Panel Discussion

To successfully enable the new services required for future growth, telcos need to open up and expose their networks to application developers. Are APIs the best option for achieving this, and if so, how should this be approached? What level of support and commitment will a DSP need to demonstrate to the app developer communities? Will industry-wide initiatives have the necessary appeal for developers while providing sufficient innovation for competing DSPs? And what will the impact of these efforts be? What essential role can DSPs play in enabling digital businesses? For years, telcos have talked about exposing their unique network capabilities to developers, leveraging value above connectivity. It feels like the time could finally be right.
