The Ecosystem for Open Gateway NaaS API Development

GSMA Open Gateway is a framework of common network Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs) designed to provide universal access to operator networks for developers. With the support of 25 mobile network operators (as of April 2023), GSMA Open Gateway helps application developers enhance and deploy services more quickly across operator networks via single points of access to the world’s largest connectivity platform.

This white paper introduces some concepts of an Open Gateway Network as a Service (NaaS) architecture and sheds light on the relevant demarcation points, to let GSMA Open Gateway stakeholders (customers, operators, aggregators, and technology providers) know the scope and touchpoints of the participating organizations and understand how each of them contribute.
