About Activeport

Who we are, what we believe in and why it matters.

How it started

A group of Australia’s top engineers and Telco executives formed ActivePort in 2017, with the goal to advance networking technology and software solutions beyond the traditional, expensive and restrictive options available at the time. Bringing together the best in their field, to make a difference.

Today Activeport is a leader in Orchestration technology, providing global network orchestration and cloud connectivity, including SD-WAN NFV and Compute, for the Telecommunications and IT industry. 

Who we are

Our differences, our experiences, and our diverse and talented individuals give Activeport its edge. Now and in the future, our people will create and reimagine what drives our corporate culture- a community where people can truly be themselves, challenge norms and take it further.
