OpenGateway Program Manager



Open Gateway is a GSMA-led telco industry initiative that aims to transform communications networks into platforms. This enables open telco capabilities in an interoperable, intuitive, and programmable way.


These capabilities are exposed through global, standardized APIs under the framework of CAMARA, the open-source project led by the Linux Foundation in collaboration with the GSMA.


Integrating telco capabilities opens an infinite world of possibilities: enhanced experiences during real-time events, autonomous drone control, more secure financial services or new generation services as telesurgery with XR. These are use cases based on an initial family of Telco APIs already available to drive new experiences in areas with great potential such as optimizing connectivity, communications, security in financial services, as well as privacy and security in general.
