Ericsson announces partnership with DT


Ericsson has launched a commercial operator partnership to create new ways for operators to monetize their network investments and drive investments in mobile infrastructure.

Ericsson has announced a key milestone in the Company’s strategy to create a global network platform business with network APIs. Ericsson and Deutsche Telekom (DT) are launching a commercial partnership to offer communication and network APIs to developers and enterprises.

Building a global platform to expose advanced 5G capabilities – such as Quality on Demand, speed, latency, and location – through easy to consume network APIs is a key component of Ericsson’s enterprise strategy. This will allow developers and enterprises to integrate network features into their applications which will accelerate enterprise digitalization and create new ways for operators to monetize their network investments.

Börje Ekholm, President and CEO, Ericsson, commented, “Through network APIs, developers and enterprises get easy access to the advanced capabilities of the network to develop entirely new use cases. By creating a global platform business, Ericsson is redefining the industry and creating new ways to innovate through the network.”

Tim Höttges, CEO, Deutsche Telekom, commented, “At Deutsche Telekom, we are proud to be among the first network operators to make our network APIs available commercially, together with our valued partner Ericsson. APIs are a key strategic focus for Deutsche Telekom, underlined by our key role in the foundation of the CAMARA alliance, which aims to make standardized APIs available internationally.”

Under the brand ‘MagentaBusiness API’, Deutsche Telekom will offer access to Vonage communications APIs that are currently available as well as new network APIs. The commercial launch is a world-first in the commercialization of network APIs, with a direct interface to Deutsche Telekom’s mobile network.
