Thanks to Cebeo, the former Belgolaise bank in Brussels Central Station will have a second life as the Brussels Mobility Centre. Both the Brussels transport company STIB-MIVB and Mobiris, the control centre for Brussels Mobility, are scheduled to be operating under one roof by the beginning of 2021. The aim of the Centre is to streamline the transport system in Brussels, thanks to closer communication between the different services. Cebeo's network service played an indispensable role in the design of the data centre required for this transition. The first set of equipment in this move will be installed by September.
In its new location, STIB-MIVB can have complete control over the tram, metro and bus systems, which is far more preferable to the current situation where these sites are operating over six cities. Mobiris will also will monitor all tunnel control and road traffic. The team behind this project consists of 50 network specialists from Cebeo and SPIE Belgium, who have been supervising the construction of the data centre from the very beginning.
Speaking about their partnership with Cebeo, SPIE Warehouse Manager Jonathan Debève said, "We are working for a very demanding customer here. Cebeo is a very responsive partner in this regard, offering the right solutions at the right time. And just as importantly, they are providing fast delivery that have never caused unnecessary delays to the project."
