HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), today announced its Open Application Programming Interface (API) is gaining momentum in enabling service orchestration, customization and analytics through third-party platforms. ADTRAN offers a complete RESTful (Representational State Transfer) API within its broadband, enterprise and Wi-Fi access portfolios. As a result, the company makes it easy for a diverse ecosystem of service providers, channel partners, enterprises and third-party developers to create unique customer applications, differentiate network services and automate network operations to save time and increase revenue.

Many service providers are challenged by the complexity associated with implementing, scaling and creating customized services that address individual customer demands. Traditional Wi-Fi solution vendors open some API features such as presence, captive portal and guest access, and broadband infrastructure providers are moving towards open APIs as part of their SDN initiatives. ADTRAN provides a fully open RESTful API that supports advanced flexibility in service automation to improve operational efficiency; service orchestration to deliver better user-experiences; and analytics to gain insight on network usage and users.

For example, a NY-based art school leveraged the ADTRAN Open API to create a device registration portal so its students can safely register game consoles, smart TVs and other connected devices on the school’s wireless network. This capability gives the school an extended clear view into what devices are on the network and helps them better provision bandwidth and network traffic. Additionally, a nationwide service provider is using the Open API to allow customers to centralize the management and provisioning of any wireless access point at any location, eliminating the need for manual intervention from the service provider or the customers’ network administrators.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
