Deutsche Telekom signs partnership with Voxeo Labs
Voxeo Labs, the leader in real-time communications and telecom APIs, is committed to putting the unexploited potential of the carrier network into the hands of developers; and the new partnership with Deutsche Telekom in Europe is one more step towards this objective.
With the agreement, Tropo API will act as a marquee addition to Deutsche Telekom’s Developer Garden, which is an online marketplace where developers can find, offer, sell or buy reusable pre-built and -tested software code components.
By using Voxeo Lab's Tropo API developers can make and receive phone calls and text messages from any web or mobile application. A simple web-based API, with pay-as-you-go pricing, allows creators to use features such as voice recognition, text-to-speech, conference calling and call recording.
"This is a huge win for developers everywhere, because for the first time a 'Tier 1' communications giant is fully embracing the Tropo API into their own developer program," Johnny Diggz, Chief Evangelist for Tropo, told New Europe. "This is a real game-changer."
Voxeo Labs President Jason Goecke, explained that Deutsche Telekom’s acquisition of the Tropo API “gives developers immediate access to new geographies in partnership with an industry giant”
Besides, in the coming months, developers will have access to more carrier network capabilities, as Voxeo Labs CTO Jose de Castro said, adding that “the world is changing and Deutsche Telekom understands what it will take to push their industry forward.”
Tropo.com was launched in 2009 and since then Voxeo Labs has maintained the view that carriers have a unique position in the market. Also, the company signs partnerships to deliver developers and customers with a simple, yet world-class API.
