GSMA Anuncia el OneAPI Exchange

-- La Nueva Solución Técnica Integra sin Problemas Servicios de Operador en Aplicaciones Móviles, Proporcionando Experiencias Excepcionales para los Consumidores

BARCELONA, España, 25 de febrero de 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GSMA anunció hoy una nueva plataforma técnica flexible, el OneAPI Exchange, que proporcionará capacidades de red a aplicaciones móviles. Esta última fase de la iniciativa global de OneAPI, la cual facilita una cooperación más estrecha entre operadores y desarrolladores, ha sido llevada a cabo con operadores móviles líderes, tales como AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefónica y Vodafone. El OneApi Exchange será operado por el proveedor de tecnología líder Apigee.

"El OneApi Exchange promete elevar la experiencia de aplicaciones móviles para los consumidores," dijo Michael O'Hara, Director de Marketing de GSMA. "Al soportar relaciones más estrechas entre operadores y desarrolladores y una mayor inter-operatividad entre las diversas compañías, la plataforma llevará a un acceso sin problemas a aplicaciones móviles fascinantes con funciones mejoradas. Los clientes finales se beneficiarán de los servicios del operador que ya conocen y en los que confían, como facturación, mensajería e identidad del operador, ya integrados dentro de las aplicaciones que elijan."

Nueva Plataforma Flexible para una Colaboración entre Operadores y Desarrolladores 
La nueva iniciativa incorpora el trabajo llevado a cabo por la Wholesale Application Community (WAC), la cual integrada dentro de GSMA en julio de 2012. El OneApi Exchange, que en la actualidad se encuentra en forma de prueba de concepto funcional, mejora esa capacidad dándole a los operadores la opción de proporcionar a los desarrolladores bien sus propios interfaces de programación personalizados (APIs) o bien APIs estandarizados. Esto conlleva una mayor flexibilidad para que los operadores participen en el programa del OneApi Exchange, de acuerdo con sus propios objetivos de negocio, al tiempo que también proporciona beneficios de escala y alcance a sus desarrolladores mediante la inter-operatividad de API.

Cuando un desarrollador selecciona y se registra con el programa de desarrollador de un operador, se pueden construir aplicaciones que utilizan los APIs de ese operador. El OneApi Exchange también permite que un desarrollador especifique con qué otras redes del operador les gustaría que funcionara su aplicación, por lo que los servicios no están limitados a los clientes de un solo operador. La plataforma mapea sin problemas los APIs usados por la aplicación en aquellos usados por el operador del consumidor.

Este enfoque federado permite que los operadores personalicen los servicios disponibles en sus propias plataformas, mientras siguen llegando a un mercado en masa, o bien exponer las capacidades de su red a desarrolladores a través de APIs estandarizados.

"El OneApi Exchange es un modelo completamente nuevo para inter-operatividad de API que simplificará y acelerará drásticamente el desarrollo de aplicaciones de telecomunicaciones accionadas por API en un mercado global. Nos complace enormemente proveer una solución de vanguardia accionada por tecnología Apigee a GSMA y a sus operadores móviles, y esperamos hacer muchos lanzamientos exitosos en este año venidero," dijo Chet Kapoor, Consejero Delegado de Apigee.

Globalización de la Solución OneAPI 
Como parte de un programa más amplio de OneAPI, el OneAPI Gateway fue lanzado comercialmente en 2012 con los operadores canadienses líderes Bell Mobility, Rogers y TELUS y fue operado por Transaction Network Services (TNS) y Aepona. Esta plataforma, que proporcionó acceso a aplicaciones que usan APIs de red al 93 por ciento de los consumidores canadienses, se integrará en la solución global OneAPI Exchange.

La ubicación estandarizada, mensajería y APIs de pago ya se encuentran disponibles comercialmente en Canadá a través de OneAPI Gateway. Una API de identidad estandarizada, que permite que los consumidores se registren con aplicaciones sin la necesidad de compartir una identidad y clave de usuario con terceros, estará disponible en el OneAPI Exchange global en el segundo trimestre de 2013.  Una API de pago se pondrá en marcha también este año en el OneApi Exchange. También existirá la posibilidad de que otros proveedores de tecnología colaboren en desarrollos de infraestructura técnica en un futuro.

Oportunidades para Desarrolladores 
A través de la plataforma OneApi Exchange, los desarrolladores podrán crear aplicaciones "más pegadizas", mejoradas por funcionalidades de operadores incorporadas expuestas por medio de APIs. La cooperación más cercana entre operadores y desarrolladores facilitará el lanzamiento mundial de sus aplicaciones.  Usando el OneApi Exchange, los desarrolladores pueden acceder a APIs de red usando tecnologías web abiertas y estandarizadas, permitiendo una fácil integración en todos los tipos de plataformas como Android, BlackBerry, iOS y Windows, así como WebApps, que van dentro de navegadores de internet en los teléfonos móviles y las plataformas HTML5 nativas de FirefoxOS, Tizen y Ubuntu.

Además, el OneApi Exchange permite que los desarrolladores mantengan una relación directa con su operador elegido y sus recursos de desarrollo. Dentro de este ambiente, pueden subscribirse a un API de red del operador y elegir los operadores adicionales con los que les gustaría que funcione su aplicación. Todos los datos de facturación, mediciones, y datos de uso son racionalizados entonces a través de un solo operador, eliminando la necesidad de registrarse complejamente directamente con múltiples compañías.

"Los consumidores en todo el mundo usan cada vez más aplicaciones móviles en sus negocios y en sus vidas personales," continuó diciendo O'Hara. "Ahora existe una oportunidad fascinante para que la industria móvil proporcione soluciones que simplifiquen el proceso de desarrollo de las aplicaciones, y que aceleren el tiempo para comercializar y facilitar un alcance mundial. El OneApi Exchange ayudará a llevar la experiencia del consumidor a otro nivel superior."

APIs de Red en Acción en el Mobile World Congress 
Una variedad de demostraciones de aplicaciones móviles mostrarán APIs de red en acción. Entre ellas:

  • El Ubuntu Phone OS lanzado recientemente por Canonical pilota una autentificación mediante un registro de operador por medio de un simple clic y proporciona opciones de facturación de operador para la tienda de descarga de música Ubuntu One;
  • Un proyecto de alquiler de bicicletas y servicio de pedido de pizzas de Apigee;
  • MYAndroidProtection que protege sus datos móviles contra pérdidas, robo o software malicioso y MYMobileKidsProtection que define límites para niños al usar smartphones, ambas de MYMobileSecurity.

Los asistentes al Mobile World Congress 2013 puede experimentar esas demostraciones en Connected City, Hall 3, Stands 3B2 y 3C2 y también en el GSMA Pavilion ubicado en Congress Square.

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
