It is time for us to draw up a summary of a year full of collaboration and innovative projects. In addition to some of our services maturing, the launch of our new website and our office move to WTC III, 2019 has been a pivotal year of implementation and adaptation for all our employees. In a few figures, here is an overview of our development at the dawn of a new decade that is already looking phenomenal.
Belnet will completely renew the optical backbone of the FPS Chancellery of the Prime Minister. The project allows the Chancellery to make its ICT service offering available to other government organisations more efficiently and more quickly. In this way, Belnet further strengthens its role as a trusted connectivity partner of the federal government.
Through Belnet, promising IT students have the opportunity to participate as a speaker at the prestigious TNC20 conference and present their idea to an international audience. The selected students await a unique experience with individual coaching and guidance.
Last month, Belnet increased the capacity of its primary connection to GÉANT to 100 Gbit/s. The upgrade is part of a general review of the external connectivity of our network. Its implementation has been accelerated in order to respond better to the needs of one of our affiliated research centres.
