The main interest groups are API providers and third-party developers. The API aggregator role is gradually gaining momentum within the market as developers create more innovative services, and as operators can also provide mash-ups as end-products. Carriers may perceive aggregators as a threat, as an operator may suffer from a dependency on third-party services, and uncertainty in the provided services and APIs.

Understanding the Telecom API Value Chain

For an API to be successful, everyone in the value chain must benefit

The value chain for telephony APIs takes many forms depending on the specific capabilities of an API. Generically, the network API value chain initiates from carrier which serves as the primary resource pool for assets and capabilities. Through network APIs these assets are exposed to developers.

Developers may have to work in conjunction with Web/Enterprise asset providers to integrate functionalities with other applications or web interfaces.

The Challenge of Delivering OTT Video Quality Today, and into the Future

How do we ensure sustainable quality of service and quality of experience across the entire network?

Quality measurement is essential for any supply chain to be successful.  Video is no different.  A breakdown in the system causes unhappy customers, damages brand, and can ultimately be the downfall of the entire business. 

Today, we are seeing increasing quality expectations; UHD/4K, and High Dynamic Range (HDR), just to name a few.  And, as other new products and capabilities enter the market, every one of them will need performance and interoperability standards to properly integrate them and create value for the total system.
