DevOps Engineer

General Purpose

Athonet provides a complete in-house software-based LTE/5G connectivity platform that runs in cloud or virtualised data centre environments and on ruggedized hardware. The software solution has been fully built by Athonet and has been put through the toughest tests by CSPs, Enterprises and Governments. Our software has been deployed worldwide and has received the most important awards in both the Telecoms industry (FIVE Global Mobile Awards 2016-2019) and the Mission-Critical industry (THREE International Critical Communications Awards).
Our platform allows customers to break free from the restrictive, expensive, proprietary telco-centric architecture of legacy solutions and embrace the true potential of wireless networks – capturing new sources of revenue whilst also massively reducing CapEx and OpEx. We enable your transition from the monolithic networks of the past to a new agile connectivity platform for a federation of networks.
