"Vendors with attractive network API platforms and compelling go-to-market strategies will have an extraordinary opportunity to aggregate network capabilities and make the network available as programmable infrastructure across operators and domains." 


Vendors are scrambling to build a new generation of API platforms that aggregate network capabilities using standards-based APIs. Once aggregated, these capabilities will need to be exposed to developers through differentiated northbound APIs to make them easy for developers to consume. Vendors face a variety of commercial and technical challenges to bring such platforms to market, including the scale of the undertaking to expose entire networks to developers.
