Alpharetta, GA, June 27, 2023 – Athonet, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, global leader in private network technology, approved new members to the 5G Consortium, a vendor ecosystem of companies and organizations to promote the deployment of private mobile networks.

“We launched the 5G Consortium a year ago in response to customers asking for end-to-end solutions that were already certified to work together for private networks,” said Simon O’Donnell, president of Athonet USA. “As we test new hardware and services and bring them to customers in real-world business cases, we are able to expand the offering and reach new industries and countries.”

The goal of the 5G Consortium is to mutually promote an ecosystem of products and services that support LTE, 5G and CBRS private network deployments; collaborate in marketing the consortium; and conduct testing between products to ensure solutions are interoperable with each other and within the private LTE and 5G cellular environment.

New members to the 5G Consortium bring additional global expertise as well as hardware and services capabilities.
