Myths and Misconceptions in Telco APIs

I’d like to share some of the myths and misconceptions I come across in my travels on telco APIs and more generally service innovation. 1) Twilio and Apigee are used in the same breath, as if they’re the same proposition. Twilio is an API publisher, this article from 2012 explains the difference. There’s a strong […]

Fun Times in Telecom APIs

It’s been a fun few weeks in the API space.  Lots of announcements and gossip which we’ve been discussing in the Linkedin Telecom API group.  Oracle and ACME Packet, Oracle and Tekelec, Intel and Aepona, GSMA and OneAPI Exchange, Apigee and API Exchange, Orange closing down some of its APIs, QoS APIs, WebRTC and more… The […]

ALU Open Sources apiGrove: API Management gets Interesting

ALU (Alcatel Lucent) has done something interesting in the API Gateway space with their latest announcement.  They’ve open sourced their API Management platform, it’s called apiGrove.  So rather than offering freemium access to an API gateway, they’ve taken the route of allowing developers to use apiGrove and do it themselves.  ALU have done open source […]

Dancing Slowly with Elephants. The Death of WAC.

Finally, someone was prepared to speak on WAC, pity it wasn’t the GSMA or WAC itself before the deal went through to demonstrate respect to the developers they keep talking about.  At least Apigee has declared the 5 year odyssey of WAC and JIL dead on arrival (2008-2012).  See the article here from TechCrunch, and […]

What’s the Difference between Aepona, Apigee, Twilio, and Voxeo?

I’m often asked what’s the difference between Aepona, Apigee, Twilio, Voxeo?  The diagram below is my attempt to provide a framework to understand the similarities and differences between the 4 suppliers.  This can only present a current snapshot and my view, other frameworks are possible, and of course all 4 suppliers have a future vision […]

MWC 2012 Summary: The Trials and Tribulations of Entering Middle Age

This year I brought my wife and 2-year-old son to Barcelona; we arrived on the Thursday before MWC (Mobile World Congress).  Barcelona is great for small children with lots of playgrounds, some with crèches that bring out their toys to play with making it great fun.  The restaurants go the extra mile in making the […]

What others are Saying About the “The Services Domain. Market Status, Case Studies, Analysis and Recommendations” Report

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” John Donne (1572 – 31 March 1631) In putting together the “The Services Domain. Market Status, Case Studies, Analysis and Recommendations” report, peer review is critical to delivering a quality product, no man is […]

Startups to Watch: Apigee, API Management

At the start of this year I created a white-paper around API management for Apigee (previously called Sonoa Systems).  Apigee is a 65-employee company with 55 engineers (10 working on the Facebook team), run on $40 million in funding from Bay Partners, Third Point Management Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, Juniper Networks and SAP Ventures. Its […]
