Aria Systems Reaches Silver Tier in TM Forum’s Open API Conformance Certification Program

29 November 2021

Aria’s inherently open and API-oriented billing and monetization platform enabled the company to gain conformance within weeks 

San Francisco, CA – Nov. 30, 2021 – Aria Systems, the leader in helping enterprises grow subscription and usage-based revenue, today announced that it has attained Silver Tier status in the TM Forum Open API Conformance Certification Program.

As part of its commitment to the TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture (ODA) Manifesto, Aria worked to gain certification for six APIs that enable communication service providers (CSPs) to standardize and lower the cost of integrating Aria into their IT and business support system (BSS) ecosystem. Because Aria is natively a multi-tenant, API-driven architecture designed to openly interoperate, it was able to achieve this significant milestone within a very short time span.

Collectively, the new APIs support standardized and secure access to Aria’s core commerce and party management functions. This ODA aligned approach enables CSPs to build a flexible monetization foundation that can commercialize agile 5G networks, new business partnerships, and hyper-scale services – all things that are difficult to achieve using inflexible, legacy BSS systems.

“Congratulations to Aria Systems for achieving silver level Open API Conformance Certification,” said George Glass, Chief Technology Officer at TM Forum. “We appreciate the team’s commitment to TM Forum and to the Open API and Open Digital Architecture standards which create value and deliver growth across the whole ecosystem. They will help deliver the operating agility and customer experience required to drive digital transformation and successfully monetize 5G.”

In September, Aria joined an ecosystem of leading telecoms technology providers in signing the Open API and ODA Manifesto. The manifesto is designed to replace traditional operational and BSS architectures with open, interoperable, technology platforms. With more than 370 APIs already published and in use across multiple industries, the development of telecoms-specific open applications is a natural extension of Aria’s architecture. With additional APIs in the pipeline, Aria expects to reach Gold Tier status in the weeks ahead.

“The success of digital transformation projects in the telecom industry is dependent on access to best-of-breed and flexible monetization capabilities that can be integrated quickly at low cost,” said Brendan O’Brien, Aria Systems’ Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer. “Aria’s platform is perfectly suited to provide the agility and interoperability required by CSPs seeking modular, automated platforms that can accelerate digital transformation initiatives. Achieving silver level conformance certification is a further reflection of our continued commitment to the telecommunications industry.”
