WAC Network APIs @ OverTheAir 2011

  1. 1. Introduction to WAC NetworkAPIs @wacapps !"#$%"&()*$"%+ !"#$%&(#)*")+*, Page 1
  2. 2. •  WAC: the wholesal… what?•  Operator Network APIs•  API technical overview•  What’s next•  Competition•  Q&A Page 2
  3. 3. What is WAC?•  “The Wholesale Applications Community, an open global alliance made up of the world¹s largest mobile phone network operators and manufacturers and is dedicated to making life easier for developers to create and distribute compelling digital content” Page 3
  4. 4. In other words•  WAC is a ‘not for profit’ organisation that leverages its members commitment to deliver innovative developer tools based on industry-standard web technologies to help the developer ecosystem•  WAC works mainly in 2 areas: –  Web application platforms (WAC apps) and operator distribution –  Operator Network APIs Page 4
  5. 5. Video overview Page 5
  6. 6. APIs  that  work  across  operators   Page 6
  7. 7. Leveraging  (and  hopefully  helping  evolve)  industry  standards   •  First authorization mechanism: OAuth •  Payment API based on GSMA OneAPI REST (plus extension borrowed from OMA ParlayX) Page 7
  8. 8. APIs  that  work  across  pla<orms  •  SDKs provided for Android and Web (JSP)•  Upcoming SDKs for JavaScript, Phonegap and PHP•  However, you can also code your own Page 8
  9. 9. But how does it work? WAC Gateway Operator WAC Endpoint Operator  discovery   User  AAA  -­‐    OAuth   Query   Operator   Billing/   NAPI  Payment   Support   Oauth  proxy   Systems   NAPI  Payment  proxy   Provisioning  Client   Developer  Portal   Provisioning  Server  (App   Billing  Aggregator/ Metadata,  Dev   WAC  SeJlement   SeJlement  System   Metadata)     Page 9
  10. 10. Life of an app: registering Page 10
  11. 11. Life of an app: protocols •  It’s as easy as 1-2-3 (and sometimes 4) 1 discover operator{application-id}{application-id} 2 request user authorization 3 make the charge to the user bill 4 check the status of the transaction {transaction-id} Page 11
  12. 12. Life  of  an  app:  pushing  to  prod,  counNng  the  money  •  At the moment we are working on a Beta phase with some selected developers, but we have space for some more innovative apps!•  After production deployment, WAC centralizes the settlement back to the developer (so no worries about multiple checks, currency conversions, etc…) Page 12
  13. 13. And  you’re  good  to  go  across  pla<orms   Android (as widget) Android (as native app) Page 13
  14. 14. And you’re good to go across platforms Cross browser HTML5 (no plugins) Page 14
