Telecom efficiency at former mining site in Houthalen-Helchteren

At a former mining site in Houthalen-Helchteren, the New Administrative Centrum (NAC) can now be admired. All municipal services are housed there. Efficient communication was an urgent requirement there. And this has literally been built-in by Nextel in the new ecological space.
Ludo Dreesen, NAC system administrator: “The new construction work provided us with an ideal opportunity to upgrade all of the hardware and software for data and telephony. Nextel proposed a solution whereby all units could seamlessly communicate with each other via one data network: servers, switches, access points, computers, peripherals and telephony. With a link to the Vinkenhof retirement home. This is exactly what we were looking for.

CHALLENGES

  • A powerful wireless network for a new administrative centre.
  • Integration of Unified Communications.
  • Ability to log in to the network from fifteen sites.
  • Possibility for citizens to use the WiFi network.
  • Defining a telecom solution that takes into account the Infrax infrastructure.

SOLUTIONS

  • Construction of 18 data rooms, 24 switches and 2000 connection ports, and 80 access points in a redundant configuration.
  • Installation of Unify OpenScape Office with fixed and wireless devices for 400 users.
  • Training and guidance from the start.

BENEFITS

  • Enhanced efficiency of the municipal services.
  • Improved telephone welcome of citizens.
  • Permanent availability of municipal services, also after office hours.
  • Permanent availability of the  important emergency numbers, also in the event of power failure.
 

If necessary, we can still reach our dedicated contact person. All employees are aware of the significant added value provided by the new solution in terms of efficiency, reliability and user-friendliness.

Ludo Dreesen, NAC system administrator
