Vodafone India to build APIs with Aepona's platform
Aepona platform will also be used as a centralized settlement system for Vodafone India VAS
Like AT&T, Deutsche Telecom and others, Vodafone India has chosen the API route to create a long tail of application developers who embed the usage of its telecom facilities in their mobile apps.
Vodafone India has chosen Aepona, a leading firm in monetizing cloud and network services, as its partner to expose its telecom facilities via application programming interfaces (APIs). It will launch a new platform that will serve as a central access point for its business partners such as independent software vendors, application developers, web-based service providers and enterprises.
Based on Aepona's award-winning API Monetization Platform (AMP), Vodafone India will provide these partners with access to Vodafone's nationwide telecom and IT capabilities via APIs, enabling the external partner ecosystem to deliver smarter and more contextually relevant services to Vodafone's subscribers.
The new platform will allow Vodafone India to develop and implement new business models by exposing its core network, informational and billing assets as web-based APIs, allowing partners to create and enrich a wide variety of business solutions, consumer applications and content-based services.
In addition to exposing and monetizing API services, the Aepona platform will also be used as a centralized settlement system for existing subscription-based Value-Added Services.
This central platform will connect to Vodafone's network services across all 23 Circles in India, allowing partners to reach and bill all of Vodafone's 147 million-plus mobile subscribers.
