BRIC

The Brussels-Capital Region is of course an IRISnet partner!

 

In 2012, the Brussels-Capital Region opted for a telecommunications network capable of meeting current and future demands, in the form of a fibre optic network.

 

This initiative benefits all of the Region’s regional and local institutions.
The choice to use a private partner, in a Public-Private Partnership, and to remain co-owner of the fibre optic network has turned out to be an excellent one.
Even today, financial results are higher than initially forecast in the business plan.

 

In recent years, the SCRL has also paid dividends to its shareholders and rebates to its mandators.
The partnership between the Brussels-Capital Region and IRISnet also contributes towards the Region’s security and the protection of its citizens and businesses.

 

Thanks to this closed and secure network, it has been possible to deploy a network of video-protection cameras throughout the Region and to check journeys on the road network for the Low Emissions Zone (LEZ) and the Regional Data Centre.

 

Without this network, the Region would not be able to rise to the challenges of tomorrow’s world.
