Manila, Philippines – Globe, a PH-based telecommunications firm, has recently announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding with the GSM Association, with the goal of enhancing the interoperability and delivery of mobile services across different networks worldwide through collaboration and standardisation.

In this collaboration, Globe will be granted access to the GSMA Open Gateway, an Applications Programming Interface facility that represents a significant shift in how the telecom industry designs and delivers services within an API-driven economy. 

With this, developers and cloud providers could gain access to operator networks via single points of entry or access, enabling rapid service deployment across the world’s largest connectivity platform. This strategy will leverage a common set of open-source APIs that can be reused for different purposes. 

Furthermore, GSMA’s Open Gateway unlocks the full potential of 5G networks, enabling developers to create relevant and transformative services that can utilise Globe Network’s 5G capacity and security.

Ernest L. Cu, president and CEO at Globe, said, “Today marks a milestone for Globe as we embrace the GSMA Open Gateway initiative, teaming up with 40 mobile network operators to develop Mobile Network Open APIs.”

“This groundbreaking effort allows real-time access and interconnection with the Globe network via open global APIs, opening up numerous opportunities for delivering more value to our customers and generating new revenue streams,” added Ernest.

“Leveraging open APIs across various sectors will help us significantly scale our ICT portfolio, even as we pursue our mission to solve our customers’ pain points at scale. Enabling seamless integration and innovation will significantly help API development and improve user experiences,” he further explained.

“We are incredibly grateful to GSMA for providing an opportunity for mobile network operators to explore and unlock the potential of open APIs and 5G technology. GSMA’s vision and initiative have paved the way for groundbreaking solutions across multiple industries, enhancing how we live and work. We look forward to continued collaboration, driving innovation, and delivering transformative solutions to our customers,” he said.

Julian M. Gorman, Asia Pacific head at GSMA, also said, “It’s great news that Globe Telecom and the mobile industry in the Philippines are getting behind our global GSMA Open Gateway initiative. By doing so, they’re helping developers gain universal access to operator networks both within the country and around the world through a set of common APIs.” 

“This will help drive the mobile economy and the launch of new services that deliver better customer experiences, combat fraud, and unleash new functionality in 5G networks. We welcome Globe Telecom to this innovative new programme,” he concluded. 

The GSMA’s Open Gateway debuted, featuring eight network APIs, including SIM Swap API, Quality on Demand API, Device Status API, Number Verification API, Simple Edge Discovery API, One Time Password (SMS) API, Carrier Billing-Check Out API, and Device Location API. 

These APIs empower various functionalities, ranging from strengthening security and preventing fraud to enabling secure authentication and facilitating location-based services.
