EVOLVED-5G announces the first release (Release 1.0) of the 3GPP CAPIF Core Function

EVOLVED-5G announces the first release (Release 1.0) of the 3GPP CAPIF Core Function, developed by project partners: Telefonica I+D and Fogus Innovations & Services P.C.

To avoid duplication and inconsistency of approach between the various API specifications that 3GPP has released, the development of a common API framework (CAPIF) has been considered. CAPIF includes common aspects applicable to any northbound service APIs. As such, it is a complete 3GPP API framework that covers functionality related to: on-board and off-board API invokers, register and release APIs that need to be exposed, discovering APIs by third entities, as well as authorization and authentication. CAPIF functionality is considered as a cornerstone in the realization of 5G openness, since it allows secure exposure of 5G core APIs to third party domains, and also, enables third parties to define and expose their own APIs. Indeed, CAPIF has become already a fundamental feature for the 3GPP SA6, targeting the interaction of Verticals with the 5G system. More precisely, CAPIF compliance is required in i) the development of Vertical Application Enablers (VAEs) for various industries (V2X, Factories of the Future, etc.), ii) the realization of the Service Enabled Architecture Layer (SEAL), as well as iii) the implementation of the service side of Edge Computing services.
