Alcatel-Lucent indroduces APIs to unlock the potential of 4G mobile networks

October 15, 2012 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Alcatel-Lucent is making it much easier for application developers to unlock the innovation potential in 4G LTE mobile networks by introducing a suite of application programming interfaces (APIs) to accelerate the creation of compelling broadband services to meet consumer and enterprise ever-evolving demands.

Nine ‘ New Conversation APIs ’ will give developers easy access to communication capabilities in service providers’ IP Multimedia Subsystem, the infrastructure that sits at the heart of 4G LTE and IP networks. These capabilities include high definition voice and video, audio/video conferencing, interactive voice, messaging and call control, which can be used to build services for both consumers and businesses.

APIs are the fundamental components used by web developers in writing applications and support the sharing of data and content between applications.To jumpstart the developer ecosystem Alcatel-Lucent is leveraging its external ngConnect program , which brings together service providers and apps developers as well as offering easy access to the APIs, along with a fast prototyping environment provided by the New Conversation API developer portal . The APIs are based on REpresentational State Transfer (REST), a popular, easy-to-use software architecture used to create applications for the Web.
