    Hi VIn
    The TMF Open API program creates and maintains specifications for APIs across the telecommunication business. But TMF does not supply implementation of the APIs. Vendors in the telco space (such as Amdocs, Ericsson, Oracle, Huawei, NetCracker, WhaleCloud, and many more) implement these APIs in their commercial products. Additionally, many telcos will choose to implement these APIs themselves, for example in an integration layer across legacy systems.
    Other software (UI layer, Experience layer) consumes the APIs.
    Your best start would be the Open API Portal here.
    But basically you need to think about your business requirements (are you a telco, vendor, SI, or what), use cases, and system flows. This will help you see where the APIs can give you value.
    Hope it helps.

    How are you,
     
    The open api is the documentation for the rest apis (One of the tools to implement is swagger).
    The open apis of TMforum is the specifications or standard proposed by the TMForum for apis related to telco business. If you want to start , try to this link ------ Development Course ------ https://projects.tmforum.org/wiki/display/API/Developer+Quick+Start+Guide

    I hope it helps you
