Athonet opens a 5G laboratory dedicated to Fintech

“Financial institutions want to transition and evolve the way they do business to incorporate wireless technology, but face increased security threats,” said Nanda MenonManaging Director, Athonet UK “As the world moves from wireless-first to wireless-only, private 5G with its SIM-based security can provide better security than traditional wireless LAN solutions while capturing new opportunities. In the Athonet 5G Lab, we can show financial institutions how to enjoy wireless freedom with the security and performance they expect.”

With 5G, trading rooms and teams can adopt low-latency wireless technology with secure SIM-based authentication, transforming workflows and customer engagement with augmented reality and reality virtual, improve operational security and resiliency, and work remotely and reliably with secure private 5G networks delivered over SD-WAN and SASE. Wireless point-of-sale (POS) transactions can also be conducted more securely over the private 5G network.

Athonet, through its partners, also offers a 5G kit, SecuriCell, to fintech companies to test the security and performance of the Athonet 5G core. SecuriCell includes all the components needed to deploy a secure 5G private cellular network, including a 5G core, SIM cards, 5G smartphone, server, radio/cell, antenna and 5G CPE delivered in a rugged case. The kit also comes with VoNR support, a 36-month license, professional services, maintenance, and software upgrade.

The kit is available through Athonet’s authorized partners who have been selected to provide a state-of-the-art private network using Athonet’s open architecture. Athonet partners supporting the 5G Fintech Lab include Cellnex, Clarus Networks Group, COLT, Freshwave, Tata Communications Transformation Services and Wireless Infrastructure Group.
