Telco API Landscape and Developers

In a fast moving API economy, telecom carriers must focus their attention on securely exposing services internally and to external partners and applications. Turning network services into resources easily accessed via APIs is the future for enterprises, including telcos. With the growth of smartphones and mobile Internet, people are increasingly showing more interest in mobile applications and content services and with the various APIs on offer, telecom operators have an opportunity to open up to new markets and ultimately generate new sources of revenue from their current customers.
