CHICAGO - October 30, 2012 - 4G World 2012 Conference & Expo - Aepona today announced that its API Monetization Platform (AMP) was named the best Mobile Cloud Enabler in the Best of 4G Awards. Winners were announced at the Best of 4G Awards Ceremony at 4G World, the only conference and expo covering the entire ecosystem of next-generation 4G mobile broadband technologies, taking place this week in Chicago.
AMP is a Telco-grade software solution that allows Service Providers to expose, manage and monetize their network, contextual, commercial and informational assets as easy-to-use APIs. New APIs that combine Telco, IT and external assets can be quickly created and launched to third party organizations, such as Enterprises, SaaS providers and application developers, allowing them to easily enrich their services with mobility features. AMP's integral Payments and Settlement engine allows API Services to be monetized through a range of business models, and enables application and content providers to charge for their services through the consumer's mobile bill. AMP can be deployed by network operators (Mobile/Fixed/Cable/MSO) or by cross-network Cloud Service Providers, either on-premise or as a cloud-based, managed solution.
The Best of 4G Awards, now in its fourth year, recognize businesses and organizations that are leading innovation and driving the adoption of 4G mobile broadband. The awards program includes a wide range of categories and was open to all members of the mobile ecosystem. All submissions were reviewed by an independent panel of judges comprised of the industry's leading analysts and academics.
"We are delighted to have earned this prestigious accolade, which recognizes the market-leading capabilities of Aepona's AMP solution", said Michael Crossey, Aepona's Chief Marketing Officer. "AMP enables Aepona's Service Provider customers to better serve the needs of their partners, to differentiate their API services from their competitors, and to monetize their core assets in multiple ways."
"The Best of 4G Awards celebrates excellence in 4G innovation," says Joe Braue, General Manager of 4G World. "The caliber of entries received in this year's awards was very high, and we congratulate Aepona for demonstrating outstanding innovation and leadership with their API Monetization Platform."
