NEW YORK, June 01, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constratus, LLC today introduced the Constratus Consent Engine, the first in a suite of software products Constratus is developing to help network service providers integrate into the digital ecosystem. The Constratus Consent Engine leverages the Apigee Edge intelligent API platform, including Apigee’s backend-as-a-service (BaaS) technology, to allow subscribers to share information about their location and preferences, as well as to enable applications to send push notifications and monitor online behavior.
The Constratus Consent Engine represents subscribers’ preferences for an application – whether a subscriber has “opted-in” to share his or her information with an application in a service provider’s network. Subscriber-specific information collected and stored in the Consent Engine can be different for each application and each service provider asset.
The Constratus Consent Engine leverages the Apigee Edge API platform to allow for the rapid introduction of these capabilities into service provider networks. For example, service providers offering ad-based solutions can use the Constratus Consent Engine to allow subscribers to share their contextual and personal information and to deliver personalized experiences in a way that can be implemented much faster than other industry solutions.
Other examples of functionality enabled by the Constratus Consent Engine are whether the customer allows sharing the location with a specific application, whether an application should be allowed to send push messages to a customer, whether to allow tracking of online behavior, or whether subscribers want to enable specific applications access to other private subscriber preferences.
Constratus is a consulting firm and services provider to top telecommunications companies and enterprises worldwide. The company uses leading-edge technologies to deliver best-in class solutions.
A member of Apigee’s partner ecosystem, Constratus solutions are constructed around top industry technologies, including Apigee Edge. The Constratus Consent Engine uses out-of-the-box policies, Apigee BaaS, and Node.js and can be configured to client API specifications.
“Our knowledge of telcos and service providers and the challenges in building scalable API systems for them led us to Apigee,” said David Feuer, Principal at Constratus. “We view the Apigee Edge API Platform as an ecosystem of its own for powerful and flexible solution delivery based on APIs. This enables scalability and participation in the digital economy for service providers and developers. We believe Apigee Edge is an ideal technology platform for rapidly bringing specialized API-driven solutions, like the Constratus Consent Engine, to market."
“APIs are the underlying connectors of our digital world and are key to accelerating innovation,” said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Apigee. “With this new solution for service providers, Constratus is leveraging our intelligent API platform to drive the creativity of next-generation mobile networks. We look forward to continuing working with Constratus as they execute on their vision of a software suite that utilizes Apigee as a development platform."
