Alcatel-Lucent Network Element APIs
Alcatel-Lucent’s devolution of network API gateway functions to network elements, third parties and its own developer portal still needs public validation, but is forward looking. However, it is also likely to prove daunting for smaller carriers. (8/6/2014)

Ericsson Service Enablement Platform – Unified Service Exposure
Ericsson’s Composition Engine is a very solid all-round product deployable standalone or with other components of the company’s MSDP. However, it stops short in some areas where rivals do a better job of making the offering more attractive. (8/6/2014)

HP API Management Solution
As a recent entrant, HP’s API Management Solution has very strong API control credentials and a spread of network element APIs to expose. However, HP faces stiff competition from Oracle with a clearer combined network and telco IT proposition. (8/6/2014)

Huawei Digital SDP API Enablement Platform (AEP)
Huawei has gone further than most in promoting the benefits of its API Enablement Platform among developers in the telecom API ecosystem. However, does its inclusion of third-party components make it more or less attractive to carriers? (8/6/2014)

Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper (OCSG)
With a growing portfolio of acquired network assets integrated to its platform, the OCSG is a strong challenger to platforms from major TEMs. Nevertheless, coming from behind, can the company also match TEMs and carriers’ IMS API exposure fervor? (8/6/2014)

ZTE SDP Unified Access Platform
ZTE’s network API management platform is technically sophisticated with strong multi-vendor interoperability, especially into legacy networks. However, the platform appears less well-equipped than some in smoothly extending to IMS network exposure. (8/6/2014)
