5G APIs: Five Monetization Tripwires

See the full Research Perspective at


Network APIs offer MNOs the opportunity to finally realize significant returns on their substantial investments in 5G infrastructure. They can enable seamless integration between applications and networks, unlocking a wide range of use cases across industries.

However, achieving this will require a departure from traditional business practices. MNOs must be willing to embrace openness and collaboration by engaging with developers and other ecosystem players to co-create innovative services.

Network APIs represent a strategic imperative for MNOs seeking to unlock value in the 5G ecosystem. By embracing these interfaces and fostering collaboration across the industry, MNOs can overcome the challenges of monetization and realize the full transformative potential of 5G technology.

But this does raise several questions that MNO need to address:

  1. How is the competitive landscape / value chain evolving and how to compete or collaborate with non-telco players?

  2. What are the ways of differentiating APIs?

  3. What is the best monetization strategy for your business for optimizing revenue growth?

  4. How to optimize APIs based on the requirements of specific customer groups?

  5. What are the benefits and challenges amongst both enterprises and the develop community regarding 5G APIs
