France Telecom (Orange) - Mobile API Publishing

Empowering emerging markets through API publication

Empowering emerging markets through API publication


Orange is the key brand of France Telecom, one of the world’s leading telecommunications operators. Orange’s strategy focuses on innovation and development of the company’s position in new growth activities.


The Business Challenge
Orange’s Nursery initiative fosters innovation through the publication of APIs. Additionally, the company’s Emerginov platform helps developers in emerging markets leverage these APIs. These strategies create significant challenges around packaging, securing and managing APIs.


The Solution
Orange deployed a Layer 7 SecureSpan SOA Gateway to

  • Define message-, identity- and interface-level security for APIs
  • Track API usage, monitor interface health and manage API versioning

The Results
By providing developers with secure access to APIs, Orange has created a far more agile IT platform on which to develop new offerings. The company has also overcome many of the barriers that had previously limited its growth in emerging markets.
