In the telecom sector, equipment suppliers are starting to embrace virtualization technologies, including cloud computing, software as a service (SaaS) and virtualization. As reported in this TMC article, Alcatel-Lucent recently revealed cloud-based efforts to open carrier APIs to application folks, as well as to outfit these software types with tools to test and distribute their wares.

Equipment suppliers are offering solutions that leverage virtualization technologies.

"The vendor back in December unveiled a trio of new offers – the Application Exposure Suite, the Open API Service and Transformation Service – aimed at helping network operators and developers more easily enable and create new applications that are manageable, reliable, scalable and secure. Laura Merling, vice president of Alcatel-Lucent’s developer strategy, told NGN magazine in mid-February that now the company is offering cloud-based solutions that takes those efforts to the next level by not only exposing APIs, but also providing an end-to-end ecosystem through which developers can build, test, manage and distribute their applications."
