Athonet Recognized in 2022 Gartner Market Guide for 4G and 5G Private Mobile Networks
ALPHARETTA, Ga., Nov. 17, 2022 – Athonet, a leader in private cellular network technology, today announced inclusion in the Gartner “Market Guide for 4G and 5G Private Mobile Networks” report as the one of 17 Representative Vendors and the only Specialist PMN Vendor for vEPC (mobile core).
The Athonet 5G Core is the critical software forming the single point of connection, command and control between enterprise systems and applications and the radios and devices in the private cellular network. The Athonet mobile core connects all the components of a mobile network and is the intelligence behind private cellular networks.
“We’ve seen incredible interest and demand for private networks this year and are pleased with the inclusion in this Gartner report,” said Gianluca Verin, CEO of Athonet. “Our more than 15 years of experience has helped us deliver private 4G and 5G networks across the globe in a range of industries for demanding customers that require high-quality and mission-critical communications.”
During the past year, Athonet created the 5G Consortium bringing together vendors that make up a private network ecosystem and introduced 5G and CBRS starter kits. In addition, Athonet also announced BYORAN® (Bring Your Own RAN) program giving enterprises and service providers the freedom to supply their own devices.
Gartner notes in the report that “Enterprise customers are using PMNs to either complement or increasingly replace traditional land mobile radio (LMR) technologies, such as P25, TETRA, or as an addition or replacement for Wi-Fi.”
With the forecasted increase in PMN, Athonet is well-positioned to meet the demand with its 5G Core and additional solutions.
