Vodnjan, Croatia, 29 November 2023 – Global communications platform Infobip has partnered with three mobile network operators (MNOs) to launch the first Camara-compliant Network APIs in Brazil – under the GSMA Open Gateway initiative. The collaboration is part of Infobip’s CPaaS enablement solution for telcos that allows them to easily launch and monetise their emerging services, such as their core network capabilities being exposed through Camara APIs.

Infobip partners with mobile network operators to launch Camara-compliant APIs in Brazil

Infobip is collaborating with Brazilian MNOs Claro, TIM Brasil, and Vivo (Telefonica Brasil) to offer the first Camara-compliant Number Verify, SIM Swap and Device Location APIs. Number Verify, the first of these APIs, aims to combat identity fraud by verifying the possession of end-user’s mobile phone number with the mobile network operator’s data connection. This collaboration is made possible by Infobip’s Open Gateway channel partner status, which enables brands and developers to integrate Camara-compliant APIs through one single point of access, Infobip’s cloud communications platform.

Open Gateway is a GSMA-led telco industry initiative that transforms telecommunications networks into standardised platforms exposed to developers, based on a framework of APIs designed to provide digital services like Device Status, Device Location, Number Verification, and Quality on Demand. The initiative enables developers to break into new markets while customers benefit from new services and functionality.

Leonardo Siqueira, Data Monetisation Director at TIM Brasil, said: “Our mission is to create a safer and more protected socio-economic environment. The development of these solutions rests on the strong assumption that through channel partners like Infobip, the expansion of this initiative will be fast and effective across various corporate ecosystems, leveraging opportunities and addressing diverse challenges.”

Debora Bortolasi, B2B Executive Director at Vivo, said: “The Open Gateway initiative is a milestone in the transformation of the telecommunications sector, with a positive impact on several industries in the market, as it enables the conversion of communications networks into programmable digital platforms through global and standardized APIs, benefiting a large digital ecosystem from startups to large companies.”

Mijo Soldin, VP of Telecom Strategy at Infobip, said: “This collaboration demonstrates Infobip’s global market-leading CPaaS position, our strong developer relations alongside our history of strategic telco collaborations. All are essential to increase the potential for a successful collaboration and faster time to revenue. The launch of the Camara-compliant API in Brazil marks an important step for Infobip, helping to democratize the messaging ecosystem globally, hand in hand with telcos. As an innovative company and Open Gateway channel partner, we will continue to build and offer additional Camara-compliant APIs, working closely with our telco partners to expose customer experience-friendly APIs to developers.”

Market-leading CPaaS enablement solution

Integrating Camara-compliant network APIs is one of the key steps in building the Infobip’s CPaaS enablement solution for telecoms, together with its SMS Messaging Hub and RCS MaaP building blocks. Infobip’s CPaaS enablement solution, combined with the company’s strong connections with mobile network operators and the developer community, empowers telcos to simplify monetising CPaaS opportunities in a more unified way. RCS MaaP can be used by operators to enable and monetise A2P RCS traffic via the Google platform.

Infobip has recently been named a Leader in the Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) market by analyst firm Gartner. In the first Gartner Magic Quadrant for CPaaS, Infobip is recognized as a Leader for its overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.¹
