They need a system that can easily integrate their products and services. Open ecosystem where players can easily plug into is the key. New digital service providers require an environment that allows them to accelerate their APIs strategies, whilst maintaining alignment to TM Forum Standards. Our API Sandpit has been designed with these expectations in mind.
This API Simulator is a unique platform and has been created for 3 key reasons:
– to deal with the interoperability challenge.
– to help accelerate development through providing a reference implementation to follow.
– to show the APIs to be suitable for new types of services and to support the latest thinking in delivery of fibre and MEF services.
The API Simulator has been showcased as a Catalyst project at the annual TM Forum Live! conference (Nice, France on May 10, 2016) and at the FTTH APAC Annual Conference (Bangkok, Thailand on May 17th, 2016), providing a sandpit environment, and was demonstrated to several potential vendors and service providers alike.
