How to deploy Athonet 5G Core

Athonet 5G Core offers you complete deployment flexibility by allowing you to choose where to deploy your private network according to your needs.

Fully On-site

Manage the entire infrastructure by running it on server(s) or private cloud completely in house

Fully Cloud

Manage and run your private network on public cloud environment and resources

Hosted solution

All the advantages of the cloud combined with complete visibility and full control guaranteed by the Athonet Connectivity Platform

Hybrid Cloud

Keep your traffic under control with an on prem solution while leaving the signaling component of the
network on the public cloud

Take your first steps in private cellular with our starter kits for 5G-SA and CBRS.


Athonet NB-IoT

Our solution allows agile deployment of NB-IoT core networks at a national or local scale. This allows telcos as well as end users like smart cities,
industrial and enterprise campuses, utilities and other verticals rapidly to take advantage of dedicated IoT solutions using a distributed/regionalized architecture rather than incur the time delay, cost and complexity of monolithic centralized solutions.

Athonet BYORAN

There are numerous suppliers of radio access network (RAN) solutions on the market and it is essential to be able to choose the best one for you in total freedom without the fear of a locking in a single technology.

Our Bring Your Own RAN™ program offers a cloud-based dashboard with a single pane of glass for multiple radio management.

Frequently Asked Questions

Athonet don’t offer a fully locked-in, end-to-end solutions that restrict network evolution to radios, components and features that are from a single vendor. Athonet provides a core network that is designed to work with any radio vendor or radio form factor . We provides a flexible architecture that allows simple yet highly automated deployment of any core network function fully on-premises, fully cloud-based or hybrid architecture. We can use also a mix of private cloud, public cloud, fully on-prem, virtualised or bare metal infrastructure.
We can run the complete core network and management plane fully on the customers site or distribute or replicate functions in a variety of customer sites. Athonet has always had the view that customer’s know best how to use their own data and network. Hence we provide a large set of APIs that allow customers to integrate the private mobile network directly into their OSS and applications to monitor and collect network statistics and alarms directly into the customer’s control systems which includes configuration, monitoring and subscriber (SIM/eSIM) provisioning and management.

On the age of the digital transformation and the 5G time with the multitude of new use cases which could be deployed, it’s crucial that a trusted network connectivity vendor deliver solutions which are robust, simple to install and maintain and easy to be integrated in an open and innovative eco-system. Athonet core solutions are deployed in more than 100+ customers around the globe, deployed both on prem, on private and public cloud.
In 2020 our “Open 5G core” initiative has been the first live and public 5G SA core launch in a public cloud. Our core solution could be deployed in 10+ minutes only through automation tools, both in a local and geo-redundant configuration, where operation simplicity is one of our key design principles.
Openness has been historically (since the Athonet foundation in 2005) one of key characteristics of our products, including an open APIs framework to manage the solutions and integrate them in an application development framework.

Apart a reliable, performant and robust 5G connectivity, nowadays customers are asking for slicing, automation, voice and support for mission critical applications. Athonet 5G Core, already deployed in 60+ customers, enables a 5G 3GPP compliant end to end slicing solution. VoNR is already active in many of our deployments, encompassing our efficient IMS solution, slim, deployable in one single VM though delivering 3GPP compliant capabilities.
In our 5G core, mission critical services are already enabled and available through our MCPTT application partners via both legacy or even the recently standardized Service Based Interface.
