More coverage, simplicity, safety and reduced costs

With thousands of people working collaboratively in campuses and schools, and with external communities, there can be intense network communications requirements. Administrative, scheduling, reporting and coordination tasks are increasingly requiring both voice and digitalized workflows on smartphones, tablets and laptops. Campus users are also using the agility delivered by wireless to find productivity and utilization gains from new, flexible ways of organizing themselves and their workflows.

problems to solve and constrains to care

Main challenges

1

Traditional fixed line plant and extensions

maintenance and adjustment is getting increasingly expensive

2

Campuses need a highly secure unified communications platform

for all their voice and data requirements, rather than have separate data and voice networks

3

Campus staff bring their own personal mobile devices to work

and are increasingly wanting to incorporate them into workflows, rather than carry additional devices

4

Wi-Fi based unified communications suffer from poor performance

in crowded environments

5

Video and data intensity requirements

our solution

how we solve them

Private mobile networks are perfect for campuses as they offer the security and the coverage of public cellular plus the simplicity and cost-optimization of Wi-Fi.

Athonet’s private mobile network solutions cut through the duplication, cost and complexity of current systems with a single, highly-controllable network.

Private mobile networks bring the following advantages:

1

clean, new, unused spectrum dedicated to your campus

2

3-4 times better coverage compared to 5GHz & 6GHz Wi-Fi

3

native ability to support mission-critical communications, including high definition video

4

telco-grade voice, dialer-based integration with enterprise PBX, integration with PSTN, and optionally, mobile operator cellular networks

5

superior access control and security

6

in-built security capability to allow network segmentation, access control and policy-based isolation of particular users, applications and traffic

7

simplicity of guest worker access with eSIM

8

native ability to support mobility requirements across large campus estate

9

reduced operational cost and complexity
