for powering worldwide digital transformations

the best scalable, mission-critical reliable and performing core network

The Athonet EPC gives the opportunity to be used with radio solutions from Tier 1 vendors or radios from more innovative radio vendors. Athonet EPC fills the gap between MNO Cores that cannot scale down and novel cores that have non reliability or scaling.

Software-based LTE core that integrates with any radio and scales from small to large deployments

Athonet EPC is a carrier-grade core that has been deployed in the field for more than 15 years, with over 700,00 active private SIMs and 1000 licensed installations. The Athonet EPC is certified to work with radio access networks (RAN) from many of the top vendors and innovative new companies. Athonet EPC has the unique ability to scale up to support millions of subscribers, as well as fit into smaller enterprise deployments while still offering the high reliability of carrier-grade networks.

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.
