Axes Technology

Interview Procedure :

The information on the interview is pretty sketchy but it may consist of both technical grilling and HR interview

The written test is purely technical with stress on Networking, C, Operating Systems, Data Structures etc. You should be clear with the fundamentals of these and other core subjects. Questions are mainly multiple-choice though this may vary.

About The Company :

Axes Technologies(I) Pvt. Ltd. is a subsidiary of Axes Technologies Inc, Dallas, USA and was set up in 1995 in Bangalore. The Chennai center came up in 1997 and a second center was established in Bangalore in 1998.
Axes specializes in the development of telecom software. Axes has developed high quality software for Long Distance Tandem and Mobile Switches. Axes has state-of-the-art infrastructure and computing environment at its facilities spread over 50,000 sq.ft. Over 275 talented software professionals work here. Axes is a 100% export oriented unit - set up under the umbrella of Software Technology Park (STP) of the Government of India.
Axes products are currently being used by leading telecom companies all over the world. Axes is executing projects in the areas of Tandem Switches, Cellular Switches, STP, Network Management, AIN Peripherals and Digital Loop Carrier Systems. The Bangalore center has been certified for ISO 9001 by Underwriters Laboratories Inc., and is working towards achieving SEI CMM level 4.


Computer science branch students had 4 sections to
1 .General aptitude (simple - easier than RSAgarwal)
Q-11. was wrong it was relating to some fatal relationship. the other's were number sequencing,
GRE analogies, antonyms (abt. 10 q's). totally about 50 q's
2 .Microcontroller 8086 (basics only,some q's like max. unsigned number in 8086 ans = power16 ) there were some small codes you need to tracae.
3 .'c' was simple, there were some stubs o/p was to be traced. there was one bit wise 'or'
4 .I felt this the toughest (Java/C++/OSconcepts) Java and C++ were general questions, no progs. and os was easy. (i guess i got just 40 % right in this section)
