It’s an exciting week for BlueVia. From today, Telenor Group is joining us to make its APIs available through the platform.
This is a big step for us, Telenor and Telefonica, as we strive to extend our global reach. Together, we currently reach more than 450 million customers. Our aim is to build on this, offering partners and developers the opportunity to build and market apps, content and services to a truly global audience.
When we launched the BlueVia platform in December 2010, we knew we had to experiment and find a way to provide value to developers and third parties. We have had our fingers on the market’s pulse as it has evolved, allowing us to adapt and find the best way to enhance ecosystems. As a result, we’ve focused on operator billing as a way to give Internet players easier access to our customers.
Telenor shares our belief in this approach and understands that joining forces in our effort will benefit developers, the ecosystems and, of course, our customers. Together we will surely launch new APIs founded on the knowledge we have gathered since the launch of BlueVia.
But we’ll talk about those plans another day.
Today is a day to celebrate. From today, BlueVia is an initiative of Telenor and Telefonica.
Jose Valles, Head of BlueVia
