Description / Explanation

The educational authority of Hainaut is boosting connectivity through a unique digital campus which provides similar services to all schools and education centres (e.g. eduroam, govroam, free Wi-Fi networks, security access, educational platforms and access to the academic network). It relies on a hybrid solution combining optical fibre from Belnet (10Gbps symmetric) and black fibre from Sofico to connect the main sites throughout the region (with a point-to-point or multi-point radio terrestrial network) and feed all the peripheral schools. The province still counts many white and grey areas in terms of high speed connectivity and some relay-antenna sites are using high points (such as water towers or public buildings) to provide a clear point-to-point connection.
