The Wholesale Applications Community, a telecoms industry group that’s committed to building an open applications platform, has nine new members. 32 additional members were announced last month.
Aepona, Camber Tech Inc (BVI) Limited, GClue, Gemalto, Infraware, KT Innotz, Sharp and Sony Ericsson have joined as associate members, while VimpelCom has joined as an operator member.
The WAC has also confirmed that its operator members will be expected to use the GSMA’s OneAPI set.
Peters Suh, CEO of the WAC, said “We’re of course delighted to see more members joining WAC – it continues to demonstrate the very strong interest that we’re seeing from companies across the ecosystem in providing their customers with choice. The GSMA OneAPI makes it easier for web-centric developers to use the information and capabilities provided by mobile operators to create network-enriched applications and services – and exactly meets the WAC requirements for simplicity and effectiveness.”
