HGC, AT&T use MEF's 3.0 Sonata APIs to simplify network ordering
HGC Global Communications (HGC) has completed the successful integration of MEF LSO Sonata APIs with AT&T, enabling seamless ordering of HGC's network services.
"The collaboration between HGC and AT&T will uplift overall service availability and speed to market capability among carriers. It is the team's comprehensive effort to interconnect and collaborate with global operators, thus driving in-country adoption across the telco business ecosystem," said Ravindran Mahalingam, senior vice president of international business at HGC.
MEF's set of standardised LSO Sonata APIs enable frictionless inter-provider services across global carriers, offering dynamic and on-demand end-to-end connectivity services, with enhanced interoperability and compatibility among service providers.
"The standardisation of business application interoperability is a critical component in evolving the industry to a cloud-like experience for telecoms services, building towards fully-automated networks that raise the bar for customer experience,” said John Nolan, vice president of global connections and alliance management at AT&T.
“AT&T's integration with HGC is an important step as we extend our global carrier collaboration based on the MEF LSO Sonata API standards,"
With this integration of MEF LSO Sonata APIs, global customers can virtually and seamlessly order Carrier Ethernet services, with significantly accelerated delivery cycle times and enhanced provisioning process with HGC's software defined network.
“Worldwide cooperation among providers like AT&T and HGC Global Communications is vital for accelerating the industry's transformation to dynamic, assured, and certified services across a global federation of automated networks," added Nan Chen, president of MEF.
