Athena IT & Telecom Solutions: Offering Optimal Solutions for IT and Telecom Infrastructures


The IT and telecom infrastructure market is witnessing a transformation with new factors coming into play, such as network virtualization, cloud-based services, and the integration of heterogeneous networks. The sector handles a huge amount of data and requires high storage capacity which has increased the need of converged infrastructure solutions. The telecommunication industry has been experiencing transformation from recent years with more demand for sophisticated, customized communications services. In this transformative and highly competitive environment, cost effective product and service delivery is of paramount importance as the market focuses increasingly on IP and wireless.

Trying to achieve this objective, most infrastructure solution providers face challenges related to Knowledge Transfer from Principals, Shortage of skilled and certified Technical consultants, and Incapability of large project execution. Athena IT & Telecom Solutions, headquartered in Bangalore, is ahead of them because of its dual expertise in IT and telecommunication domains. The company leverages its expertise to provide end-to-end IT and telecom solutions with proactive support for both IT and Telecom infrastructure through dedicated Network Operations Center (NOC). Athena remotely monitors all the devices under contract and if required it undertakes onsite support too. For medium size clients, the company takes care of manpower deployment to handle the complete infrastructure instead of providing infrastructure support.

The company’s domain knowledge on both IT and Telecom solutions and focus on few principals with commitment helps it to get the best of the solutions and commercials for its customers, thus enabling it to provide optimal solution to its customers. “Cisco has a wide range of products which enable us to provide winning solutions to both startups and large enterprises.

Partnering with Cisco gives us the edge over competition to provide advanced and comprehensive IT infrastructure solutions to our customers,” says Harikrishnan Srinivasan, Founder & Director, Athena IT and Telecom Solutions. The company offers consistent post-sales service to all clients at all times irrespective of the size of client or size of value.
