SONOC Launches Voice & Messaging APIs for OTTs

Network Infrastructure

SONOC, a global innovator in voice and messaging management, has launched programmable APIs to give users greater control over their OSS/BSS and switching services to optimize and enhance their existing systems.

Over-the-Top (OTT) players, Carriers and Service Providers can rapidly deploy new modular capabilities using SONOC’s RESTful APIs and have full control at a granular level, of all features available in the platform.

SONOC enables users to spin-up capabilities associated with advanced routing, traffic management, bilateral management, billing, quality monitoring, fraud control, cloud-based SBC and switching, as well as many others. Unlike other voice and messaging management platforms, SONOC removes the need for an “all or nothing” approach to platform deployments and replaces it with an agile model for building a component-based architecture. RESTful APIs can be accessed by SONOC’s customers via a simple online library Which enables instant plug-ins to other applications.

“The launch of APIs is a game changer for OTTs, Carriers and Service Providers. They no longer have to deploy a platform and work by the vendor’s rules. We are presenting our capabilities and enabling them to build and optimize solutions that meet their specific needs. This changes the dynamics of the OSS/BSS market and will accelerate innovation in back-office systems,” said Luis Benavente, CEO at SONOC. “Almost every capability on the SONOC platform can be accessed via API and quickly deployed by IT teams within a telco’s organization. This is about removing the barriers between OSS/BSS and switching platforms and their users. The future really is programmable.”

SONOC allows users to quickly and efficiently manage and optimize their businesses with a user-friendly set of modular tools, reports and capabilities. It combines OSS/BSS, anti-fraud solutions, traffic monitoring, analytics, and SBC and switching in a single seamless platform. Voice and messaging service providers gain a customizable platform that they can shape to meet their business objectives.

“Traditional wholesale voice and messaging management is a closed system that typically cannot be adapted to meet the needs of an individual organization. That’s an out-of-date model. It no longer matches the open and software-centric needs of our users. SONOC’s API-First approach enables telcos to automate and accelerate more of their processes at the pace they want to move,” said Craig Phillips VP of Product Management at SONOC. “IT teams gain a set of tools that they can use to create the solutions they need.”

SONOC is trusted by some of the largest and most innovative telecoms businesses in the world by solely focusing on solving challenges and enabling customers to be successful in a changing telecoms market. By amplifying and transforming the potential of a growing number of businesses, SONOC aims to be part of a new era of telecoms.
