Call Management APIs

Nokia Call Management APIs give developers ready-access to IP-communications features built into carriers’ mobile, fixed and cable networks. They accelerate the creation of enticing, high-performance services for consumers, enterprises and vertical markets. As a developer you have an access to many call related events available for external applications. They trigger different actions depending on the use case and actual scenario e.g.:

  • Get notified when the call is busy or properly answered or calling party is not reachable
  • Allow, deny or redirect the calls as you please
  • Play text to speech, audio or video in a call or even allow users to select what they want
  • Set up conference call with another party immediately invited on top
  • … and much more depending on designer creativity

How to make it is easy by following our interactive API documentation with Swagger. Then it is even more smooth with the use our APIs and SDKs in whichever language you feel comfortable with.

If you are not familiar with Nokia TAS platform, you will find some helpful information by pressing the button Call Management API below:

Call Management API

Some examples / Use cases

Here come simple examples of ideas which might resound well with peoples’ every day needs:

  • Adding user to a call when the doctor calls his elder family member e.g. grandma => after she answers, user is also joining a call to help her later on with an understanding of treatment options
  • Blocking calls to a child during school time and play a message to the caller
  • Managing user’s availability and call handling options depending on mashed up connected car data
  • Starting and managing a Conference call with additional person depending on who is originally calling => e.g. adding parent on top when the child is called by an unknown number
