UK & INDIA: Aepona has been chosen by Vodafone India, one of India’s leading telecommunications service providers, for the launch of a new platform that will serve as a central access point for Vodafone’s business partners such as independent software vendors, application developers, web-based service providers and enterprises.
The solution, based on Aepona’s award-winning API Monetization Platform (AMP), will provide these partners with access to Vodafone’s nationwide telecom and IT capabilities via APIs, enabling the external partner ecosystem to deliver smarter and more contextually relevant services to Vodafone’s subscribers.
The new platform will allow Vodafone India to develop and implement new business models by exposing its core network, informational and billing assets as web-based APIs, allowing partners to create and enrich a wide variety of business solutions, consumer applications and content-based services.
In addition to exposing and monetizing API services, the Aepona platform will also be used as a centralized settlement system for existing subscription-based Value-Added Services.
This central platform will connect to Vodafone’s network services across all 23 Circles in India, allowing partners to reach and bill all of Vodafone’s 147 million-plus mobile subscribers.
