This paper describes the current state of open APIs for M2M applications as well as proposes a couple of possible changes and extensions. An open specification, presented as an Application Programming Interface (Open API) from ETSI, provides applications with a rich framework of core network capabilities upon which to build services while encapsulating the underlying communication protocols. Open API is a portable platform for services that may be replicated and ported between different execution environments and hardware platforms. The authors would like to propose the possible extensions for ETSI documents that, by their opinion, let keep telecom development in sync with the modern approaches in the web development.
