Brussels South Charleroi Airport is the second largest airport in Belgium in terms of passengers. In 2016, it processed about 7 million people, or an average of 125 flights per day. The government of Wallonia is one of the shareholders of the company that exploits the airport.
“Due to its changing nature and unpredictable course, this project can best be described as ‘tinkering with a moving car’: Getronics succeeded in upgrading and expanding our LAN and telephony network while our airport remained fully functional. An achievement only possible thanks to their flexibility, innovative approach and willingness to collaborate.”
– Frédéric Tahir, Head of IT BSCA
The airport is located near the city of Charleroi in the French-speaking part of Belgium, about approximately 50 kms from the country's capital Brussels. It consists of one runway and two terminals, the second one was put into service on Monday 30th of January 2017.
The transportation of passengers is the main function of the airport. To that purpose, its clients can count on regular flights from several major low-cost airlines to destinations all over Europe and North Africa.
To enhance its growth while remaining agile, Brussels South Charleroi Airport invested in future-proof Enterprise Connectivity solutions. Getronics was entrusted with the installation of a Cisco LAN & Telephone infrastructure in the new terminal and the maintenance of the LAN & Voice network of the existing terminal.
