Alex Sinclair, CTO, GSMA

The past year or so has seen a renewed interest in application programming interfaces (APIs). The Open Gateway initiative from the GSMA was launched in early 2023 to establish a framework of common network APIs, designed to give developers universal access to operator networks. Alex Sinclair, chief technology officer of the GSMA, provides an update on the current status of the Open Gateway initiative and news of the latest operator engagements. He also discusses the relationship to the open-source Camara project and other collaborative efforts. He talks about the response from the developer community and efforts to better engage with them, as historically, telcos have found this somewhat difficult, and details the trends we are now seeing with regards to API exposure, such as engagement via hyperscalers, platform specialists and direct routes to enterprise customers.
