The partnership will also focus on data security. Finally, Proximus will provide coverage for the public passenger buildings with a 5G public network. Proximus will make this network the first functional 5G site in Belgium, accessible to the public, including the passengers. Already a few months ago, Brussels Airport launched the innovation process by a 5G-ready network for the airport operators, allowing the improvement of their operational efficiency and the development of other operational technological innovations. Through this partnership with Proximus, Brussels Airport wants to go further and provide 5G to its passengers as soon as possible, with the intent to provide an enhanced passenger experience.
‘Brussels Airport is a powerful catalyst for the Belgian economy, open to the world. As such, it is important for us to partner with another leading Belgian company to accelerate our digital development” commented Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company. “We are convinced that the collaboration with Proximus will help us to develop innovative solutions for our partners and our clients. It is indeed essential that we innovate with leading companies like Proximus which provide complementary expertise in fields that are very important to the aeronautic sector. This partnership will accelerate our strategic ambitions for digital transformation and facilitate the development and deployment of integrated digital solutions.”
