American Roamer announced a public beta of its API (application programming interface). The API provides organizations with comprehensive access to vital geospatial network intelligence on telecommunications network availability, coverage patterns, and an array of other valuable information.
The API is a natural extension of the rich datasets and on-demand, analytical solutions that only American Roamer can provide. The public beta API allows developers to access American Roamer’s mobile network coverage catalog, including global HSPA, EVDO, LTE and WIMAX footprints. The API not only identifies coverage availability via XML or JSON, but also empowers users to overlay coverage patterns atop interactive mapping applications like Google and Bing Maps.
By leveraging the commercial API, solutions providers gain access to the world’s largest mobile network coverage catalog. With more than 1,300 coverage patterns spanning 225 countries, organizations can arm themselves with key insights into competitive intelligence, market penetration and demographic analysis.
“Although our API has been commercially available since 2010, we are opening it up to encourage widespread adoption and creative exploration. The API reinforces our commitment to rapidly evolving technology solutions and highlights the breadth and depth of the largest mobile network coverage catalog in the world,” said Chip Strange, vice president of products and technology at American Roamer. “Our unique ability to manage complex geospatial solutions gives our customers the intelligence to better serve their customers, gain a competitive edge and make sound business decisions.”
