JT has joined GSMA as an Open Gateway Channel Partner. This distinguished partnership underscores JT’s role as a global leader in fraud and identity solutions and aligns with GSMA’s initiatives to tackle global fraud and cybercrime.

The GSMA Open Gateway initiative marks a significant evolution in the telecoms industry, providing app developers with access to global mobile operator networks via standardised network Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs) for the first time. This framework is unique in its ability to streamline service integration, reducing development costs and complexity, and fostering innovation.

The initiative benefits the entire mobile ecosystem by providing a single point of access to the world’s largest connectivity platform. With 28 published network APIs, such as SIM Swap and Number Verification, it facilitates faster service deployment across operator networks.

Henry Calvert, Head of Networks at GSMA, stated: “GSMA Open Gateway is a framework of common network APIs that provides developers with universal access to operator networks. Supported by mobile network operators representing two-thirds of the global market, it allows developers to enhance and deploy services swiftly across these networks via single access points to the world’s largest connectivity platform. This framework marks a significant milestone in global mobile identity verification, equipping businesses with advanced tools to boost security, reduce fraud, and enhance user experience in accordance with the GSMA’s global Open Gateway initiative.’’

For businesses, the GSMA Open Gateway offers quicker time-to-market for new services, simpler global deployment, and reduced operational costs, enhancing their return on investment. For mobile network operators, it presents new revenue streams by monetising network data.

Clare Messenger, Head of Mobile Intelligence at JT, remarked: “JT’s involvement as a GSMA Open Gateway Channel Partner highlights our dedication to innovation and excellence in the telecoms industry. This partnership will enable us to deliver advanced solutions, driving global progress in fraud prevention and identity management. Additionally, it allows us to extend our leading Mobile Intelligence solutions to more organisations and developers.”

This unified ecosystem will unlock the full potential of 5G networks, enabling businesses to launch innovative services that fully leverage these networks.
