Telcos look at open source

Telcos are apparently working harder to make their APIs suitable for a broader range of web developers, providing more Web 2.0-like or “RESTfull” interfaces (an acronym for the normal interaction between web clients and servers). We believe that the move is positive in that it shows the operators are aware they can’t make their developer programs work with complex event-based APIs. But we also believe that simple web interfaces are only suitable for the limited set of services that can be projected from a telco API direct to an end user. While we’re clearly biased, we believe this is a validation our open source ExperiaSphere (www.experiasphere.wikispaces.com) approach.
