Gintel Featured in Leading SDP Report: Innovation in API Exposure Recognised

Gintel has been identified as an innovative and important vendor by Heavy Reading in a recent Service Provider IT Insider. Focusing on value evolution in the SDP vendor ecosystem, the report highlights the increasing importance of API exposure for the creation of digital ecosystems by operators.

The report, “SDPs get retooled for digital services ecosystem”, notes that API exposure is necessary to create new business opportunities with OTT players and partners. As many in the industry now recognise, while OTT service providers can represent a threat to traditional operator business models, they may also represent an opportunity. Operators have valuable network assets that can be exposed to business partners, but they need to do so via secure and reliable gateways.

This is, of course, nothing new, but the difference today is that innovative operators have leveraged solutions to accelerate API exposure and to realise these ambitions without waiting for standards to be defined by interminable working parties. Instead, operators are acting on their own, embracing change and delivering the innovation that developers need. We’ve been at the forefront of these initiatives and our Telco Service Gateway solution powers API exposure for Telenor.

In this model, APIs are exposed to strategic business partners, enabling innovation and application development to thrive. Our TSG solution has the performance and scalability required to deliver API consolidation and performance for any operator that wants to build an ecosystem of partners. Interested?
