Flowroute announced this past week that beroNet has joined its Technology Partner program. Together, the pair means to allow beroNet’s voice-over-IP (VoIP) gateways to natively interact with Flowroute’s cloud-based communications services.
beroNet hails from Germany where it manufactures VoIP hardware that can be managed from within the cloud. Its personal mission makes it a good fit for this partner program and should help it expand its reach as a global company. In fact, beroNet CEO Christian Richter commented that this partnership marks one of the initial relationships his company has seen with regard to the North America region.
“We are excited to be partnering with Flowroute, one of our first communications services partners with deep session initiated protocol expertise in North America,” Richter said. “During the testing, we have found the team at Flowroute to be helpful and enthusiastic to ensure every call works flawlessly and as expected with their service.”
Flowroute’s announcement comes also with the message that these two companies have now joined their individual ambition to make communications services simple for end users and other companies’ product developers. Regarding that latter group, both Flowroute and beroNet have created their own application programming interfaces (APIs) to give developers a way to utilize the full feature set of cloud services.
The Flowroute cloud comes with support for voice and texting, so those methods of communication can make their way to developers through API calls. In this way, the cloud services in question can spread to partners with little extraneous effort on Flowroute’s part. Partners may have their own visions for how to develop mobile or desktop apps, but they will need the communications infrastructure to make those apps work as planned. This is where APIs become important; they allow both the service provider and application developer to specialize.
All About the API will discuss this state of affairs and how it helps companies of all sizes spread their infrastructure and build new products and services.
Sean Hsieh from Flowroute will participate in a session titled “Bringing Telecom Innovation to Market Faster with APIs” on Wed. July 20 at 9:30 a.m. which will explore how APIs, from carriers and PaaS providers, enable innovation with telecommunications in a flexible, yet simple manner.
Interoperability testing between Flowroute and beroNet has already shown those two players what this partnership can become. Flowroute commented that the beroNet VoIP gateways passed these test with a thirst for more. Both companies appear to look forward to worldwide expansion helped by the lift that this service-hardware pairing will give them.
A rapidly increasing need for APIs and similar measures is expected to drive big gains in this market through 2021.
