Open API Conformance certification for suppliers verifies the successful implementation of Open APIs in commercial products with real-world deployments and is a recognized mark of quality and innovation.
TM Forum Open APIs have been widely adopted by the Telco industry’s IT practices as a standard interoperability method, with more than 640,000 downloads by 39,000 software developers from 2,500 organizations since launch. Mavenir was an early signatory of the Open API & Open Digital Architecture Manifesto, signaling its strong commitment to the design principles and essential standards required to enable a truly ‘plug and play’ set of technology capabilities, as outlined in TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture.
