A RESTful API is an application program interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to GET, PUT, POST and DELETE data. Using a REST API with callbacks (or webhooks) allows for a robust, scalable, asynchronous API model.
How Bandwidth is Involved with REST APIs
Bandwidth provides a REST API for phone number management and line features, and another REST API for sending and receiving phone calls and text messages. Bandwidth also offers a Voice XML model for call control called BXML.
What Are the Benefits of Bandwidth’s REST APIs
Using Bandwidth’s REST API allows for extreme call control flexibility. Each phone call can be modified in real time and at any time while the call is active. Calls can be bridged and unbridged as needed to build unique experiences to fit any use-case.
