Your welcome Mike, thanks everyone for all the great questions. 

Steel

Great job, Mike and Joann. Thank you.

Author

all tmf open apis are rest based and we are extending them to cater for hypermedia, so these will all be very compatible and will open up new opportunities for companies that apply them 

 

Steel

Thanks everyone for joining us. And thank you Joann.

some telcos have teams of develoepers today.  however, i think hackathons provide good opportunity for the telcos to engage with lots of developers.  some telcos expose capabilities today to developers, so a guarded yes, as some already do. 

 

Steel

what roles will HTML 5 and open web play in regards to APIs?

Author

re question on RFPs from telco... they are asking for relevant apis to the RFP, so for example product catalog, product ordering, product inventory management apis

Steel

re enterprise v's end user... the apis are designed for enterprise grade solutions, i think the ultimate value is in the B2B2C space, so the end user should gain through improved consistent customer experience

 

Steel

re how the telcos are deploying the apis.  the apis are deployed in 14 countries today and aiming for 24 by the end of the year

 

Steel

Joann, will telcos need to learn how work with developers, or even hire their own teams of developers? 

Author

Open APIs can be used with security standards such as Oauth and connectID 

 

Steel

i see that either the 3rd party or the CSP could be the aggregator of new services, depending on context.  The aggregator or curator will design the new services based on best in breed.  

The operator will bring infrasturture capabilities but also some of their rich services.  Hence the notion of complex value fabrics!

 

Steel

yes, governance is a high priority.  we have prioritized it in the tmf open api project.  

 

 

Steel

Great show, thanks! Looking forward to hosting next week's program with Adam Dunstan.

Here's one from below Joann:

Joann - At a very high level, do you see the operator's model then evolving into an app aggregator for third-party apps/services -- so the 3rd party brings the best-of-breed tech and operator brings network capabilities and subscriber, billing realtionships etc? 

 

Author

Governance is not a high priority? I suppose every community is different and some can be left to their own devices, as it were.

Platinum

I'm in agreement on the IoT ecosystems

Author

Are there security concerns stemming from opening up APIs? How can they be managed?

Author

Enabling IoT ecosystems

Poll answer: Enabling IoT ecosystems

unlocking data silos is another top issue

How well are telcos progressing in developing and implementing APIs to partner with other telcos?

Gold

How does the Open API initiative relate to the 5G PPP service model and 5G architecture interfaces (towards the enterprise customer for the various verticals)?

Steel

Wow. Eliminating robot down time sounds great. So too does the smart cities usage. 

Platinum

Do you think that's more of an enterprise oriented opportunity, or consumer-oriented (in terms of end-user)?

Author

What types of APIs are operators asking for in their RFPs?

Gold

And what's the timeline for that, in your opinion?

Good morning/afternoon everyone!  Remember to turn up your volume on the computers.  At the top of the hour an audio player will pop up on your screen.  If you don't see it, try to press F5 to refresh your screen. Remember, there's no slides for this it's just a discussion, so be sure to post your questions, comments and thoughts on the message boards and we will join you on the chat after the audio stream.

Platinum

Hi Great weather here in the Bay Area
Steel

Stay safe @Michelle and have that weather radio at the ready. We've been lucky so far here in IL.

Platinum

I think "interoperability" might be one of my favorite concepts in tech -- if only it were always possible!!

Platinum

Good morning all! It's good to see a busy room. The weather here (Tornado Alley, Texas) is nice for now, but is supposed to turn severe in the afternoon.

Platinum

Looking forward to hearing from Joann on today's show.

Platinum

Looking forward to the show today! How's everyone doing this morning? Beautiful weather in NC.

Author
Will be interesting to hear how this could affect broader strategies for operators in time
Author

am looking forward to this!

Steel

Hello to all :)  I do hope to attend should be interesting show and chat after :) 

Platinum

looking forward to this

Steel

Looking forward to hearing from Joann!

Author

Truly open API's and rapid integration and deployment are the dream -- it will be interesting to see how far the TM Forum has been able to make it a reality. Facilitating rapid deployment of new apps, both in-house and 3rd party developers, would create entirely new business opportunities for service providers. 

Author

looking foward to this show!
