Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/20/2014 -- The term API stands for Application Programming Interface. An application programming interface (API) is a protocol intended to be used as an interface by software components to communicate with each other.

Similar to Enterprise APIs, telephony API's (telecom API) enables data dissemination to third parties over a defined interface, protocols, and procedures. However, telecom networks inherently contain a lot of data for and about their users, devices, usage, behaviors, status, and configuration.
