Verizon, Vonage team up to bring 5G network APIs to developers

Verizon and Vonage have signed a Memoriam of Understanding (MOU) to integrate Verizon network APIs into the Vonage platform. This collaboration will allow developers to access network services and capabilities.

The companies will collaborate to develop new APIs, creating an ecosystem of network APIs for developers to build secure, reliable, and new applications, the companies say.

The companies add that Verizon’s network services integration with Vonage’s platform allows enterprises to enhance consumer engagement throughout the customer journey, resulting in improved experiences and increased brand loyalty.

The collaboration aims to develop advanced APIs that will enable access to network capabilities, driving the global industry forward. Vonage and Verizon say this is crucial for unlocking the full potential of the 5G network, accelerating digital transformation and generating additional value from network assets.

Srini Kalapala, Verizon’s SVP of technology and product development, encourages collaboration with companies like Vonage to enhance network accessibility for developers and drive progress in the connected world.

“Working with global partners to make network capabilities available on a wider scale will provide exceptional value for enterprises and consumers,” adds Kalapala.

Verizon says that it offers a reliable 5G network with capabilities from the core to the edge. As a touchpoint for enterprise and consumer customers, Verizon also notes that it provides access to strategic network services.

Verizon notes that it has a long history of providing APIs and is committed to expanding its offerings. The partnership with Vonage allows for easy integration with business applications and provides developers access to a variety of network APIs.

According to Seckin Arikan, the executive VP and head of communications platform as a Service (CPaaS) and Global Network Platform (GNP) Sales, this partnership enables Ericsson to offer network APIs in the U.S. market.

“With a mature platform in place, Vonage is uniquely positioned to aggregate Verizon APIs into an intuitive and consumable format that can be readily adopted by developers,” comments Arikan. “Together with frontrunner operators such as Verizon, Vonage is excited to bring new, next-generation network APIs to market.”

Vonage’s Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) enables developers to integrate communication capabilities into applications using APIs. Vonage notes that it offers voice, video, messaging, verification APIs, and AI features to speed up app development.

Verizon Business, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Eagles, launched two ‘On the Fly’ express shops at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in 2023. These shops are powered by Verizon’s 5G technology.

Verizon introduced these AI-powered stores on the main concourse and in Pepsi Plaza, allowing fans to purchase food and beverages without the need for a cashier.
