About Netaxis Solutions

Netaxis Solutions was founded in Brussels, Belgium, in 2010 by a team of four experienced VoIP telecoms engineers. It quickly established itself amongst the telco community in Benelux and begun winning Systems Integration contracts for the roll out of Session Border Controllers and Softswitches. Having designed and developed networks it was then asked to support and monitor them prompting it with specialised software solutions to establish a second line of business. Working closely with the telco community enabled Netaxis Solutions to identify systems requirements and successfully introduced these as products now used by a large number of customers.

In 2017 Netaxis Solutions embarked on a programme of international growth and has opened offices in The Netherlands, Italy, France and the United Kingdom.
