Axione, a Bouygues Energies & Services subsidiary, is a world leader in telecommunications infrastructure that delivers services to local authorities, telecommunications companies and components manufacturers.

Axione has expertise in the entire telecommunications chain, from design to implementation, maintenance, operation, management and commercialisation. Its activities are structured around three key areas:

  • Building/maintaining fixed and mobile networks

Tendering engineers, consultant engineers and GIS experts are based in the Technical and Consultancy divisions. They contribute and write bids in response to calls for tenders for different types of contracts, including concession-type contracts (Délégations de Service Public), Public-Private Partnerships and construction work relating to telecommunications companies' fixed or mobile network operations.

Once a contract has been won, deployment project managers supervise the engineering aspects and contractual management of the project.

The project management teams and contract managers are responsible for ensuring that the contract is executed correctly. To do this, they work with installation, commissioning and maintenance technicians and fibre optic technicians, who are responsible for maintaining equipment in line with client requirements, deadlines and safety regulations.

  • Telecommunications concessionaire

Local authorities issue calls for tenders to bring broadband and super-fast broadband to their areas. Once we have won a contract and the digital infrastructure has been put in place, our specialist teams sell and market the network to local Internet service providers (ISPs) and businesses.

  • Infrastructure operation

The Marketing department designs the brochure listing the services that the sales teams offer to our clients (ISPs) on the domestic and business markets.

The Networks department is responsible for the architecture, engineering and testing of our solutions, while the technical support teams manage incidents on behalf of our ISP clients. Our network is managed by technicians from Axione's operations department

Teams in the IS division are responsible for designing, developing, testing and operating the different information systems.

Senior tendering engineers are based in the Technical division and respond to public and private sector calls for tenders issued by local authorities as part of their local digital infrastructure development plans, such as those for construction contracts, concession-type contracts (Délégations de Service Public) and public-private partnerships. They analyse the specifications and make strategic decisions relating to the tender (such as selecting certain technologies and carrying out regional strategic analyses). They are also responsible for overseeing the entire process, from planning to coordinating the production of the tender and costing. Finally, they are involved in drawing up the business plan, as well as writing technical documents and commercial tenders.

Consultant engineers are based in the Technical and Consultancy/Planning division and act as the interface between the central Consultancy division in Malakoff and local teams. They are responsible for: coordinating between the Consultancy division and local teams; approving subcontractors; monitoring subcontractors and ensuring that they deliver the quality required; training land survey teams; raising technical issues with the central Consultancy division so that they can be taken into account in consultancy projects; improving the structure and content of deliverables, streamlining working methods; testing design studies during technical inspections; collecting field data for use in end-of-project deliverables; taking part in management and progress meetings (both internally and with clients); and organising schedules for consultancy projects with the central Consultancy division.

Deployment project managers are based in the Deployment division and are responsible for monitoring the financial aspects of projects and ensuring that plans are followed (carrying out monthly budgetary control, monitoring invoicing milestones, taking orders, etc.). Deployment project managers are responsible for managing network projects at national level, reporting to clients and planning work with construction teams. They also ensure that safety regulations are applied and observed.

Project managers are based in the Deployment division and are responsible for leading a team and managing a portfolio of construction projects. They organise the production of deliverables (technical inspections, detailed pilot studies); monitor budgets (taking orders, invoicing, adhering to turnover, gross margins and Project Management cost centres); report to clients (on a monthly and quarterly basis); and implement client specifications (processes, instructions, technical notes, team safety, etc.).

Contract managers are based in our regional offices and manage a portfolio of activities that include the following tasks:

  • organising phases of construction work (scheduling, approving completed work, inspections, supplies, site visits, etc.);
  • managing construction teams;
  • reporting (to clients and internally);
  • budgetary control.

Installation and commissioning technicians are based in our regional offices and are responsible for carrying out technical inspections prior to work commencing; writing reports; installing, commissioning, swapping and repairing electro-magnetic wave systems; and installing, commissioning and integrating 2G/3G/4G radio bays.

Fibre optic technicians are based in the fibre optic divisions of our regional offices. Their role is based around 2 key tasks: 

  • studies (FT chamber surveys, understanding fibre optic plans (DLI), using tablets (PC));
  • construction work (laying protective tubes, laying fibre optic cables in conduits and in buildings, fusing, reflectometry, commissioning routers).

Local development managers ('LDMs') are based in regional offices and raise the company's profile and awareness of our DSPs/PPPs among local authorities, local businesses and Internet service providers. They build relationships with a range of local economic stakeholders (consular chambers, business groups, competitiveness clusters, etc.) and can assess the overall potential of a particular area to contribute to economic growth in the region (passive infrastructure, business networks, etc.). Working closely with sales engineers and the concession manager, LDMs have expertise in all aspects of telecommunications and must stay abreast of developments in new technologies.

Sales engineers ('SEs') are based in the Sales division and are directly involved in the commercial development of our Public Initiative Networks (PINs). They categorise, target and approach local authorities that are likely to call upon our services, as well as identifying and canvassing major accounts (e.g. SNCF, RFF and RATP). They create and develop sales opportunities in collaboration with the group's subsidiaries in France and abroad. They mainly deal with councillors, local authority officials and local and national ISPs.

Telecommunications supervising technicians are based in our Network Operations department in Pau. They manage, monitor and handle incidents and adapt and improve procedures to account for faults encountered. They manage site teams during the day and provide support to night teams during major technical operations.
