Computable Awards 2024: Vote for Orange Belgium


Orange Belgium has been nominated for two Computable Awards, the leading ICT prizes in Belgium and the Netherlands, with two special cases we have the pleasure of introducing to you here. Are you impressed by these projects? Then don’t forget to vote for us!

Founded in 1968, Computable was the first technology magazine published in Dutch. Today, not only is it the most important independent media platform for CIOs, ICT managers and ICT professionals in Belgium and the Netherlands, it also organises the Computable Awards. On 29 and 30 May, it will award 18 prizes to notable IT projects. Orange Belgium has been nominated in two categories.



Wi-Fi for school

To accelerate the digital transformation in the Brussels education system, Orange Belgium teamed up with Irisnet and Cisco Meraki to install a powerful and secure Wi-Fi network in 240 secondary schools in the Belgian capital. This is a complex operation, as every school is different and requires a specific configuration and installation.

Nevertheless, Orange Belgium succeeded in creating fast and stable internet access for each of these schools. And then we decided to take it to the next level. Striving to increase the satisfaction of the schools through a customised approach that upgrades the network infrastructure, Orange Belgium achieved a proactive optimisation of network performance through real-time visibility and advanced analysis of trends and patterns. With the aid of fast internet access through network segmentation, students can engage with the learning material in an interactive and advanced manner.

This project is nominated in the category IT Project of the Year in Education.



Remote surgery

Surgical procedures are becoming increasingly complex and require an ever-growing level of specialisation. On top of this, there is a shortage of specialised surgeons. Barco, Orange Belgium and KU Leuven university developed a solution together that allows surgeons to collaborate remotely with the teams on-site. Thanks to the new possibilities of 5G, this is now becoming reality. 5G is essential to this project: even if the surgeon is in a remote location with a large number of mobile users, the accuracy, stability and reliability of the connection must not be compromised. Current cellular technologies and Wi-Fi cannot guarantee this low jitter, latency and bandwidth, but 5G can. Meanwhile, the research continues. We are currently working on a project that will make it possible to operate surgical robots from a distance over 5G, allowing an expert to take over the procedure remotely at crucial times.

This project is nominated in the category IT Project of the Year in Health.
