Belgian national research network Belnet signs multi-million euro contract with Infradata

Belnet enters into an agreement with Infradata for the support and expansion of its high-end network infrastructure. It concerns a contract of 13 million euro.

Selection of Infradata

Infradata has been selected by Belnet as the most economically advantageous offer in the public tender with European publication based on a list of strict criteria and sub-criteria based on quality and price. The framework agreement with Infradata will run for five years during which time Infradata will be responsible for the maintenance of Belnet's existing and future optical and IP network infrastructure, the delivery of additional equipment and the associated services.
