Athonet provides a complete 100% software-based mobile core for voice and data networks that runs in cloud or virtualised or enterprise data centre environments using standard off-the-shelf hardware.
Our platform allows wireless operators and end-users to break free from the restrictive, expensive, proprietary hardware centric architecture of legacy solutions and embrace the true potential of mobile networks – capturing new sources of revenue whilst also massively reducing capex and opex.
Athonet’s cloud native mobile core network software makes it dramatically simple and highly affordable for network operators, enterprises and other non-telco users to deploy and manage fully functional MEC solutions enabling vast new markets such as the Industrial Internet, Public Safety, Connected and Autonomous Cars, Smart Grids and Cities as well as other demanding vertical markets. Athonet’s software has been used successfully since 2011 to launch some of the first MEC networks in smartgrids & utilities, automotive & drones, industrial automation, mining and other vertical industries.
Besides the immediate benefits to existing network operators and users, our platform also provides a highly efficient solution to bridge the digital divide – turning the last 4 billion unconnected people to mobile networks into The Next 4 Billion.
Athonet was founded with the vision that as mobile broadband became a reality, the explosion in voice and data traffic would require a completely new network paradigm based on a highly distributed software based network with intelligence everywhere. Our mobile core was created from the ground up as a completely software based solution to combine the simplicity of IP and cloud-based architecture with the rapid advances in processing power coming from the computing industry. Athonet provides a complete software-based mobile packet core solution (EPC/PC) which also includes a Home Subscriber Server (HSS), Home Location Register (HLR), Voice-over-LTE (IMS for VoLTE), Voice-over-WiFi (WiFi calling) and LTE Broadcast (eMBMS). It is designed for centralised or highly distributed deployments in Tier 1 Mobile Operators, Challenger Telcos, Governments and Public Safety or mission critical applications.
